Sri Sri Nitai Saci-Sundar are our beloved deities at the Hare Krishna Centre in Leicester.

His Holiness Bhakti Ballabh Puri Goswami gave a most wonderful and inspiring talk during the installation of Their Lordships and the official opening of the Hare Krishna Centre on 13 March 2005, the appearance day of Sri Purusottama Dasa Thakura.

Maharaja is an initiating spiritual master of the International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON). He has established a flourishing community of devotees in Scotland.

Devotees came from all over the UK to celebrate this most auspicious event.

 

More than 150 different bhoga preparations were offered to Their Lordships who blessed everyone who came forward to offer their respects.

Devotees again and again were stunned by the extraordinary beauty of the two Lords who have descended on Leicester to engulf all people in the sankirtana movement of the chanting of the Holy Name and to spread this Holy Name throughout the land.

Lord Caitanya and Nityananda prabhu are the most merciful incarnations of Godhead. They descended 500 years ago to freely distribute love of God to everyone.

The deities received Their first abhisheka bath with panchamrita, i.e. milk, yoghurt, honey, sugar and ghee. Thereafter Their blindfold was taken off and when They were dressed in a beautiful new outfit over 150 bhoga offerings were offered to Them. It was a most magnificent display.

It was overwhelming to see so much support from so many devotees not only from Leicester but from throughout the UK. It was more than we could have ever hoped for. We are eternally grateful for such a strong show of sympathy and enthusiasm for the new Centre.

His Holiness Bhakti Ballabh Puri Goswami Maharaja spoke about the most merciful Lord Gauranga. Devotees had arranged for a sound system which enabled everyone to listen to the talk.

 

Maharaja is an initiating spiritual master of the International Society for Krishna Consciousness, ISKCON. He came all the way from Scotland to attend the installation of the deities during the official opening of the Centre.

He is heading up a community of devotees in Scotland, Karuna Bhavan, which is one of the many branches of the International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON).

Karuna Bhavan is near Lesmahagow, which is between and slightly south of Edinburgh and Glasgow. The devotees preach throughout Scotland and Northern England and are distributing books and running Nama Hatta programs and some festivals. The Scottish yatra is amongst the world leaders in book distribution.

The Scottish devotees are famous for their 'GOURANGA!' campaign.

Tusta Krishna Prabhu from the Manchester Hare Krishna Centre conducted the abhisheka bathing ceremony for the deities. He is a qualified Brahmin and pujari (priest) as well as a skilled mridangam player.

Tusta Krishna Prabhu made sure that the kirtan for Their Lordships was so contagious that no one was able to escape the transcendental atmosphere. Devotees were shouting out on top of their voice again and again 'GOURANGA! GOURANGA!'

At one point Puri Maharaja stopped the kirtan and ask everyone to call out loudly for the Lord to appear. It became obvious to everyone present that the Lord had actually made His divine decent manifesting Himself as the beautiful forms of Sri Sri Nitai Saci-Sundar.
