Nityananda Prabhu Appearance DayToday is a fast until noon in observance of the appearance anniversary of Lord Nityananda. Nityananda Prabhu appeared as Chaitanya Mahaprabhus principal associate for spreading the congregational chanting of the holy names of the Lord. He appeared in 1474 in the village of Ekachakra, now in West Bengal. He especially spread the holy name of Krishna throughout Bengal. His beauty was so enchanting and He was so full of ecstatic love for Krishna that, wherever He moved, crowds of people would follow and become lovers of God. He is considered an incarnation of Krishnas principal expansion, Balarama.
