Lord Balarama, who is the elder brother of Sri Krsna, appeared in this world to enhance and support the transcendental pastimes of the Lord. Being non-different from Lord Krsna Himself, Lord Balarama is known as the original spiritual master. Devotees of the Lord, pray to Him for spiritual strenght.
HH Jaya Pataka Swami Maharaja gave a wonderful class, narrating different pastimes of Krsna and Balarama, and explaining the significance of Balarama’s appearance in this world.
A nice bathing ceremony was held at the temple, for the pleasure of Sri Balarama ji shilas, accompanied by ecstatic kirtan and distibution of maha prasada. Srila Prabhupada explained that normally Lord Krsna appears for the pleasure of His devotees, but when He appears with His brother Balarama, He simply appears for His own pleasure, to enjoy different pastimes together.
Balarama ji ki Jaya!!!
