“I offer my obeisances to Sri Krishna Chaitanya, Prabhu Nityananda, Sri Advaita, Gadadhara, Srivasa, and all others in the line of devotion.”

Devotees in Mayapur celebrated appearance of Srivasa Pandita on 14th March. As per Vedic authorities, he is considered to be an incarnation of Narada Muni. Every night, Mahaprabhu and His associates would chant the names of Krishna and dance in Srivasa Pandita’s house. Srivasa Pandita never made any effort to support himself or his dependents. Because of his full dedication to Lord Chaitanya and His mission, Lord Chaitanya provided for all his needs.

Around 12 noon, there was abhishek of Deity of Srivasa pandit in Panca tattva hall. This was accompanied with kirtana and almost the entire Temple hall was full of enthusiastic devotees. Next, there was distribution of carnamrita. Devotees had prepared many types of bhoga which were offered to Srivasa Pandit. Finally, there was puspanjali, arati of Srivasa Pandit and distribution of mahaprasad to assembled devotees.
