Appearance day of Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakur was celebrated in Mayapur on the 26th September. A large murti of him was placed next to the Panchatattva altar. It was beautifully decorated with many flower garlands.
Around 11:30 am, hundreds of bhogas were offered to him. Next, devotees chanted the pranama mantras of Guru parampara and offered him flowers three times (pushpanjali). HH Bhakti Nityananda Swami then performed an arati in his honor.
Many Gurukul students attended this event. They participated actively in kirtana and bhajans which went on throughout the program. Devotees were extremely eager to have his mahaprasad. They finally received it although they had to stands in a queue for a short while.
