Sri Sri Gaura Nitai

Many temples will have Sri Sri Gaura Nitai, or Lord Caitanya and Lord Nityananda. Lord Nityananda is on the left wearing blue, while Lord Caitanya is on the right wearing yellow. Lord Nityananda, the incarnation of Lord Balarama in the current era, was the close associate of Lord Caitanya throughout the sankirtana movement. Lord Caitanya, the incarnation of both Radha and Krsna in the present era, began the sankirtana movement spreading the love of Sri Krsna.

 

Nityananda Trayodasi is the appearance day of Lord Nityananda. Gaura Purnima is the appearance day of Lord Caitanya.
