To celebrate Bhakta Janesh Patel’s offering a new altar for the pleasure of Thier Lordships Sri Sri Gaura-Nitai and Srila Prabhupada, Giriraj Swami and other devotees congregated at Janesh’s home in Santa Barbara for a program of chanting, dancing, feasting, and philosophy. Giriraj Swami read from Sri Caitanya-caritamrta, Adi-lila, Chapter 1, beginning with text 84:

vande sri-krsna-caitanya-
  nityanandau sahoditau
gaudodaye puspavantau
  citrau san-dau tamo-nudau

“I offer my respectful obeisances unto Sri Krsna Caitanya and Lord Nityananda, who are like the sun and moon. They have arisen simultaneously on the horizon of Gauda to dissipate the darkness of ignorance and thus wonderfully bestow benediction upon all.”
