Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji's Namadwaars and GOD satsangs across the world celebrates Chaitanya Mahaprabhu Jayanthi by chanting Mahamantra, Annadhanam to needy and Nagarakirtan on 26th March 2013
This is celebrated as 'Holi' Day.
After Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhuji's descent on earth on this day, it is also a 'holy' day.
Chaitanya Mahăprabhu, a great scholar that he was, threw away everything and took to incessant chanting of 'eka năma' (One Name) 'Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare! Hare Răma Hare Răma Răma Răma Hare Hare!' Occasionally he would recite a sloka from the Bhăgavatam. Likewise, in Ănandăshram only 'Sri Răm Jaya Răm Jaya Jaya Răm' is being chanted. They go around a lighted lamp ('kuttu villakku') singing only this one Name of Răma as Divya Năma kirtan. Mahătmas such as Bodendra Swami, Thiagaraja Swami, Yogi Rămsuratkumar, Papa Rămdăs performed incessant chanting of Răma Năma. Did this not take them to the highest state? Năma japa is very powerful. It brings in 'siddhis' (supernatural faculties). There once lived an old lady known by all as 'thukkiri pătti'. She was a child widow who took to incessant chanting of Năma of the Lord. She did crores and crores of Năma japa. She had kept count of the Năma by drawing lines on the walls of her room. When anyone approached her with problems she used to give him or her the Năma, which helped him/her a great deal. If the rich approached her she asked them to invite Bhagavatăs home to get Năma chanted and honour them. To the poor she gave the Năma from her own tapas. God helps those who call out to Him. So, call out to Him. Let the Name of the Lord play on your tongue always because only then will it come to you at the moment of crisis-just as Draupadi called out to Krishna

While those who have mastered the Mantras to provide relief to mundane worldly pains like scorpion bite etc. hesitate to disclose the Mantras, how compassionate is our Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu, who has generously given to everyone the greatest of Mantras - the Mahamantra for the welfare of the entire Universe!
