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 16th March 2014
This is celebrated as 'Holi' Day.
After Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhuji's descent on earth on this day, it is also a 'holy' day.
As soon as we take up the Mahamantra for chanting we cannot but remember the great avatara purusha –Sri Krishna Chaitanya Mahaprabhu!
Chaitanya Mahaprabhu lived for 48 years only. He spent the first 12 years of his life playing pranks just as Krishna had done in his childhood. For the next 12 years of his life he shut himself up in a room with a few friends and performed Nama sankirtan (chanting the Lord's Names and praises). The next 12 years he visited various holy places. It was during these wanderings that he visited Srirangam in the south. And the last 12 years of his life was spent in solitude inside a cave at Puri.
Chaitanya Mahaprabhu's disciples Sanatana Goswami and Roop Goswami were busy authoring books. They found no peace till they converted the gushing thoughts into words. It is only through such disciples of Mahaprabhu do we learn the life history of this great avatar.

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!
