On Lalitā Saptamī our new deity of Śri Nityānanda Prabhu was installed at Rupanuga Bhajan Ashram. Now Gaura Nitai will come out on Harināma saṅkīrtana with us every weekend for the benefit of all.
On the same morning Śrīpāda Prema Kiśora Prabhu accepted the renounced order of sannyāsa from Śrīmad Bhakti Mādhurya Bon Mahārāja. Due to his advanced age, Śrīmad Bon Mahārāja could not physically come to Vṛndāvana at this time and so he gave the sannyāsa-mantra to Prema Kiśora Prabhu via Skype. Wearing the prasāda sannyāsa cloth of Śrīla Bhakti Gaurava Narasiṅgha Mahārāja, Prema Kiśora Prabhu became Swami Bhakti Kiśora Ārāṇya Mahārāja.
Gaura Gopālā Dāsa performed a Vaiṣṇava homa and after Bon Mahārāja and Ārāṇya Mahāraja spoke for some time, Śrīla Ārāṇya Mahāraja and the devotees walked to Rādhā-Dāmodara Temple to get the blessings of Śrī Śrī Rādhā-Dāmodara, Śrīla Rūpā Gosvāmī, Śrīla Jīva Gosvāmī and Śrīla Prabhupāda.
