Date: 
Mon, 2017-01-09



Today is Dwadasi, the twelfth day of the moon. According to our calculations, based on the Gcal Vaishnava Calendar services, today is the day to observe the Ekadasi fast.

Today is also the appearance day of Jagadisa Pandita, a prominent devotee of Lord Nityananda. Regarding Jagadisa Pandita, the Chaitanya-Charitamrita says:

"Jagadisa Pandita, the fifteenth branch of Lord Nityananda's followers, was the deliverer of the entire world. Devotional love of Krishna showered from him like torrents of rain."

He lived near Lord Chaitanya's house in Navadwip, and would cook special items for the Lord when He was not feeling well.
