The grand evening arati kirtan of SriSri Nityananda Trayodashi - birthday of
SriSri Nityanamda Mahaprabhu (when Bandhusundar came out of Gambhira after
remaining closeted inside for 12 years in 1913 - 13th Magh, 1320 Bengali year,
just for 3 days, starting this day). This grand kirtan evening was on February 6, 2001
that kept the Gambhira temple and the ashram reverberated in kirtan
songs in the midst of celestial pleasure. This kirtan is indeed
a perpetual joy to witness and reminisce. The 'brigraha' (statue) of Bandhusundar
appears to be alive and very joyful to watch this kirtan festivities during this time.
