Gaura – Nitai meeting

   Nityananda Prabhu met Chaitanya Mahaprabhu in 1506, when He was 32 years old and the Lord 20 years. It is said that when Nityananda Prabhu reached the land of Nadia, He hid in the house of Nandanacharya, to heighten the ecstasy of meeting through separation. Chaitanya Mahaprabhu aware of the arrival of His eternal associate dispatched Haridas Thakur and Shrivas Pandit to search out Nitai, but they failed. Finally unable to bear the separation any longer, Chaitanya Mahaprabhu Himself went directly to Nityananda Prabhu and the ecstasy of the meeting was so transcendental that every one witnessing it were awed by the sublime experience. A Temple called Shri Gaura-Nityananda commemorates this meeting place in Nadia. 

✨ Nityananda grasped Mahaprabhu with his left hand and His face with his right hand, and looking at him kindly, without looking away, chanted in this way:
“Oh, Gaura Hari! I know you. You are the same Kanai. But how did you leave your dark color, your yellow clothes and your flute so sweet? Why did you leave Vrindavana and Mother Yasoda and come to Navadvipa as the son of Saci? “
