The Gaura Purnima festival was celebrated on March 12th, 2017 at ISKCON Bangalore. Gaura Purnima heralds the New Year in the Gaudiya Vaishnava calendar. Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu appeared on this day in the evening, over 500 years ago in a place called Yogapitha in Mayapur, West Bengal, India.

He was the tenth and youngest son of Sri Jagannatha Mishra and Srimati Sachidevi. Lord Chaitanya Mahaprabhu took birth under a neem tree, hence fondly called Nimai
