Is there a danda by Nityananda Prabhu?

Citta Hari Dasa - January 18, 2005 5:34 pm

Yes there is. It's dark green bamboo; Guru Maharaja put it there one day about a year or two ago.

Jaya! Yes, thank you, Guru-nistha Prabhu, for these weekly darshans of the Lords. I've never seen that green outfit. It's pretty neat!

It's time for a new one again... These are my favorite outfits so far.


Guru-nistha Das - February 6, 2005 7:40 pm

Guru Maharaja made a remark the other day that this week the Deities are especially beautiful...

Their purple outfit is really nice! What are the names of the silas that you're worshiping at Audarya?

Brianfeather - February 7, 2005 2:15 pm

WOW ! Thats the best picture yet ! Thanks for the Darshan!!!



Citta Hari Dasa - February 8, 2005 12:06 am

We have four silas. To Nityananda Prabhu's right is a large Govardhana-sila (Giriraja), to Mahaprabhu's left are Krsna-Balarama (visible in the picture of the green outfit above), and to Krsna and Balarama's left is a small Govardhana-sila worshipped as Radha-Krsna (on a separate table, not visible).

I wonder if their increasing beauty has anything to do with their being photographed and admired on this forum :lol:

Bijaya Kumara Das - February 16, 2005 5:32 am

Prabhupadas' Rhada Krsna looks so nice Guru Maharaja.

Arcanasiddhi Devi Dasi - February 17, 2005 12:01 am

Wonderful Deities. Who dresses Gaura Nitai and who paints the silas?

Citta Hari Prabhu dresses the Deities and paints the Silas. The daily worship of the Sri Sri Giriraja Radha-Madan-Mohan varies I think it is done by Vrindaranya Prabhu now. Regardless, the Deities are always splendid.


In service,

Is there significance to the shape of the silas. I've seen mostly round silas, but those at Audarya are more square shaped. Is that significant?


Also, is it advised for grhasthas to worship silas in particular? Is this before or after initiation?


Just curious,

Sounds like you are talking about Salagrama Silas not Govardhana Silas.

Traditionally, murtis ("deities") were worshipped only in temples; grihasthas would worship silas at home. Nowadays this has changed, so that many people have murtis on their home altars. Sometimes people worship Gaura-Nitai murtis before initiation (though I think Guru Maharaja disapproves of this), but for silas the standard has always been that one cannot worship them before (second) initiation.
