Balarama Jayanti Celebration at Vasudeva's, Arci's and Karuna Mayi's (Pictures)

The temple has a very small and beautiful Deity of Balarama, Subhadra and Jagannatha. But for the Balarama Jayanti celebration we took them for a ride through Gothenburg (a little jumpy) to Vasudeva's, Arci's and their daughter Karuna Mayi's place, who also have them on their home altar, to celebrate the day at theirs, with some singing, lecture and prasadam.

Nimaihuset's Balarama, Subhadra and Jagannatha Deities, very, very small and very, very dear, in front of Gurumaharaj, guest-starring on Arci's and Vasudeva's home altar.

 Vasudeva's and Arci's home altar with Balarama, Subhadra and Jagannatha.

Vasudeva gave lecture on Srimad Bhagavatam Canto 10 about Balarama – Krishna's first expansion, His big brother, and also Sri Guru/the Guru principle (thus also Nityananda) – killing a demon. To the left a Mrdanga drum (Balarama).
