Today Feb 16th is the appearance day celebrations of Lord Nityananda.
Who is Lord Nityananda? Lord Nityananda is Lord Balarama Himself. About 500 years ago Lord Krishna appeared as Lord Chaitanya in Navadvipa in West Bengal. According to Gaudiya Vaishnava philosophy Lord Chaitanya is Lord Krishna in the mood of Radharani.
Lord Krishna, being the Supreme God, lives in Spiritual world and descends to material world for the pleasure of His loving devotees. When Lord appears, He appears with His associates and paraphernalia. Lord Balarama is elder brother of Lord Krishna in Spiritual World and when Lord Krishna wants to descend as Lord Chaitanya, Balarama appears as Lord Nityananda to take part in the pastimes of Supreme Lord.
