Panihati Festival Leela

The Panihati Chida-Dahi festival is celebrated to commemorate the meeting of Srila Raghunatha Dasa Goswami with Sri Nityananda Prabhu for the first time in a village named Panihati near Kolkata in West Bengal.

Srila Raghunatha dasa was punished by Nityananda Prabhu for having to arrange chida-curd prasadam for all the thousands of devotees who came here. Srila Raghunatha dasa Goswami was very pleased to hear this and arranged a large amount of chida-curd prasadam and offered food to the Lord. Since then this festival is also known as Dand Mahotsav (festival of punishment). It is celebrated on the Trayodashi of Shukla Paksha in the month of Jyestha (May-June).
