Mahamamandaleshwar Mahant Krsna Balaram Swamiji
His divine Grace Mahant Krsna Balaram Swamiji appeared in and was raised by an enlightened Gaudiya-Brahmana family, descending from Kasyapa Muni, in the holiest land in India, Sri Vrindaban Dhama. He is expert in Vedic knowledge and holy astrology. He annually calculates the Vaisnava Calendar telling the proper Holy dates and Ekadasi dates. This calendar is calculated with exact agreement with the ancient scripture Haribhakti Vilasa of Srila Sanatana Goswami, a direct disciple of Lord Chaitanya Mahaprabhu.
Note: It is incumbent upon every follower of Bhagavat Dharma Samaj to abide by this properly astrologically calculated calendar following the exact system of the Haribhakti Vilasa. There are two systems of Vedic astrology--Solar calculation and Lunar calculation. The Vaisnava , devotional lineage, follows the Lunar calendar to calculate the exact Tithi (the lunar day). There are twenty-seven constellations and they travel with the moon. As the moon travels, the Tithi is carried by the moon. Therefore, the Vedic calculation of religious dates works per the position of the moon, and not according to the geographical position of a particular country. In spiritual life, knowing the proper calculation of the Tithi is more important than observing it.

Apr 25 Thu Purnima (full moon day) Balaram Rasayatra - A partial lunar eclipse which begins at 1:22 after midnight the 25th and ends at 1:53 am on the same morning. It is a partial lunar eclipse in which the moon will remain visible while in eclipse. In this situation the temple will remain closed after midday's worship on this day and will open on the 26th for Mangalarati pooja. It means all the worships will end for the Lord after midday and the Lord will take His rest in the night clothes on this day and will have His Mangalarati worship on the morning of the 26th.
