EXPRESSION

Sri Sri Anu Mahaprabhu (Name of Gouranga Mahaprabhu in Manipuri style) was installed in the year 1798 at Nabadwip, West Bengal by the Manipur king Rajarshi Bhagya Chandra Singh. From then Raas Leela takes place at Nabadwip in Manipuri style. The Rasa lila (also known as Raas Leela) is part of the traditional story of Lord Krishna described in Hindu scriptures such as the Bhagavata Purana and literature such as the Gita Govinda, where He dances with Radha and her friends. It takes place at night when the Gopis (cowherd girls) of Vrindavana, upon hearing the sound of Krishna’s flute, sneak away from their households and families to dance with Krishna. Here the little girl is dressed as Radha in Manipuri style.
