"His complexion is the hue of fresh cream tinged with kunkum. He is the ever-fresh Cupid who shoots arrows of newly blossoming flowers. He bears newer and newer moods of emotional ecstasies. He is fond of performing novel dances. He makes ever-new jokes that cause much laughter. His brilliant luster is like freshly cast gold. I bow down to Gaura, the beautiful son of Mother Saci." (Sarvabhauma Bhattacarya: Sri Saci-sutastaka)
This year's Gaura Purnima festival will be celebrated on 1st March (Thursday), 2018.
