Another name for this celebration is gaura Purnima. Several regions of india commemorate chaitanya Jayanti, including Bengal, Orissa, Bihar, and Jharkhand. Gauranga is the common term used to refer to Sri chaitanya Mahaprabhu. Sri chaitanya Mahaprabhu was a monk who worked as a social reformer in eastern india during the sixteenth century. He is regarded as an avatar of Lord krishna by Gaudiya Vaishnavism adherents. During his lifetime, he popularized the chanting of the Hare krishna maha-mantra and dedicated his adoration to Lord krishna and Radha. Because he was born beneath a neem tree, Chaitanyha Mahaprabhu is also known by the name Nimai.
