Dear devotees and friends,
Please accept my humble dandavat pranams.
I am happy to announce the very humble beginnings of the official websites for the New York/New Jersey branches of Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Math and pray for the blessings of all of you for their success.
On Janmastami day we registered the domain names for two sites, one for New York and one for New Jersey. At present you will not see any difference between the two but it is our hope that future development will cause this to change.
The two sites can be found at:
Those of you in the New York City and Philadelphia areas will find postings of future events and programs here for our locale, so bookmark the sites and don't forget to check in from time to time.
The sites are being constructed with the help of Rita Herman who has kindly accepted overall responsibility for development and maintenance. Anatha Bandhu Prabhu is also assisting with this and in addition is helping to edit and produce content for the sites.
This is a big project for our devotional community with a "world wide" scope for extending our relief work. We hope that many of you will also want to become involved with us. I am especially hopeful to develop a "Daily News" section.
Srila Bhakti Siddhanta Saraswati once commented "there are so many daily papers with news of the mundane world which is very limited. Can we not then present a daily publication reflecting the unlimited activities of the Spiritual World?" To this end we hope to receive appropriate articles, news, photos and so forth from all of you for posting on the sites. We also welcome your comments, suggestions and questions.
Please feel free to contact myself, Rita or Anatha Bandhu via our respective email addresses which follow.
Swami BK Giri: firstname.lastname@example.org
Anatha Bandhu: email@example.com
Rita Herman: firstname.lastname@example.org
As this new project will lead to continuing expenditures from our small Math treasury, all offerings of service donations will be greatly appreciated.
If you would appreciate receiving notices such as this one or if you know others who may like to, please forward the relevant information to us for adding to our emailing list.
