Dear Godbrothers and Godsisters, Devotees and Friends,

The 75th Appearance Day Festival of the most worshipable Acharyya, His Divine Grace Om Visnupad Sri Srila Bhakti Sundar Govinda Dev-Goswami Maharaj, will be celebrated here on Wednesday 10th December 2003. His Divine Grace is the dearmost beloved disciple and associate of the Emperor of Sannyasi Kings, His Divine Grace Om Visnupad Sri Srila Bhakti Raksak Sridhar Dev-Goswami Maharaj, who during his own manifest lifetime installed Srila Bhakti Sundar Govinda Dev-Goswami Maharaj on his exalted throne as the Sevaite-President-Acharyya of the world-renowned institution, Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Math, along with its Spiritually Affiliated Centres and Branches world-wide.

This year we, the devotees of the Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Math, have arranged from the 9th to 13th December ’03 a grand festival accompanied by Kirttan, special worship, glorification, revered offerings to the Temple Deities Sri Sri Guru-Gauranga-Gandharvva-Govindasundar-Giridhari-Laksmi-Varahadev and Gopaljiu, along with respectful Puja offerings unto the lotus feet of His Divine Grace and the distribution of Maha-Prasadam here at Sri Math, and at Sripat Bamunpara (his holy Appearance Place) and our Temples in Calcutta. This year's programme includes the Inauguration of the Temple at Sri Chaitanya Sridhar Govinda Seva Ashram, Sripat Bamunpara, on 11th December, with the arrival there of the Deities of Sri Sri Guru Radha-Gopinathjiu, worshiped for generations by Srila Gurudev's family.
