My dandabat pranam to you all.
We are extremely happy to announce that by the grace of Sri Guru
and Sri Gauranga, our most beloved Divine Master, Srila Bhakti Sundar
Govinda Dev Goswami Maharaj, is planning to stay with us at his
London Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Math in the first week of September.
While Srila Gurudev has repeated and stressed many times
that he does not consider this a preaching tour, it is natural that
many will be drawn to have his darshan. The daily itinerary will
depend much upon his health.
As you know our London Temple is very small and accommodation is
extremely difficult. We will be renting nearby accommodation for
the visiting devotees but this will be allocated on a first come
first served basis, so please do let us know if you are planning
to come and hoping for accommodation. We rely fully on donations,
and humbly expect visiting devotees to contribute the cost of any
We are humbly requesting all devotees attending the festivities
during Srila Gurudev's stay to make some service contribution towards
the costs, according to their means. We suggest that each adult
should contribute a minimum of £50 for the duration but whatever
you can give from your heart will be most appreciated.
As previously we anticipate that if Srila Govinda Maharaj is feeling
well and wishes to meet with devotees, then the most likely times
are very early in the morning and mid-afternoon.
Should you need any further information you may contact us at the
London Math on (44 208) 552 3551 or by email at:
We look forward to having your company.
Your humble servant
London Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Math
