Please accept my dandabat
pranams. I am writing from our Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Seva Ashram,
in Soquel, California. As all are aware, Srila Bhakti Sundar Govinda
Dev-Goswami Maharaj, our most beloved Guru and guardian is planning,
health permitting, to reurn here in December.
We want to welcome all
the devotees who desire to join with us in receiving and serving
Srila Govinda Maharaj.
If you wish to join
us, in preparation for your arrival, we are asking if you could
kindly assist us in the following ways:
- Please inform us
when you are coming, how many persons will be with you and how
long you will be staying. This will enable us to receive our visitors.
If you need assistance, tell us where you will be arriving, and
what transportation you will need. If you plan on renting a car,
or will be making your own accommodations, please let us know.
- Try to arrange accommodations
if possible to stay with members of our grihastha community as
the facilities at the ashram itself are somewhat limited.
- If you are planning
on staying at the ashram, you should bring your own bedding.
- We are asking
those who are planning on coming to please make a contribution
of $200 per person. This will help us properly serve our guests.
We will provide everyone with three meals a day. We want all to
feel welcome, and can understand that not everyone has the same
capacity; we want to try to accommodate you.
- If you would like
to communicate directly with us, you may call the Seva Ashram
at (831) 462-4712. Or you may send an email to me at:
We look forward to receiving
Swami Bhakti Pavan Janardan
Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Seva Ashram,
For devotees who would like local inn accommodation please
