This year the day mercifully manifests on 9th Damodar, Saturday, 6th November 2004.
This day is the 109th Anniversary of the Appearance of our most worshipable Spiritual Master. Under the instruction of our exalted Sevaite President Acharyya, His Divine Grace Srila Bhakti Sundar Govinda Dev-Goswami Maharaj, who is expected to be in America for this occasion, there will be held from 5th to 8th November 2004 special worship and revered offerings to His Divine Grace Srila Guru Maharaj and to the Temple Deities, Sri Sri Guru-Gauranga-Gandharvva-Govindasundar-Giridhari-Laksmi-Varahadev and Gopaljiu, as well as Kirttan, lectures, glorification of Sri Guru-Vaisnava, Prasad distribution and many other devotional activities that will be conducted here at the Math, and at Sripat Hapaniya, and at Dum Dum Park, Kolkata.
