Sri Vyasa-puja Festival
Honourable Vaisnavas, Godbrothers and Sisters, Devotees and Friends,
The ninth day of the waning moon of the Karttik month is supremely purifying and all-auspicious for the world because the son of Lord Nityananda, the Personification of Hari-Kirttan, Sri Virachandra Prabhu, as well as his non-different representation, our beloved Divine Master His Divine Grace Ananta-sri-vibhusita paramahamsa kula churamani Jagad Guru Sri Srila Bhakti Raksak Sridhar Dev-Goswami Maharaj made their holy Appearances in this world on this very date. This year the day mercifully manifests on Monday, 12th October 2009.
This day is the 114th Anniversary of the Appearance of our most worshipable Spiritual Master. Under the direction of our exalted Sevaite President Acharyya, His Divine Grace Srila Bhakti Sundar Govinda Dev-Goswami Maharaj, there will be held from 11th to 15th October 2009 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, Calcutta.
Srila Guru Maharaj's exalted, appointed successor Sevaite President Acharyya of Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Math, Srila Bhakti Sundar Govinda Dev-Goswami Maharaj, is expected to be in Calcutta, to personally lead the festivals, but, health permitting, His Divine Grace may make a surprise visit to Nabadwip for this special occasion.
We will be much obliged to have the kind company of you and your friends for this Grand Celebration to enhance this great Festival of Pure Devotion.
This year the Sri Vyasa-puja Festivals will be followed by informal Karttik Pilgrimages and Parikramas based from our Sri Govardhan and Sri Vrindavan Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Maths.
Please bring with you appropriate bedding for the season, e.g. light sleeping bag and inner sheet, mosquito net, flashlight, personal essentials and first aid items.
The normal programme and arrangements are subject to change by the will of providence....
Chaitanya Saraswat Math, Nabadwip
