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 Sunday, 31st October 2010.
This day is the 115th Anniversary of the Appearance of our most worshipable Spiritual Master. Under the direction of Srila Bhakti Nirmal Acharya Maharaj, the Math's successor Sevaite President Acharyya directly appointed by Srila Sridhar Maharaj's own successor, His Divine Grace Srila Bhakti Sundar Govinda Dev-Goswami Maharaj, there will be held from 30th October to 3rd November 2010 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.
The current successor Sevaite President Acharyya of Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Math, Srila Bhakti Nirmal Acharya Maharaj, is expected to personally lead the festivals here.
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.
