All glories to Sri Guru and Sri Gauranga

Gaudiya Festival Dates

2006 to 2007 - Sri Gaurabda 521

The new calendar for 2007 to 2008 is now available.

This calendar is based on the translation of the Bengali Vaisnava Calendar, "Sri Gaudiya Parvva Talika," compiled by Sriyukta Dibyendu Bhattacharyya, M.Sc., B.T., Jyotibhushan, Retired Headmaster.
Translated to English by Sripad Bhakti Nirmal Acharyya Maharaj.
All dates and times listed here are calculated for Kolkata, India, as referred to at Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Math, Sri Nabadwip Dham.
 
Three printed versions of the Nabadwip Calendar in English:

Illustrated Booklet
(Made in India)

Wall Calendar
(Made in Russia)

Double sided
(Made in Russia)
During his 21st World Tour, Srila Bhakti Sundar Govinda Dev-Goswami Maharaj instructed that throughout the world the devotees will follow this calendar for all dates except for Ekadasis and their associated Paran (break fast with grains) times which may be calculated locally according to the lunar calendar. In this way the days of Appearance, Disappearance, and other Pastimes of the Lord and His great devotees will be observed on the actual day they took place in India, rather than according to the technical local calculation of the 'tithi' (lunar day) which often had devotees observing, for example, the Appearance of Mahaprabhu a day before He actually appeared here in Nabadwip.
2006:
March | April | May | June | July | August | September | October | November | December
