All glories to His Divine Grace Om Visnupad Srila Bhakti Sundar Govinda Dev-Goswami Maharaj.

His Divine Grace came down every morning to pay respects to Srila Bhakti Rakshak Sridhar Dev-Goswami Maharaj and to Their Lordships Sri Sri Guru Gauranga Gandharvva Govinda Sundarjiu, and to bless the devotees.

The morning began with enthusiastic pilgrims chanting "Jaya Sachinandana, Jaya Gaurahari" through the streets of Nabadwip Dham. This year, Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Math accommodated around 3,000 pilgrims and thousands more joined the parikrama.

There were 150 Western devotees from twenty-two different countries, and Sripad Bhakti Nirmal Acharyya Maharaj and his sankirttan party invited pilgrims from many different villages on his preaching programmes.

Reading from 'Sri Nabadwip Dham Mahatmya:'

All glories to Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu, the son of Sachi. All glories to Sri Nityananda Prabhu, the life and soul of Jahnava-devi. All glories to Sri Nabadwip Dham, the topmost of holy places, where Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu appeared in the age of Kali. Nityananda Prabhu said:

"Listen to My words: Nabadwip, the holy land of Sri Chaitanya, is non-different from Vrindavan, the holy land of Sri Krishna. Measuring thirty-two miles in circumference, Nabadwip consists of nine islands, which form an eight-petalled lotus that floats on the waters of the Ganges. Eight of the islands form eight petals of the lotus, and the centre of that lotus is the ninth island called Antardwip. The centre of Antardwip is Mayapur."
