On this auspicious day Srila Gurudev Srila Bhakti Sundar Govinda Dev-Goswami Maharaj gave a beautiful lecture in both Bengali and English to the assembled devotees. He explained how this Math has manifested along with Their Lordships Sri Sri Guru-Gauranga-Radha-Madana-Mohanjiu by the grace of Srila Bhakti Raksak Sridhar Dev-Goswami Maharaj. Srila Gurudev highlighted: “We have to practise Krishna Consciousness with dedication, sincerity and austerity.”  Then he started reciting a verse from the Sri Brihan-naradiya Purana.


harer nama harer nama

harer nama eva kevalam

kalau nasty eva nasty eva

nasty eva gatir anyatha


“In this Age of Kali there is no other means, no other means, no other means for self-realisation than chanting the Holy Name, chanting the Holy Name, chanting the Holy Name of Lord Hari.” 


Even though the Absolute manifests Himself in various forms, and in different incarnations, Srila Gurudev said that, as it is explained in Srimad Bhagavad-gita the Lord resides in the heart of His devotees, so we must always avoid abusing them or disrespecting them in any way. Srila Gurudev spoke beautifully for an hour.


Then Sripad Bhakti Sudhir Goswami Maharaj continued the lecture emphasising that the service to the Vaisnava is even more valuable than the direct service to the Lord: “Dasa dasa-anudasa is not a slogan but reality.” 


The theme of Sripad Goswami Maharaj's talk was that we are serving the line of the Rupanuga Sampradaya that follows the central conception of the Infinite: Gopinath, that Krishna that is Madana Mohan. The whole world is infatuated with Madana, Cupid. We are all enchanted by the possibility of enjoying this Cupid conception, but the beauty of 10,000 Cupids is not comparable to the beauty of Sri Krishna. He is the charmer of them all. So we can understand that the natural attraction of the soul resides in the search for His lotus feet. But this Madana Mohan cannot resist the beauty of the devotion in the heart of Srimati Radharani, so She is Madana Mohan Mohini: who charms that same Krishna, who is more beautiful than ten million cupids combined.


Then Sripad Goswami Maharaj said that this Math had manifested for the service of the devotees that were on their way to Nabadwip Dham. So this is a service station and Srila Gurudev often resides here and orchestrates our International Mission of Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Math that is always growing successfully.


Then Sripad Bhakti Kiran Giri Maharaj, Sripad Bhakti Amal Paramahamsa Maharaj and Sripad Bhakti Prapanna Tirtha Maharaj continued with lectures in Bengali.


Jay Sri Sri Guru-Gauranga-Radha-Madana-Mohanjiu ki jay!
