Sripad Bhakti Premik Siddhanti Maharaj led the Janmastami programme at our Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Ashram in Eugene, Oregon. Mathuranath Prabhu writes, "Much to our great delight His Holiness Sripad Siddhanti Maharaj arrived in time for our grand opening celebration.... His Holiness Siddhanti Maharaj is very popular with the local devotees."

Around the new Ashram:


Mathuranath Prabhu writes on the opening of the Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Ashram in Oregon, the many preparations that went on beforehand, and the future of the Ashram:

It is perfect for our use because it is directly above our living quarters and fully secure with plenty of parking and no other neighbours in any direction. We can have programmes as big and as loud as necessary, with no complaints, and the children can play downstairs or outside. With the enthusiasm that came with Srila Gurudev's good blessings the devotees quickly mobilized and painted, laid new flooring, installed the altar and acquired all the necessary cooking utensils, flowers and paraphernalia to have a grand opening on Janmastami tithi....

Jasomati Devi Dasi especially worked hard and contributed much. Lilamayi Devi Dasi, Harivallabha Prabhu and others also worked hard to bring the new temple space into order. The temple room is fresh and beautiful and all of the devotees are very excited and enthusiastic to do seva in the name of His Divine Grace. We are now open daily for morning and evening arati, regular meetings, classes and the weekly Sunday programme....

It was truly a miracle the way everything fell into place after Srila Gurudev's gracious letter to us and we are grateful that this new centre has manifest for the nourishment of the devotees. We pray that we may always serve His Divine Grace and forever remain dependant upon His good blessings....
