Calendar of Vaishnava Festival Dates is now
available on-line. All dates and times listed here are calculated
for Kolkata, India, as referred to at Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Math,
Sri Nabadwip Dham.
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) 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

that is our only solace."

on the vital importance of Srila Bhakti Sundar Govinda Dev-Goswami
Maharaj's mission and presence in this world.

that one can say they once did, and now they are beyond that.
The shelter of Sri Gurudeva is the eternal position of the fortunate
bhaktas. Independence is, as our Acharyyas have stated, the
mentality of the madman."
