Ekadasi. Fast from grains. Paran (break fast with grains) tomorrow between 9:11 and 10:00 a.m.
Today we are resuming uploads on the Math's website after the recent busy time since the arrival here in Nabadwip of His Divine Grace Srila Bhakti Sundar Govinda Dev-Goswami Maharaj for his glorious Sri Vyasa-Puja. The programme was observed in grand style in Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Math by a multitude of devotees. Srila Govinda Maharaj is showing quite good health here and he is graciously receiving a constant stream of pilgrims.
In the meantime we have received literally thousands of photos from around the world of their grand festivals and preaching activities. These, accompanied by reports from practically every Main Centre, have brought much happiness to His Divine Grace. Srila Bhakti Sundar Govinda Dev-Goswami Maharaj repeatedly sees the photos, shows them to visitors and chants the glories of the devotees everywhere.
During this time, too, we have received numerous emails, phone calls and correspondence from devotees expressing how much they have missed regular updates on the Math's website. Several took the opportunity to explore the extensive material including archives, articles, audio lectures, etc. already on the site. All your messages of appreciation, concern and encouragement are much appreciated.
As a recent pilgrim pointed out, "Every day is a festival in Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Math. From abroad we may not understand why there have been no recent web updates, but here it is very clear to see all the activities and demands on the Office."
We thank you for your huge response and encouragement, and for bearing with us. In particular we thank Jamuna Priya Devi Dasi for regularly uploading many topical pictures on her verandaviews.com website, and for Gaurachandra Prabhu for maintaining a constant flow of Krishna-katha and news in Spanish on the Venezuelan website, Paramakaruna.org.ve.
