We wholeheartedly invite you to the divine celebration of the 12th anniversary of Sriman Gauranga Sundar’s installation at His permanent home, “His own home,” as Srila Govinda Maharaj said–at 269 East Saint James St. in San Jose on Wednesday, November 28, 2012.
After being established in San Jose in the 1980s, Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Math took firm root near San Jose State University and Santa Clara University at 269 East Saint James St.
Srila Gurudev Bhakti Sundar Govinda Dev-Goswami Maharaj inaugurated Sri Sri Guru Gauranga Sundar on the day of celebrating Sri Krishna’s divine Rasayatra in 2000. His Divine Grace arrived at the new ashram a few days earlier and oversaw all of the final preparations for Sriman Mahaprabhu to take up permanent residence. Mahaprabhu arrived by a palanquin parade, accompanied by His devotees performing Harinam Sankirtan through downtown.
