Dear Friend of the Ashram,
Please accept my humble obeisance at your feet. On behalf of Srila Bhakti Pavan Janardan Maharaj, we wish to extend an invitation to join our Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Seva Ashram in the devotional program in honor of the disappearance of our most worshippable and beloved Gurudev, Om Vishnupad Srila Bhakti Sundar Govinda Dev-Goswami Maharaj which manifests on Tuesday, April 16th this year.
I kindly invite you to participate in the special program of glorification, worship, kirtan, prasad distribution, and other devotional activities to be held on this auspicious day. We shall feel blessed to have your association and presence at either our Santa Cruz or San Jose Seva Ashrams.
The program will begin with arotik at 6:30 pm, but there are opportunities to engage in seva all day long. Just come early if you’d like to be engaged in devotional service.
Yours in the Lord’s service,
Sushila Devi Dasi
vara-tanum bhakty anvitam-sundaram
vande visva-gurun cha
divya-bhagavat-premno hi bija-pradam
I offer my obeisance unto he who perfectly fulfils his Gurudev’s most cherished desires; who is fully adorned with the blessings of his Gurudev’s associates; who is expert in all aspects of Vedic knowledge, both conceivable and inconceivable; who is the pre-eminent follower of Srila Rupa Goswami Prabhu’s line; who is known as ‘Govinda’—Srila Bhakti Sundar Govinda Dev-Goswami Maharaj; whose beautiful, effulgent, exalted form is infused with pure devotion; who is the Guru of the entire universe; and who is the giver of the seed of divine love for the Supreme Lord.
Composed by Srila Bhakti Rakshak Sridhar Maharaj

Have you ever listened to Janardan Maharaj’s daily reading of Sri Chaitanya Charitamrita by Srila Krishnadas Kaviraj Goswami? Here’s the first chapter of this incredible scripture:
120724 Adi 1a The Spiritual Masters.mp3 (64 minutes, 44.6 MB)*
120725 Adi 1b The Spiritual Masters.mp3 (48 minutes, 33.3 MB)
The first chapter begins with fourteen Sanskrit verses giving ontology so that we can understand the pastimes and what is going to be presented in the Sri Chaitanya Charitamrita. The first six verses describe Mahaprabhu, then the next five describe Nityananda Prabhu. The next two verses describe the truth of Adwaita Prabhu and the following verse describes the Pancha-tattva.
