Srila Govinda Maharaja personally selected Srila Bhakti Kanan Giri Maharaja as his successor Acharya for New York, New Jersey and Detroit prior to his disappearance on March 27, 2010.
On November 6, 1985, Srila Sridhar Maharaja named his successor, Srila Bhakti Sundar Govinda Dev Goswami Maharaja, and appointed him to the post of Sevaite President-Acharya of his main Math in Navadwip Dham as well as all of its branches worldwide.
This Math was originally established by the order of Srila Bhakti Rakshak Sridhar Dev Goswami Maharaja in 1987.
A Math is a residence for the servitors of the Supreme Lord Sri Krishna and His devotees. Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Math, as conceived by Srila Sridhar Maharaja, is in the line of devotion preached and practiced by Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu as delineated in the precepts of Srila Bhakti Siddhanta Saraswati Thakur.
