Dear devotees and friends, we humbly invite you to participate in the festival for the Grand 123th Appearance Day Celebration of Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Math’s Founder President Acharya, Om Vishnupada Paramahamsa Parivrajakacharya-varya Astottara-sata Sri Srila Bhakti Rakṣaka Śrīdhara Deva-Goswāmī Mahārāja which will take place at the Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Math Global Headquarters in New Jersey, USA and at the SCSM Global Center in the UK.
Tuesday we are celebrating Sri Krishna’s appearance. The following day is Sri Nandotsava, the day Sri Nanda Maharaja celebrated his son’s birth by distributing great quantities of his wealth in charity. That day also marks the appearance day of our Divine Master Srila Bhaktivedanta Swami Maharaja. Therefore, we can consider Srila Swami Maharaja’s appearance to be the greatest gift of charity of Sri Nanda. Sri Krishna’s appearance “to annihilate the demons and establish the principals of religion”… Read More... “Srila Giri Maharaja – Krishna’s appearance, Nanda Maharaja’s greatest gifts.”
Dear devotees and friends: We humbly invite you to participate at the SCSM Global Headquarters in New Jersey, USA and at our U.K. center in the celebration of the grand festival of Sri Krishna Janmastami on Tuesday 15th August 2017 at 8pm until 12am midnight. Complete fast all day until midnight (then no grains).
The disappearance of Sri Guru reveals a great many things to those whose diligence applied to studying the event is sufficient to catch them. The day of his disappearance is a time to memorialize the greatness of Sri Gurudeva. The days following his disappearance are a time for those who proclaim his greatness to walk through the purificatory fire sparked by the event. Some will be burned by the fire while surviving it, others will be consumed by it, a few will emerge in a brilliant pure golden form as an example for all to follow.
So there may be disturbances, rather, we may say it should

One of the 172 new videos added to the Srila Govinda Maharaja Archive
We have just added 172 new videos to the Srila Bhakti Sundar Govinda Dev Goswami Maharaja Archive.
These videos were languishing in an old 1990s video tape format. Recently we were able to find a suitable encoder to allow us to upload them digitally.
No editing was done for content or duration. Each of these videos represent a single video tape. Each tape was ripped to MP4, with only slight corrections made for color and sound. Otherwise, they are presented here exactly as they were recorded during the 1990s and early 2000s.
I would love to visit your center and attend a program. Do you have scheduled programs at your center?
