Dear devotees and friends, we humbly invite you to participate in the observance of the disappearance from this world of Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Math’s Founder President Acharya, Om Vishnupad Paramahamsa Parivrajakacharya-varya Astottara-sata Sri Srila Bhakti Raksak Sridhar Dev-Goswami Maharaj which will take place at SCSM Global Headquarters in New Jersey, USA, and also at the UK and Odessa, Ukraine centres.
Srimati Lilavati Devi serves alongside her husband Sriman Uddharan dasa Adhikari in our UK preaching center. Both are senior disciples of HIs Divine Grace Srila Sridhara Maharaja, and dedicated servants of Srila Bhakti Sundar Govinda Maharaja. Srimati Lilavat Devi is what Srila Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada called an “all rounder” due to her expertise in many fields. Beside being an avid gardener, she is very expert and proficient in many other ways; as a seamstress, artist, cook and too many other fields to enumerate. She might be termed a renaissance lady, but it would not do justice to her devotional mood for which the only proper consideration should be to recall the nature of the gopis of Vrndavana, who, like Srimati Radharani, their leader, were proficient in all types of
Dearest Srila Giri Maharaja,
Please see me at your lotus feet and I pray you accept my most humble obeisances.
I hope all is well with you and the math. I saw all the hard work you were doing and the repairs being undertaken and I can’t describe the feelings I had. I truly wanted to be there to help with those repairs (although I am not too good with heights) but also I was overwhelmed with such an admiration and love for you and your dedication to the math.
Today is Guru Purnima. I wanted to take this opportunity to let you know how grateful me and my family are that you have taken us under your shelter and shared your wisdom.
I keep and archive every one of your letters from the very first and many times have gone back through and reread your replies and the scripture

Oh Giri Maharaj, I am suffering in such Hellish pain day in and out. I am in sheer terror, please pray that Krsna lets me leave my body!
The material body is always giving us various pains and pleasures, sometimes great, sometimes small. These are temporary and we must try our best to tolerate them.
I cannot pray to Krishna to let you leave your body. That is like asking Krishna to let you commit suicide. Suicide is a sin because it is an attempt to deny Krishna control over our lives. Our bodies are not ours, they are His, to be used for His seva. During the course of our seva attempts there will be many obstacles; bodily pains and pleasures are two such obstacles. We must tolerate them with the knowledge that Krishna will decide what is best for us, whether

Dear Sriman Jagadananda dasa,
Please accept my blessings and well-wishes.
I pray all is well with you and the Math.
If you have time please let me know how you are and how everything at the math is.
By the grace of Sri Guru and Vaishnavas we are continuing our seva to Srila Gurudeva, as our capacity allows. During my life I have been very fortunate to have the association and confidence of faithful devotees who stand as examples of how to proceed along the path of Krishna Consciousness. I am most unworthy of such association and remain in constant awe that, despite my many shortcomings, I continue to be tolerated and accepted as their servant, friend and well-wisher. Standing so far distant from the ocean of causeless mercy of the Lord’s devotees, yet having been touched

Guru Maharaja: Chitragupta, he’s the record keeper of Yamaraja. What do you now want to say?
Devotee: Does he have some special connection with Paramatma? His recording system is so intricate he must have some connection with Paramatma.
Guru Maharaja: Some sort, because he must have eligibility of recording of reading all the movements in this mundane world. By the vibration, whatever is happening he can record it, his heart automatically,
