Dear devotees and friends,
On Thursday, March 2nd, 2017, we humbly invite you to celebrate with us the Grand Appearance of our beloved spiritual master and President Acharya of Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Math Global, His Divine Grace Om Vishnupad Paramahamsa Parivrajakacharya-varya Astottara-sata Sri Srila Bhakti Kanan Giri Maharaja.
Celebrations for this most blessed event will be held at SCSM Global Headquarters in New Jersey, USA, the SCSM Global Centers in the UK, and Odessa, Ukraine and by devotees in Bacoor, Philippines.
The festivals will include kirtana, discourses and other all-auspicious activities.
Please RSVP using one of the methods available.
Please note: For disciples of Srila Giri Maharaja this is a half day fast. Also, if you haven’t already done so, please remember to write a personal offering to His Divine Grace glorifying his role in your life and reflecting a mood of gratitude and indebtedness. Keep in mind that we are engaged in service because of the mercy of our spiritual master, who represents Sri Krishna Himself as well as Sri Krishna’s incarnation, Sri Vyasadeva, the Compiler of the Vedas. If you cannot attend the celebration you can email your offering through the website.
Yours in service,
P.S. Rather than any fasting, I will be more pleased if sumptuous prasadam is made available for distribution to all my disciples and friends beginning from eight o’clock in the morning. As told to me by Srila Govinda Maharaja, this was the ideal shown by Srila Bhakti Siddhanta Saraswati Thakura when celebrating the appearance days of Srila Bhakti Vinoda Thakura. I will be very happy if my disciples and friends follow the same.—Swami B.K. Giri
