yah sankhya-pankena kutarka-pamsuna
vivarta-gartena cha lupta-didhitim
suddham vyadhad vak-sudhaya mahesvaram
krsnam sa jivah prabhur astu me gatih
"With his nectarean teachings, Srila Jiva Goswami Prabhu revealed the Supreme Lord, Krishna, whose effulgence had been hidden by the quicksand of calculation, the dust storm of fallacious logic, and the ditch of illusionism. May he be my shelter."
—Sri Baladev Vidhyabhusan

Srila Jiva Goswami Prabhu: The All-Rounder
"Srila Jiva Goswami Prabhu did everything alone—he cooked, did puja, cleaned the temple, brought water from the Yamuna, and also did personal service to his Guru. He was busy with his service from morning to night, and did everything alone."

Srila Jiva Goswami Prabhu
"I have no power to say what kind of devotion to his Guru Jiva Goswami had. Jiva Goswami's service cannot be compared to anyone's service. Whatever order he would get, he would place it on his head and do it all the time—his mind never went to any other place."

Invitation Letter

Most respected Vaishnavas, Devotees and Well-Wishers,

We are offering obeisance at your feet and extending this letter of invitation.

When most worshippable Srila Bhakti Vinod Thakur decided to leave for Vrindavan, he came to a famous temple of Lord Siva in Tarakeswar, and as he paid his obeisance there, he received a message from Lord Siva, 'Why are you going to Vrindavan? What is your service there? Do not go there. You must discover the birthplace of Chaitanya Mahaprabhu, that is your duty, that is your service.'

Thus, remembering the holy lotus feet of Sach-chid-ananda Srila Bhakti Vinod Thakur Mahasaya and our Gurupadpadma Om Vishnupad Srila Bhakti Sundar Govinda Dev-Goswami Maharaj, by their mercy as well as the mercy of Param Guru Maharaj Srila Bhakti Raksak Sridhar Dev-Goswami Maharaj and Bhagavan Bhakti Siddhanta Saraswati Thakur Prabhupad, a temple of Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Math has manifested in this very Takareswar and we are thus going to inaugurate it and install the Deities of Sri Sri Guru Gauranga Radha Madan-Mohan-sundar jiu.

On this auspicious and special occasion we humbly pray to everybody to join the special inauguration festival that will take place on 26 February 2017 (Sunday) and take part in the class, kirtan, parikrama, prasad seva, and other devotional activities.

Servant of Sri-Guru-Gaura-Nityananda's servants,
