Sri Gaura Purnima: Our Main Festival
"In the age of Kali, this is the main and the biggest of all festivals—the appearance day of Gauranga Mahaprabhu. Mahaprabhu shows us what is called separation and we must hanker for that, we must understand and realise this. We must come to this level."

Great News from Uluberia
(31 March–2 April 2019 | 48 photographs, 3.7 Mb)
His Divine Grace Om Vishnupad Srila Bhakti Nirmal Acharya Maharaj started preaching in Uluberia over twenty years ago, in 1990s, with just a handful of devotees. Since then, His Divine Grace brought innumerable devotees to the holy lotus feet of Om Vishnupad Srila B.S. Govinda Dev-Goswami Maharaj, and the Uluberia community of devotees has grown into several hundreds of members of Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Math family, many of whom we have had the fortune to meet during the main festivals of the Math. Following the mood of Sriman Mahaprabhu (who would appoint devotees as leaders, or 'gurus' of their locality—'yare dekha, tare kaha 'krsna'-upadesa amara ajnaya guru hana tara' ei desa'), His Divine Grace calls Sri Rama Krishna Prabhu (a disciple of Srila B.R. Sridhar Dev-Goswami Maharaj) the 'Guru' of Uluberia. This year His Divine Grace has finally shed his causeless and inconceivable mercy onto this community and inaugurated the construction of the long-awaited Temple of Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Math. The delight of the devotees went so far that they actually themselves partake of the construction service along with the hired workers. We are honoured and happy to share the first photographs from the site.

Importance of Service Mood
"'I will serve; service is our life'—until and unless this desire, this mood comes to us, Krishna-katha will not enter our ears. At any time—whether I am thinking, sleeping, or eating, I always think, 'What is the next service? What is the next service?'"

SRI NABADWIP DHAM MAHATMYA (Appendix)

Sri Gaura Krishna Tattva
"Are Krishna and Gaura separate entities? Who came first, Sri Krishna or Sri Chaitanya? Why is it a disturbance to worship Gaura and neglect Krishna, or worship Krishna and neglect Gaura? In what plane do the associates in the Pastimes of Sri Gaura and the associates in the Pastimes of Sri Krishna reside together?"

The Land of Sweetness
"Sri Gaudiya Math's Dham-parikrama invites everyone to try for that, to try to acquire that wealth. However small, or of whatever character it may be, its object is connected with that highest plane given by Mahaprabhu Sri Chaitanyadev, the Lord of love and the distribution of love."

The Ten Offences to the Holy Dham
"Disrespecting Sri Guru and the sadhus, who are the revealers of the Dham. Considering the Dham temporary. Residing in the Dham and engaging in mundane activities. Considering the glories of the Dham exaggerated praise or imaginary..."

Glossary
"Dham lit. 'abode'; the homeland of the Supreme Lord where He performs His eternal Pastimes; a plane existing in the spiritual world that appears within the material world when the Lord descends to perform Pastimes."

Maps
The map and legend (including their footnotes) presented here have been reconstructed from Srila Bhakti Vinod Thakur's 1888 publication of Sri Nabadwip- dhama-mahatmya and translated into English. Their size, proportions, and content have been preserved according to the original as far as possible.

(Thus ends the online publication of Sri Nabadwip Dham-mahatmya)

Sri Godrumdwip Bhajan
"When Srila Bhaktivinod Thakur was staying in Godrumdwip, he wrote a song about Gurudev. When I read it, I was very pleased. This book is sold for ten rupees in the bookstore, but I thought, 'The price of this book is ten million dollars.'"

Service with Heart

The Right to Serve
"Who can give the right to serve Srimati Radharani, or Krishna also? Krishna is the property of Srimati Radharani and Srimati Radharani is non-different from Gurudev. So, if we properly surrender to the Guru, Gurudev can give us the permission, Gurudev can give us the right to serve the Lord."

 "Lord Ramachandra became King during Treta-yuga, but because of His good government, the age was like Satya-yuga. Everyone was religious and completely happy."
 "He was a saintly king, and everything in His character was good, untinged by qualities like anger. He taught good behavior for everyone, especially for householders, in terms of varnasrama-dharma. Thus He taught the general public by His personal activities."
 "Lord Ramachandra's spotless name and fame, which vanquish all sinful reactions, are celebrated in all directions, like the ornamental cloth of the victorious elephant that conquers all directions."

Where Your Desire
Can Take You
Two lessons taught by Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu: both King Prataparudra and Damodar Pandit had strong desire for Mahaprabhu's mercy and earnestness in service, but was their attainment the same?

 

Sri Sri Prema-Vivarta
“Brother, either serve Gora or serve society. The two never remain in one place together.”

If you cannot bow down to the lotus feet of Krishna, bow down to the devotees
of Krishna, then what is the use of this head?
