"Gurudev Is My Everything"
"We must not misinterpret what Gurudev told. Devotees all over the world can realise easily what is Srila Sridhar Maharaj's conception, what is Gurudev's conception, and they can understand whether they are following it or not. Your main focus must be always to please your Guru properly. Name and fame is for your guru—you must not preach for your name and fame, you must preach to please your guru."

His Divine Grace Om Vishnupad Srila Bhakti Nirmal Acharya Maharaj:

"I am praying to all the devotees all over the world—you must follow the government rules. I think almost all countries are in lockdown now. You must follow the lockdown rules because this dangerous virus is now all over the world. I have not got any news so far that any of our devotees are affected by it, so everybody is OK, we are also OK here, but we should be more careful. Always be careful. The government here has declared today that they are going to search some places and test everybody in the areas where coronavirus is spreading—if your test comes back negative, you will be quarantined for ten days, and if your test comes back positive, then it will be even stricter, then treatment is necessary. So, we must be careful. If you have to go to the market, wear a mask, keep social distance, and when you come back home, clean your hands. Always keep your hands clean—use hand sanitiser from time to time, wear a mask, wear gloves. It is necessary to do this. We must take proper care. This is my request to everybody all over the world. If you have to go out, go and come back quickly to your house and clean your hands. Take proper care of yourself. This virus can attack quickly and it spreads very quickly."

Unthinkable Situation
"Today is our Gurudev's disappearance tithi. Actually, never in my life did I expect that this day could come. When this tithi is coming, I always try to stay alone, but Gurudev gave me service to take care of you all, then how can I be cruel and stay alone?"

The Worst Day
"Today, my Gurupadpadma Om Vishnupad Srila Bhakti Sundar Govinda Dev-Goswami Maharaj's tenth disappearance festival, tirobhav-tithi. I had never thought that this day when Gurudev leaves would come in my life one day. I lost the dearest personality in my life on this day..."

Disappearance Festival of Om Vishnupad Paramahamsa

Srila Bhakti Sundar Govinda Dev-Goswami Maharaj

govindabhidham ujjvalam vara-tanum bhakty anvitam-sundaram

I offer my obeisance unto he who perfectly fulfils his Gurudev's most cherished desires; who is fully adorned with the blessings of his Gurudev’s associates; who is expert in all aspects of Vedic knowledge, both conceivable and inconceivable; who is the pre-eminent follower of Srila Rupa Goswami Prabhu's line; who is known as 'Govinda'—Srila Bhakti Sundar Govinda Dev-Goswami Maharaj; whose beautiful, effulgent, exalted form is infused with pure devotion; who is the Guru of the entire universe; and who is the giver of the seed of divine love for the Supreme Lord.

Dear respected Devotees, Friends and Well-Wishers,

We are offering obeisance at your holy lotus feet and on behalf of His Divine Grace Om Vishnupad Srila Bhakti Nirmal Acharya Maharaj humbly extend a letter of encouragement to observe the disappearance day of our most worshippable and beloved Om Vishnupad Jagad Guru Srila Bhakti Sundar Govinda Dev-Goswami Maharaj, which manifests on 5 April (Sunday) this year, in every branch of Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Math throughout the world.

Considering the ongoing difficult situation all over the world, many temples, centres, and devotees are currently constrained in their capacity to host large programmes, however it is good if this festival can still be observed within each temple, centre and heart of devotees according to their capacity. In India, His Divine Grace comments that the situation is quite difficult because of the recently enforced national lockdown, however all services at the temples are continuing properly, the devotees are in good health and spirit.

His Divine Grace has many times instructed on how to hold special programmes and taught it many times by his own example. Usually such programmes consist of: kirtans, lecture or reading of scriptures, arati, pushpanjali (offering of flowers to a photograph), and prasad-seva (cooking a special offering, offering it at the alter or to a photograph, and distributing it to devotees).

We hope all devotees find an opportunity to observe this holy day for the satisfaction of Sri Gurupadpadma keeping the divine Guidance on their heads: "Always sit amidst fire blazing on all four sides. This fire is Hari-katha, kirtan, service to the Lord, and service to the guru. You must progress in your practising life keeping the sacrificial fire of your service ablaze."

"Today is a very good day—the appearance day of Lord Ramachandra. There are different kinds of moods—santa, dasya, sakhya, vatsalya, madhura-rasa.

Sri Sri Prema-Vivarta
“Give up deceit and make your mind sincere. Serving Gaura and serving society at the same time is useless.”

      

Watch What Your Wish For
'People pray, 'I want wealth, I want knowledge, I want a beautiful wife, I want to be admired.' And what did Mahaprabhu teach? 'I do not want wealth, knowledge, beauty, or to be a poet. I only want causeless devotion to Your lotus feet.'

2) Consider Lord Siva and gods to be independent of Lord Krishna
3) Consider Guru to be an ordinary mortal man
4) Criticise scriptures
5) Interpret the Name with the help of a dictionary, etc.
6) Consider the Name imaginary.
7) Sin and chant to remove the sin.
8) Consider chanting equal to pious activities.

10) Remain attached to things, your body, etc.
