Saranagati: Bhajana-Lalasa, Hankering for Service (Song 7)
"Vaisnava thakura dayara sagara: O Vaisnav Thakur! O Ocean of Mercy! Please be merciful to this servant. Give me the shade of your feet and purify me. I clasp hold of your feet. Alone I do not have the ability to properly chant the Lord's Name. Please mercifully give me a drop of faith; give me the wealth of Krishna's Name."

"Nira-dharma-gata, jahnavi-salile: The body of a devotee is always supramundane. Although one may see faults within the inborn nature or body of a devotee, a devotee is never mundane. Your devotees are Your wealth. May they bestow mercy upon me; then my destiny will lead me towards You, and I will attain the shade of Your feet."

 


In honour of Sripad Rishabdev Prabhu:

Sripad Rishabdev Prabhu: A Miracle Personality
His Divine Grace Om Vishnupad Jagad-Guru Srila Bhakti Sundar Govinda Dev-Goswami Maharaj is remembering the character and disappearance of Sripad Rishabdev Prabhu: "I have seen so many miracles in my life, and Rishabdev Prabhu is also one kind of a miracle personality. If you see what your scriptures say (they show so many rules and regulations) and if you see Rishabdev Prabhu's case, you will not be able to harmonise it."

Sripad Rishabdev Prabhu's Message
"Dive deep, do not be satisfied with the surface understanding. It is necessary for us to go to the core, and this is beyond all visual, mental, and objective understanding... I have no hope, or even necessity, to know Krishna, but if I can serve guru or the servant of the guru, then I feel this is the perfection."

Saranagati: Bhajana-Lalasa, Hankering for Service (Song 2)
"Arthera sanchaye, visaya-prayase: I have remained immersed in the defects, thus devotion to You has remained far away from me. Only malice towards others, pride, desire for worldly prestige, and insincerity flourish within my heart."

In Honour of Sripad Bhakti Chandan Parvat Maharaj
(45 photographs, 3 Mb)
Sripad Parvat Maharaj was never in the foreground—he never showed to be a great devotee, a great writer, a great speaker, a great singer, or a great anything, but what he did show to this world, besides being adorned with many beautiful devotional qualities, is that whenever and whatever service or order came from his Guru and holy Vaishnavs, he placed it on his head and followed it with heart and soul, with full dedication (along with as a smile, and often a witty joke). For our own purification, bowing down at his holy feet, we are humbly presenting a selection of photographs in the auspicious memory of His Holiness.

 

All glory to Sri Guru and Sri Gauranga

Dear Devotees, Friends, and Well-Wishers,

Please accept my humble obeisance.

With a very saddened heart, I am writing to give the news that our dear and worshippable Sripad Bhakti Chandan Parvat Maharaj left his body today (14 June 2019) early in the morning.

Sripad Bhakti Chandan Parvat Maharaj's service to the Mission and humble, kind-hearted mood is well known to the devotees worldwide. Every year, up until his health deteriorated and did not allow him to come, he would also come here to Kolkata and, tirelessly, single-handedly and very happily roaming the streets and lanes of Kolkata, collect for Sri Gaura Purnima festival, and afterwards assist the festival itself in various ways. We can never forget his affection and service. Srila Gurupadpadma, Om Vishnupad Srila Bhakti Sundar Govinda Dev-Goswami Maharaj, said, "Dhrstam dhrstam punar api punas chandanam charu-gandham: the more you rub chandan, the more auspicious fragrance it emanates." Similarly, we must admit that the more we remember the glories of Sripad Bhakti Chandan Parvat Maharaj, the more auspiciousness will come to our lives.

I pray that, remembering Sripad B.Ch. Parvat Maharaj's mood and service, devotees will fill the void created by his disappearance from our vision and try to serve the Mission of Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Math with ever stronger dedication.

Your faithful servant,

Swami B. N. Acharya

From Sri Guru and His Grace:
"Srila Baladev Vidyabhusan's contribution to the sampradaya is no less important than that of the other great stalwarts in the line. Baladev Vidyabhusan was very akin to the Madhva sampradaya, but when he came in connection with Visvanath Chakravarti Thakur, he showed great interest in Gaudiya–Vaisnavism. He has also commented on the Srimad Bhagavatam and Jiva Goswami's Sat-sandarbha, and that enlightened thought is a valuable contribution to our sampradaya. We cannot dismiss him, he is our Guru."
