Declaration of the Spiritual Succession
of Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Math
by His Divine Grace
Srila Bhakti Sundar Govinda Dev-Goswami Maharaj
Successor Sevaite-President-Acharya of Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Math
"The Next Acharya"
Spoken on 4 December 2009
He, (Bhakti Nirmal Acharya Maharaj), is highly qualified and I have chosen
him as next Acharya of this Math. All of you should unitedly proceed under
his guidance, serve under him faithfully and love him. His love for the Math
is his greatest quality. That the Math should not lose even one inch of its
land, even one inch of its property—he is continuously working towards
this end. I am now asking him to speak Hari-katha as my representative...
[Following Srila Acharya Maharaj's speech Srila Govinda Maharaj continued:]
Math secretary, Math manager, future Math Acharya, Sripad Bhakti Nirmal
Acharya Maharaj ki jay! After me, all of you should continue as his
followers. Everyone makes mistakes, but I very rarely see anyone with a
sincere, heartfelt service mood like him. The type of profound vision and
attentive care he has for every matter cannot be seen anywhere. I pray the
Lord will bring him all goodness and auspiciousness.

a miraculous man whose energy is over-flooding for the service to our
society. He is my very dear friend, very dear disciple, very dear worker,
everything. My blessings to him. He is doing, attending to all of my own
service duties, and I am so happy."

Spoken on 13 September 2008
"As per direction of Srila Guru Maharaj, the members of Sri Chaitanya
Saraswat Math will be those who are under the guidance of the
Sevaite-President of Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Math. If somebody cannot
understand, cannot proceed with help, affection, and love to Sripad Acharya
Maharaj, they must not disturb the Mission's affairs and must get out.
"At present I see that Sripad Acharya Maharaj is the fittest person as the
Sevaite-President-Acharya. So, this is my order. My well-wishes and my
affection and love are with Sripad Acharya Maharaj. He is fully dedicated to
the Mission and to Sri Sri Guru Gauranga Gandharva Govindasundar, he wants to
do all the good things for the Math. So, to stay in the Math everyone must
support him. This is my desire, my order, and my wish.
"Everyone follows him, but not everyone follows him with
affection—everyone must respect him as the Math Acharya and help him.
Those who cannot accept him must get out. This is not only my desire, even
Srila Guru Maharaj's desire is like that. In this way the Mission will
