Sri Gurupadpadma Visits Tarakeshwar
6-7 November, 2020
Tarakeshwar, West Bengal
bhakter nirmala-nirjharasya nibhrtam samraksakam sadaram
vande sri-gurudevam anata-sira acharya-varyam nijam
"I bow my head in eternal obeisance to my Gurudev, the best of acharyas,
Srila Bhakti Nirmal Acharya Maharaj. He is the ever vigilant, stalwart
guardian of the current of pure devotion whose highest form flows from our
most worshippable Sri Rupanuga Guru-varga in their exclusive dedication to
Mahabhav, Srimati Radharani."
vaisnavera pada-dhuli tahe mora snana-keli
tarpana mora vaisnavera nama
vaisnavera uchchhista tahe mora mano-nistha
vaisnavera namete ullasa
"The feet dust of the Vaishnavs is where I sport and take bath, Vaishnavs'
name is the water oblation. My mind is intently fixed upon the remnants of
Vaishnavs, and I am elated at the name of Vaishnavs."
gangara-parasa ha-ile paschate pavana
darsane pavitra kara—ei tomara guna
"If the Ganges touches someone, they are purified some time later; but one
becomes purified just by seeing you, O Vaishnava Thakur. Such is your power."
The next day His Divine Grace mercifully performs a yajna and teaches Abhay Charan Prabhu, the pujari at the temple (pictured on the left).
A booklet recently prepared by His Divine Grace and published from Sri
Chaitanya Saraswat Math containing the rules and procedures related to
conduct of sraddha ceremonies for departed Vaishnavs.
