All Glories to Sri Guru and Sri Gauranga!
Dear devotees and friends of the Ashram,

I am very excited to announce that on Monday the 3rd of February in Santa Cruz there will be a special chance to honor Srila Bhakti Pavan Janardan Maharaj, the President Sevaite Acharya of the Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Seva Ashram in Santa Cruz on his Vyasapuja day. Whether you are Maharaj's long time associate and friend or just recently accepted Harinam initiation from him, please join the celebration. It is very nourishing to hear and speak about the great qualities of Vaishnavas but Srila Janardan Maharaj, who is so often friendly and playful, is reluctant to accept glorification. It is therefore very exciting that he has agreed to let us honor him formally on this day.

Yours in the Lord's service,

Sushila devi dasi

PS In Santa Cruz there will be harinam sankirtan on Pacific Avenue this Sunday after the feast and a program at the Louden Nelson Center on Friday the 7th at 7 pm. Call the temple at 462-4712 for details.

       Whether or not you can attend the program in Santa Cruz, now is always a good time for krishna katha and hearing Sri Chaitanya Charitamrita with Janardan Maharaj's occasional comments and stories is a truly amazing way to spiritualize one's day. I have no qualification to say something like that, but many senior devotees and even other Acharyas including Srila Ashram Maharaj and Srila Avadhut Maharaj say so. In the past Sripad Vaishnav Maharaj and Sripad Siddhanti Maharaj loved the morning classes as well. If you can connect a USB drive in your car or play MP3 CDs, you can download the classes here and listen while you drive. Just listening to a few verses a day of gaudiya vaishnava siddhanta and gaura lila  is wonderful, what to speak of a chapter a day.
