What is Gurudeva doing? He is giving service to Krishna. For the satisfaction of Krishna he gives us a rope to rescue us, and he takes us as a flower-offering
to the lotus feet of Krishna.
— Srila Bhakti Sundar Govinda Maharaj
Dear devotees and friends of the Ashram,
Please join the devotees on Monday, October 28th in Santa Cruz and San Jose to observe the Divine Appearance Day of the Founder President Acharya of Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Math, Om Vishnupad Sri Srila Bhakti Rakshak Sridhar Dev-Goswami Maharaj.
In Santa Cruz we will hear from Srila Bhakti Pavan Janardan Maharaj, who served Srila Sridhar Maharaj personally in India, and in San Jose, we will hear directly from Srila Bhakti Sudhir Goswami Maharaj via skype. He spent many years at the lotus feet of His Divine Grace and published the first books in English compiled from talks by Srila Sridhar Maharaj, beginning with Search for Sri Krishna, Reality the Beautiful; Sri Guru and His Grace; Golden Volcano; and Loving Search for the Lost Servant.
Take this opportunity to hear the glories of a great Vaishnava saint and gladden your heart.
Yours in the Lord's service,

Srila Bhakti Sundar Govinda Dev-Goswami Maharaj composed Srila Guru Maharaj's pranam-mantra:
devam divya-tanum suchanda-vadanam
vande tam subhadam mad-eka-saranam
"I fall at the feet of Srila Sridhar Dev, who with charming expression sings his songs of sweet nectar. Dressed in fine garments like the newly-risen sun, he is the true saint, the devotees have chosen. His detachment and knowledge are just like an ocean, the treasure-house of complete, perfect conclusions. Radiant in pastimes of loving devotion, the abode of pure ecstasy, bestower of good fortune; foremost true follower of Srila Bhakti Siddhanta, foremost great general of the whole renounced order, my lord and my master, my only shelter, I worship his feet, Srila Sridhar Dev."
