All Glories to Sri Guru and Sri Gauranga!
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

Sri Govardhan Puja
~
Monday, November 4, 2013

6:00 pm in Santa Cruz
5:30 pm in San Jose


Sriman Mahaprabhu gave Sri Sri  Giriraj-jiu to Sri Raghunath Das Goswami so that Sri Das Goswami could worship His Lordship knowing Him to be non-different from Krishna.
The devotees of Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Math worship Sri Sri Giriraj-jiu in a deep mood of devotion in remembrance of Sri Raghunath Das Goswami.
All glories to Sri Giri Govardhan which is the abode of divine rasa and the shelter of Sri Rupa, Sanatan, Jiva and Raghunath Goswamis.
The beauty of the arati of Sri Giriraj-jiu which is rare and precious is being seen by Lord Indra, Narada Muni, Lord Shiva, Sukadev Goswami and all the great personalities.
Sri Sri Giriraj-jiu is eternally manifested as both the worshipable Lord and the servitor Lord. This fallen servant sees the arati of Sri Giriraj-jiu with great ecstasy.

–From Sri Sri Giriraj-Govardhan Arati by
Srila Bhakti Sundar Govinda Dev-Goswami Maharaj

"I offer my respectful obeisances unto His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupad, who is very dear to Lord Krishna, having taken shelter at His lotus feet.

Our respectful obeisances are unto you, O spiritual master, servant of Bhaktisiddhanta Saraswati Goswami. You are kindly preaching the message of Lord Chaitanya and delivering the Western countries, which are filled with impersonalism and voidism."
