Sri Nabadwip Dham: The Festival Is Coming (Photographs)
The flood of arrivals has subsided and now the central Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Math at Sri Nabadwip Dham is swarming with devotees and guests from all over the world and India. The programmes and aratis are all well-attended, joyful and smooth, and everyone is eagerly awaiting the first day of the parikrama.

Sri Ekadashi Guidance
Guidelines on how to observe and honour this holy day: Ekadashi takes an indispensible part in the life of a sincere practitioner. At Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Math, Ekadashi and paran are observed with affection and without fail according to the dates given in the Calendar.

 

From Sri Nabadwip Dham:
Yesterday in the evening, with pride and joy, His Divine Grace Srila Bhakti Nirmal Acharya Maharaj announced that two much-awaited books had been added to the online book store and the book stall here in Sri Nabadwip Dham: Sri Nabadwip Dham Mahatmya by Srila Bhakti Vinod Thakur and Sri Sri Prema-Vivarta by Sri Jagadananda Pandit. His Divine Grace encourages everyone to purchase these two books and keep in heart what is contained therein.
4:30 p.m. update: most of the devotees have returned to the Math, while the healthier and more dedicated ones continued carrying the banner of Sri Chaitanya Saraswat on to Sri Simantadwip and Sri Rudradwip. The Parikrama went very smoothly and harmoniously, with lots of kirtans and Harikatha in Bengali, English, and Spanish. The photographs will follow shortly.

Sri Nabadwip Dham Parikrama: Day One (Photographs, 12 Mb)
The first day of the annual Sri Nabadwip Dham Parikrama is the longest as it covers three of the nine islands of Sri Nabadwip (Antardwip, Simantadwip, and Rudradwip) and the most auspicious as it always falls on Amalaki Ekadashi and takes the pilgrims to the very heart of Sri Gauda Mandal—the appearance place of Sriman Mahaprabhu.

Ye Anila Prema-Dhana Karuna Prachura (Sung on disappearance days of Vaishnavs)
"Where has Advaita Acharya, the Lord who mercifully brought the wealth of divine love to this world, gone? I will break my head on a rock, I will enter into fire—where shall I go to reach the reservoir of all qualities, Sri Gauranga?"

I offer my obeisances to that beautiful Golden Lord, Gaurangasundar, the divine form of Krishna prema."

Morning, noon, and evening programmes led by His Divine Grace Srila Bhakti Nirmal Acharya Maharaj and the assembled holy Vaishnavs. His Divine Grace remarked, "I am often asked where I get so much energy from. I am not a yogi, I do not have some siddhi—I have energy because I do not use it for any other purpose except service."

 

From Sri Nabadwip Dham:
Starting from the early morning of Jagannath Mishra's Anandotsav, the devotees started leaving the Math, and by today almost all Indian pilgrim devotees have left. The devotees staying behind at the Math are busy cleaning and setting everything in place, and regaining strength after the hectic festival days.
His Divine Grace Srila Bhakti Nirmal Acharya Maharaj commented last night that the festival went very peacefully and happily without any problems, arguments, or shortage of prasadam. He said that by the grace of Gurudev he could not only manage all days of the Parikrama, but also both morning and evening classes at the pandal.

Sarvasva Tomara
Charane Sapiya
'If you always recite this song, your ego will not come, you will not think you are a Vaishnav. You will take remnants of the Vaishnavs, prasad, and you will think always you are a fallen soul, then you will never get proud, 'Oh, I am taking the remnants!' Humility, dainyata will come.'

 

Sri Sri Prema-Vivarta
“When souls become averse to Krishna and desire enjoyment, nearby Maya seizes them.”

You must sacrifice your life and renounce all enjoyment of material things
for others' benefit.
