In Honour of His Holiness
Sripad Bhakti Chandan Parvat Maharaj

 

বৈষ্ণবের গুণ-গান করিলে জীবের ত্রাণ
শুনিয়াছি সাধুগুরুমুখে

vaisnavera guna-gana karile jivera trana
suniyachhi sadhu-guru-mukhe

"Singing the glories of the Vaishnavs rescues and protects the jiva soul. I heard this from the mouth of sadhus and my Guru."

Sripad Bhakti Chandan Parvat Maharaj left his body on 14 June 2019.

In 1997, His Holiness wrote the following Sri Vyasa Puja offering in honour of Srila B.R. Sridhar Dev-Goswami Maharaj's holy appearance day revealing some facts of his coming to Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Math:

om anjana timirandhasya jnananjana-salakaya
chaksur unmilitam yena tasmai sri-gurave namah

devam divya-tanum suchhanda-vadanam-balarka-chelanchitam
sandrananda-puram sad-eka-varanam vairagya-vidyambudhim
sri siddhanta-nidhim subhakti-lasitam sarasvatanam varam
vande tam subhadam mad-eka-saranam nyasisvaram sridharam

tvam nah sandarsito dhatra
dustaram nistitir satam
kalim sattva-haram pumsam
karna-dhara ivarnavam

"We think that we have met Your Goodness by the will of providence, just so that we may accept you as captain of the ship for those who desire to cross the difficult ocean of Kali, which deteriorates all the good qualities of a human being." [S.B. 1.1.22]

Dearest Param Guru Maharaj,

On this auspicious day, the 102nd anniversary of your Divine Advent, I thank my lucky stars to be celebrating it here at your Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Math.

During this lifetime I could not come to your lotus feet directly but, by the mercy of your servitors, I came in contact with that lofty ideal for which I had searched all my life. That pure and subtle conception which was presented in The Search for Sri Krishna - Reality the Beautiful was like a shining beacon amidst the dangerous reefs of materialistic literature and the treacherous whirlpools of the Mayavadi philosophies in which I had previously searched for life's answers.

A few months after you had left for your eternal lila I was able to come to your Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Math and take shelter at the lotus feet of your dearmost beloved disciple, Om Visnupad Sri Srila Bhakti Sundar Govinda Dev Goswami Maharaj. At that time I felt great sadness and separation from you but, some few years later, I came to understand that that which I had found in you was also flowing, and overflowing, in my beloved and most merciful spiritual master, Sri Srila B.S. Govinda Maharaj.

The exalted devotees will, no doubt, sing extensively of your inexhaustible glories and good qualities which even Anantashesh could not fully describe, but I simply thank you for that sweet, full fruition of your mercy, my Guru Deva, whose humility, mercy, tolerance, and full spiritual qualifications make him the perfect Successor-Acharya of a Perfect Devotee of our Lord.

Praying for Your Servitor's eternal service,

Swami Bhakti Chandan Parvat

 


 

"Mahaprabhu went to the room where the body of Srivas Pandit's son was kept and spoke to the boy, 'Why have you left us? Why have you left Srivas Pandit?' The boy answered, 'My time has come... I had some connection with Srivas Pandit, but now that connection has finished. You are calling me, so I am going to You...'"
