Glory of the Holy Name and Ten Offences
The first and foremost booklet that Sri Gurudev gives to all disciples at the time of initiation with the words, "Take this book and memorise it. Take this book also, the ten offences of the Holy Name are written in it. Many people chant the Holy Name, but they do not get the result because they make offences. Mainly there are ten offences, they are written in this book. Read what they are, memorise them, and you must avoid these ten offences. If you chant without offences, you will get the result quickly."


Srimad Bhagavad-Gita
The first Bengali edition of Srimad Bhagavad-gita published by Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Math appeared in 1961. The English translation was later prepared and published by Svarupananda Prabhu (Sripad Bhakti Ananda Sagar Maharaj). The latest and current edition that we are presenting here for online reading was published in 2006 by Svarupananda Prabhu and was received very happily by Srila B.S. Govinda Dev-Goswami Maharaj.
"The Wisdom of the Gita is so beautiful. Everything needed to be known, for everyone, is found there. This is why the Gita is preached throughout the world. The elevated saintly persons declare that Sri Gita is the entry standard for spiritual life. If one can first properly appreciate the Gita, then he can aspire for a higher position; it is like passing the entrance examination before entering college. Everybody's primary benefit is to be found, therefore, in the Gita."


Sri Sri Prema-Vivarta
Published in March 2015, this book has been prepared at the express request of Om Visnupad Srila Bhakti Nirmal Acharya Maharaj. It is his desire that Srila Jagadananda Pandit's bright and concise instructions guide devotees in their practice and preaching.
"Serve Gora! Serve Gora! Serve Gora! Brother, there is no Guru in this world other than Gora. If you want to serve Gora, make your heart sincere. Give up deceit and serve Gora's feet. Gora knows your thoughts, so how will you cheat Him? When you are sincere, you will understand Gora's teachings. If you go to satisfy the minds of others, you will only cheat yourself. Gora knows your thoughts, so how will you hide your heart from Him? Gora says, 'Behave like Me and follow My instructions if you want good fortune. ...The Name is all-powerful, grants all desired ends, and naturally makes the world joyful. The Name is the shelter of the shelterless, the saviour of the fallen. The Name should be served everywhere and always. The Name gives all types of liberation, entrance into the spiritual world, and love for the Lord."


Sri Brahma-Samhita
Printed and offered to the Lotus Hands of His Divine Grace Srila Bhakti Sundar Govinda Dev-Goswami Maharaj on 15th May, 1992, the Holy Appearance Day of the Supreme Lord Sri Sri Nrsimhadev, on the year-long Golden Jubilee Festival of Nabadwip Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Math 1991-1992, this holy book is not presented here for online reading. The text is presented as it was originally published, without amendments or edits.
"When we attain the Mercy of the Supreme Lord by faithfully following the four-headed Lord Brahma, and when we become fit recipients of the Supreme Lord's Grace as a result of singing with a pure heart the Divine Songs of His unending Glories, at that moment we shall know the genuine fruition of our reading, recitation or singing of Brahma-samhita."


Archan Kan (Worship Manual, PDF)
The booklet contains basic guidelines on Deity worship, including mainly the appropriate mantras recited during the various aspects of Deity worship. This book is mostly meant for Deity worship at the temples, while household services can be observed with less stricter procedure (You can read more about the practice guidelines in the Daily Practice section of the website).
