Om Vishnupad
Srila Bhakti Raksak Sridhar Dev-Goswami Maharaj



of Srila B.S. Govinda Dev-Goswami Maharaj

An extensive account by Srila Bhakti Raksak Sridhar Dev-Goswami Maharaj published initially in Centenary Anthology and containing extensive recollections of His Divine Grace's childhood and youth, as well as the coming to the lotus feet of his Gurudev and later on starting Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Math:
"I was born at midnight, Saturday 10th October, 1895. Navami tithi under the same sign as Lord Ramchandra. Krishna-paksa (dark moon fortnight). I was the second child..."





The Search for Sri Krishna, Reality the Beautiful
This comprehensive and fundamental book is compiled from informal talks of His Divine Grace Srila Bhakti Raksak Sridhar Dev-Goswami Maharaj and was presented to his holy lotus hands on 30 October 1983. Since then, it has been republished several times. Here we are presenting the latest, fifth, edition published in 2000.
"Everyone is searching for rasa, pleasure. The status of rasa is the highest. As persons we have our subjective existence, but rasa, pleasure, has His supersubjective existence. He is a person. He is akhila rasamrta-murtih: the reservoir of all pleasure. He is Krishna. Rasa is Krishna. There cannot be rasa in any other place but Krishna. He is the fountainhead of all different types of rasa. So, by the nature of our constitution we have to search after Krishna."


Sri Guru and His Grace
A profound publication exploring the theme of Guru and disciple, compiled from the discourses of His Divine Grace Srila B.R. Sridhar Dev-Goswami Maharaj—presented here in English and Bengali languages.
"Guru is the divine messenger of immortal hope and joy in this mortal and miserable world. His advent is the most auspicious and happy event to the suffering animation and can be compared to the rising of the morning star that can guide the traveller lost in the desert. A gentle touch of Sri Guru's merciful hand can wipe away the incessant tears from all weeping eyes. Oh the day when this poor soul realises the causeless grace of Sri Gurudev."


The Golden Volcano Of Divine Love
This book has been compiled from the lectures of His Divine Grace Om Vishnupad Srila Bhakti Raksak Sridhar Dev-Goswami Maharaj and found a very special place in the heart of its author to the extent that His Divine Grace remarked it was his favourite English language publication. The text presented here is the second edition of the book.
"Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu has taught us that separation is the highest principle in divinity. Just as the most intense conception of ecstasy is association with Krishna, the most intense conception of pain is separation from Krishna. Yet the pain felt from Krishna's separation is far more intense than the ecstasy felt from His association. Sriman Mahaprabhu says, 'Can't you understand the painful situation you are in? Your senses must have all been destroyed? Otherwise you would have died from the pain of separation from Krishna. It is inconceivable. We belong to Him wholesale. He is all in all to us, but we can't see Him. We are forcibly separated from Him. How can we tolerate this?'"


Loving Search for the Lost Servant
The Loving Search for the Lost Servant has been compiled from talks given by His Divine Grace Srila Bhakti Raksak Sridhar Dev-Goswami Maharaj at Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Math on the banks of the sacred Ganges in Nabadwip Dham, India. The date of its manifestation is the 14th of March, 1987, the divine appearance day of Sri Chaitanya Maharaj. The text presented for online reading is as it is, without amendments or edits.
"The Lord's Loving Search for His Lost Servants: Great intensity is expressed here in a simple way. It is a mad search—an urgent campaign. With great earnestness Krsna comes to deliver His lost servants, to take us home. Once, as Krishna and the cows were returning from the Vrndavana forest at the end of the day, a boy had just attained spiritual emancipation and entered Vrndavana as a cowherd boy. Seeing His long lost servant, Krishna embraced him and both of them fainted in ecstasy. 'Why did you stay away? Why have you been living away from home for so long? How was it possible for you? How could you bear My separation? You left Me, and you have been passing lives after lives without Me? Still, I know what trouble you took to return to Me. You searched for Me everywhere, and went to beg from house to house, and you were chastised by many, ridiculed by many, and you shed tears for Me. I know all these things. I was with you. And now, after great trouble, you have again come back to Me.'"


Inner Fulfillment
An introductory book compiled from excerpts of informal discourses by His Divine Grace Srila Bhakti Raksak Sridhar Dev-Goswami Maharaj. The first printing dates back to June 1995. The book is presented here for online reading as it was published, without any amendments or edits.
"Our life is unfulfilled and we want fulfillment, there is no doubt. But, what type of fulfillment should we hanker for and search after? We know we are in want, and at the same time we yearn to remove our want and obtain satisfaction. No doubt this is so for everyone. But how to make progress from unfulfilled life towards fulfillment?"


Centenary Anthology
Published first on 18 October 1995 as an offering in honour of the Centenary Anniversary of Srila B.R. Sridhar Dev-Goswami Maharaj's divine appearance an the conclusion of a year-long festival in the Mission, this book is a beautiful compilation of jewel articles on the history and the conceptual foundation of Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Math.
"We do not like to live in this material world that is so nasty. We are trying to realise how to live in the land of the soul. We are soul and we should live there. Our ambition of life is the higher plane of Krishna. We want to live in a country where the general insult and disregard is absent. We can live an honourable life there."


Sri Sri Prema Dhama Deva Stotram
A unique compilation of Sanskrit verses that contain most Pastimes of Sri Krishna Chaitanya Mahaprabhu, written by Om Vishnupad Srila Bhakti Raksak Sridhar Dev-Goswami Maharaj. Sri Sri Prema Dhama Deva Stotram has found exceptional appreciation in the hearts of the Vaishnav community worldwide. These verses are also sung every evening (10 each day, starting from Saturday) at Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Math and its affiliate centers.
"I offer my respects unto Sri Gaurangadev, who rose like a golden moon in Sri Mayapura in 1407 Sakabda, revealed the Pastime of accepting the garments of the renounced order, sannyas, in 1431 Sakabda in order to benedict the entire material universe, and disappeared beyond the ordinary vision of the people of this world in 1455 Sakabda. I offer my obeisances to that beautiful Golden Lord, Gaurangasundar, the divine form of Krishna prema."






Sri Sri Dayita Dasa Dasakam
A poem composed by Srila Bhakti Raksak Sridhar Dev-Goswami Maharaj after the disappearance of his Divine Master Bhagavan Srila Bhakti Siddhanta Saraswati Thakur Prabhupad: "O Dina-nayana, wherever that great soul may be, please quickly take this servitor there."


The All-Auspicious Name of Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Math
Srila B.R. Sridhar Dev-Goswami Maharaj expounds on the profundity of the Mission's name.


A Fugitive's Plea
"What have I not done to carry out the orders of these enemies living within me? Now I am disgusted, my Lord. I do not know why, how, but I was able to avoid their vigilant eyes and I have now run to You! Please give me some engagement!"


Ma Muncha-Pancha-Dasakam
A heart-felt poem composed by His Divine Grace Srila Bhakti Raksak Sridhar Dev-Goswami Maharaj: "Don't abandon me. Deliver this servant. O Krishna! O ocean of mercy for the destitute! Helplessly subjugated by material nature, I have fallen within this terrible world."


Sri Nimai Sannyas
"Vishvambhar, the son of Jagannath Mishra, who resides in Nabadwip, Sachi's Nimai, oh! He has taken sannyas."


Service to Gaura-Gadadhar
"Is worship of Gaura-Gadadhar a completely madhurya conception? Yes, and more than that. This worship is rather related to separation, or union in separation. Gadadhar Pandit represented Radharani's bhava, but though he is the possessor of that wealth, it was taken up by Mahaprabhu, so he stood empty."
