The time for the grand festival is approaching. With the devotees from outside the country already waiting in Kolkata Math for the eye-catching festival since long, those within the country slowly started coming to Kolkata. The event is really going to be big - the 89th Vyasa Puja of Revered Gurudev, the life and soul of many of His followers and well-wishers.This is the time devotees take a special opportunity to worship Him, to offer their heart feelings and probably the heart itself. His Divine Grace Srila Bhakti Ballabh Tirtha Goswami Maharaj, not unknown to many, has set the standards of Vaishnava conduct high by His own personal practice. His contribution to Gaudiya Vaishnava community is matchless. The meticulousness with which He performs each of the devotional activity has earned boundless affection and millions of hearts. He is the true acharya, the living legendary example of humility, the embodiment of mercy as per many senior as well as contemporary vaishnava saints.
Kolkata, I should say, is really fortunate this year for the event. Senior Vaishnavas from various organizations are expected by the 18th of this month. There will be arati, there will be floral offerings, there will be vocal offerings - time to get together and sing His glories in whatever capacity we are blessed with.
Following events are scheduled on the 19th April in the forenoon.
Kirtans by various devotees Harikatha by Srila Gurudev Arati and floral offerings to Srila Gurudev Release and screening of The Early life of Srila Gurudev Celebration kirtans We plan to live stream the event.
