Dear Godbrothers and Godsisters, Devotees and Friends,

The 81st Appearance Day Festival (80th Appearance Anniversary) of the most worshipable Acharyya, His Divine Grace Om Visnupad Sri Srila Bhakti Sundar Govinda Dev-Goswami Maharaj, will be celebrated here on Friday 4th December 2009. His Divine Grace is the dearmost beloved disciple and associate of the Emperor of Sannyasi Kings, His Divine Grace Om Visnupad Sri Srila Bhakti Raksak Sridhar Dev-Goswami Maharaj, who during his own manifest lifetime installed Srila Bhakti Sundar Govinda Dev-Goswami Maharaj on his exalted throne as the Sevaite-President-Acharyya of the world-renowned institution, Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Math, along with its Spiritually Affiliated Centres and Branches worldwide.

This year we, the devotees of the Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Math, have arranged from the 3rd to 7th December '09 a grand festival accompanied by Kirttan, special worship, glorification, revered offerings to the Temple Deities Sri Sri Guru Gauranga Gandharvva Govindasundar Giridhari Laksmi Varahadev and Gopaljiu, along with respectful Puja offerings unto the lotus feet of His Divine Grace and the distribution of Maha-Prasadam here at Sri Math, and at Sripat Bamunpara (his holy Appearance Place) and at our Temples in Kolkata.

We are very pleased to announce that His Divine Grace Srila Govinda Maharaj has repeatedly expressed his desire to be in Nabadwip this year for this occasion, health permitting.

We will be pleased to have the kind company and participation of you and your friends to enhance this great devotional festival.
