Also available as an iCal format Vaisnava Calendar, for Macintosh computers running System X, and PC's using the free 'Sunbird' download, for automatic notification of special events worldwide as well as Ekadasi dates followed in Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Math, Nabadwip.
Made by Sadhu Priya Prabhu of Australia.

Please consult your local centre for Ekadasi dates in your area.
All dates and times listed here are calculated for Kolkata, India, as referred to at Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Math, Sri Nabadwip Dham.
During his 21st World Tour, Srila Bhakti Sundar Govinda Dev-Goswami Maharaj instructed that throughout the world the devotees will follow this calendar for all dates except for Ekadasis and their associated paran (break fast) times which may be calculated locally according to the lunar calendar. In this way the days of Appearance, Disappearance, and other Pastimes of the Lord and His great devotees will be observed on the actual day they took place in India, rather than according to the technical local calculation of the 'tithi' (lunar day) which often had devotees observing, for example, the Appearance of Mahaprabhu a day before He actually appeared here in Nabadwip.
This calendar is based on the translation of the Bengali Vaisnava Calendar, "Sri Gaudiya Parvva Talika," compiled by Sriyukta Dibyendu Bhattacharya, M.Sc., B.T., Jyotibhushan, Headmaster.
Translated to English by Sripad Bhakti Kamal Tyagi Maharaj.

NOTE: Srila Gurudev Srila Govinda Maharaj's Disappearance Day is the 2nd dvadasi after Sri Gaura Purnima. So, within a day (because of the particular way our calendar is calculated), we can understand his Disappearance Festival will be on Saturday 12 April 2014. The precise date will be confirmed with the publication of the new 2014-2015 Calendar just before Sri Gaura-Purnima.


Kindly note that the next "Gaudiya Festival Dates" published from Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Math will only be available around Sri Gaura-Purnima, 2014.
