All glories to Sri Guru and Gauranga
Welcome to the Home Page of
The Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Math
At the time of its humble beginning, Srila Bhakti Rakshak
Sridhar Maharaj wrote the following verse,
predicting the future greatness of the Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Math:
srimac-caitanya-sarasvata-mathavara udgita-kirtir jaya-srim
"On the banks of the Ganges in Koladwip, Navadwip, the Sri
Chaitanya Saraswat Math shines resplendent. The flag flies high, singing the
Math's glories to the world. There the residents sing the glories of Lord
Gauranga and aspire to serve Sri Sri Radha Govinda in the line of Srila Rupa
bibhrat sambhati ganga-tata-nikata-navadvipa-koladri-raje
yatra sri-gaura-sarasvata-mata-nirata gaura-gatha grnanti
Located in the holy land of Navadwip, in West Bengal, India,
the Temple of Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Math was founded in 1941 by Srila Bhakti
Rakshak Sridhar Dev-Goswami Maharaj.
Situated about seventy-five miles north of Calcutta, the land
of Navadwip is famous for being the place of the Appearance and Pastimes of
Lord Chaitanya Mahaprabhu. The word Saraswat
refers to the spiritual line and followers of Srila Bhakti Siddhanta Saraswati
Thakur, the Spiritual Master of Srila Sridhar Maharaj and Srila A.C.
Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupad.
Srila Sridhar Maharaj has stated: "Here in Navadwip, we
find a happy place where the Absolute is the most generous in His benevolence.
When the Absolute is distributing Himself, He becomes Sri Chaitanya-dev. And
that Sri Chaitanya-dev, in the highest stage of His mercy, is found here."
