Sri Sri Guru Gaurangau jayatah

First National Meeting of Devotees
of Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Math - Brazil

by Bhuvan Mohan Das

August 2 and 3, 2003 —
For the pleasure of our Divine Master Srila Gurudev, Srila Bhakti Sundar Govinda Dev-Goswami Maharaj, His Holiness Sripad Bhakti Vijay Trivikram Maharaj and the always inspired and enthusiastic Rohini Shakti Didi hosted the First National Meeting of devotees of our Brazilian family. The programme was held at Srila Gurudev's beautiful Ashram, the Sri Chaitanya Sridhar Govinda Seva Ashram in the mountains of Campos de Jordao, in Sao Paulo.

About fifty devotees came from all around the country, making the meeting a very happy event enlightened by Sripad Trivikram Maharaj's preaching the unending glories of Srila Gurudev. The days included new initiations on behalf of Srila Gurudev, and everyone engaged in lots of intense Kirtan, reading the holy Scriptures, and very nice Prasadam feasts.

For two days, the devotees had the opportunity to be together in the mood of serving and glorifying our Divine Master and Sri Gauranga Sundar, Gurudev's '9 year old' Deity in Brazil.

All Brazilian devotees are now waiting for the next meeting to take place, in 2004. We all pray that our dearmost Srila Bhakti Sundar Govinda Dev-Goswami Maharaj will accept the devotees' heartfelt invitation to be with us on that occasion, along with his most intimate and exalted servitors.
