This Monday 1st is Sri Gaurasundar and Sri Giridhari’s installation anniversary festival at Sri Govinda Dham from 10am-4pm. Go to News Section for more info.
Sri Govinda Dham is an ashram and community centre spiritually affiliated with Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Math, Nabadwip, India. It is a place of shelter for spiritual seekers and aspirants. Our presiding deities are Sri Sri Guru-Gaurasundar-Giridharijiu who were installed by our beloved Srila Gurudeva, Srila Bhakti Sundar Govinda Dev-Goswami Maharaj on 1st January 1997. The Dham is a place of service to the Lord and together the community aspires after the ideals and teachings of our Guru Parampara, our spiritual lineage.
Primary among these teachings is to constantly chant the Lord’s Holy Names, especially in the form of the Hare Krishna Mahamantra, Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare. We practice humility, tolerance, patience, and giving all respect to others while encouraging each other on the spiritual path.
May that Lord of the cows be satisfied by us. Who is Indra when compared to Krishna? Krishna is the master of Indra. And yet He has appeared as the master of cows; the Supreme Absolute Truth has accepted a simple position as the keeper of cows. Superficially, He is a mere cowherd boy. But let that cowherd boy, who holds within Him the power of controlling the whole universe, be satisfied with us. We want to worship that Lord who has taken the humble position of the king of the cows.Nanda Maharaj
