All Glories to Sri Guru and Sri Gauranga.
A few months back (month of June 2012 – prior to Jagannatha Puri Rathayatra) Sripad Bhakti Nandan Narayan Maharaja came to our Siliguri center and spent a couple of weeks with devotees at our Siliguri center. During his stay Maharaja gave much affection and encouragements to devotees at Siliguri. All the local devotees of Siliguri like Maharaja’s simplicity very much and wanted him to stay at Siliguri center permanently. However, due to his busy preaching schedule Maharaja could not stay for longer time at Siliguri. After finishing Kartik parikrama 2012, Maharaja was in tirtha at Sri Jagannatha Puri Dham. Maharaja had a plan to visit Siliguri center after finishing his tirtha at Sri Jagannatha Puri Dham. However, by the will of divine Sripad Narayan Maharaja left his body at Sri Jagannatha Puri Dham on 5th December 2012. Hearing the news of Maharaja’s sudden departure, devotees are feeling much separation. In remembrance of Sripad Narayan Maharaja, on 7th December 2012 we organized a Vaisnava-Seva festival at Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Math, Siliguri, WB, India. We are attaching a few photos of the festival.
