Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakur’s appearance day

Dear devotees, Hare Krishna!

All glories to Sri Navadvipa dhama, the eternal abode of the Lord!

Yesterday, 28th september 2012 was the most auspicious day of  Srila Sacidananda Bhaktivinoda Thakur’s appearance. We were very happy to launch this website to please His Divine Grace. We hope that he can bless us with the strength and necessary  intelligence to develop our eternal relationship with the Lord Krishna.

We would like to thank the following people for their priceless service to Navadvipa Dhama and Navadvipa Mandala Parikrama:

First of all our heartfelt thanks are going to Sri Srimad Jayapataka Swami for all his restless endeavors and purity to develop Gauda Mandala bhumi under Srila Prabhupada’s instructions. In his message, he’s explained about how was Srila Prabhupada’s desire to see Navadvipa Dhama been developed and also that this is an honor for us to do this service.  He is always involved in Navadvipa Mandala Parikrama, he comes for preaching, he is concerned about the welfare of the devotees who are performing Parikrama, and he is a source of inspiration for everyone.

Then we would like to show our gratitude to HH Bhakti Purusottama Swami who is a big preacher of the glories of Navadvipa Dhama, everywhere he goes! He is Parikrama’s director and many improvements along these years that we have seen in the Parikrama, comes from him. He always encourages devotees to serve, to do their best for the pilgrims who are coming every year. He wrote an amazing book called Sri Navadvipa Parikrama, which was the base for most of the information that we have in this website.

His Grace Sankarshan Nitai prabhu is the general manager of the Parikrama, we offer him our very big ‘thank you’. Who knows what ‘general manager’ means raise your hand?! Sankarshan Nitai prabhu takes care of all the details to set up this mega event, which involves at least 6 thousand pilgrims from around the world, in four different groups (International, Russian, Hindi, Bengali). To be a general manager means to hire boats to cross the Ganges for 2,500 people at once. Means arrange prasada to be serve for 6 thousand devotees at the same time in the last day of Parikrama. Means concerning about various aspects from the sound system and the security of the pilgrims till the quality of the prasada and kirtam. Means concerning about someone who loses his passport during the journey and etc etc. He is our Parikrama hero!

Among all the devotees who were working on this project our gratitude goes to Bhakta Nathan from Australia. He came to Sri Mayapur dhama this year of 2012 and when he was  invited to do this website for Navadvipa Mandala Parikrama he didn’t think twice! He immediately accepted it, due reasons that only Mahaprabhu can explain!
We don’t think that he had an idea what was it all about, the greatness and the real size of this project. He worked a lot and came up with this very nice website, very practical and beautiful. He was sacrificing his intelligence and skills on the service of the Lord. Thank you very much Nathan, We hope that you can get the most important blessing directly from Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu’s lotus feet, Krishna Prema!
And Sundara Govinda prabhu, thank you for your priceless guidance in the beginning of this project. What could we do without your orientation? We had a diamond in our hands, but we had no idea of how valuable it was, and you told us with patience and love.
And Chandan Battia, Krishna Presthaya ,  Anil Sharma, Govinda Prachar, Premalata devi dasi, Karuna hooper, thank you very much for being sensitive and helpful, allowing a variety of things to get done.
Sri Gauranga Mahaprabhu is so kind that he doesn’t need anything but he allows us to serve Him, for our own benefit. This is His greatness!
All glories to our beloved Srila Prabhupada, the savior of the whole universe, the Jagat guru Patita pavana, because nothing is possible without his mercy and everything is possible with his mercy.
