New Projects, Updates & AnnouncementsBE INFORMED — BE INSPIRED!
At last, the new improved and more complete edition of the “Gaudiya Giti Guccha”, our sanga’s songbook, will soon be ready for printing. Throughout the years the song book has been printed and reprinted many times with new songs being added each time. This new edition will include the most complete selection of songs ever, well organized with tabs, be light-weight and have a superior binding for lying flat.
The book will follow the original Bengali Gaudiya Giti Guccha which Param Gurudeva and Srila Vaman Gosvami Maharaja continued to perfect over so many years. Some of the devotees working on the song book live in the Mathura Matha in India and have been working on this new edition for more than a year. They have expressed what has gone into making this new edition:
For over 15 years, we have been a community of Gaudiya Vaishnav aspirants, who spontaneously gathered together in the San Francisco Bay Area, mostly on the East Bay side (Berkeley/Oakland/Richmond).
We hope to grow our community both to help us along on our own spiritual path and to make this path visible, accessible and welcoming to all Bay Area residents.
The path of Pure Bhakti
What spiritual path are we trying to follow? The path of Pure Bhakti.
This is the path of seeking loving connection with the Supreme Lord, Sri Krishna, under the auspices of His Divine Consort, Srimati Radharani, in a mood of loving devotion (pure bhakti), through congregational chanting of the holy names (harinam sankirtan), devotional service (bhakti yoga & seva), and the living blessings and guidance of pure and senior devotees (Sadhus and Vaishnav Thakurs) and qualified spiritual master-teachers (Guru-varga).
