Shri Narasingha Chaitanya Matha

India (VNN) - by Shri Narasingha Chaitanya Matha

Shri Narasingha Chaitanya Matha is situated on the banks of the sacred river Kaveri in South India. It is possibly the most unique Krishna conscious ashram in the world today. The natural beauty, climate, cultural setting, and geographical location of this place is fantastic. Everything at Shri Narasingha Chaitanya Matha abounds with rememberance of Krishna. The devotees engage in talks about Krishna and the topic of pure devotion both day and night. Mundane topics of the illusory world have no place here at the Matha. Even the birds and animals at the Matha join in sankirtan and the plants and flowers offer their fruits and flowers for the pleasure of Sri Sri Radha Govinda.

The Matha has aquired the nickname "Govindaji Gardens". Life here is like something you could only find in the pages of the Srimad Bhagavatam or the Caitanya-caritamrta. It is like no mundane place on earth - it is the paravyoma (spirtual sky) appearing on earth. Visit our website, meet our devotees and see for yourself. Come by in the real world and visit us any time. Hare Krishna! Gaura Haribol!

Statement of Purpose:

Established by the disciples and followers of Srila A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada and Srila Bhakti Raksaka Sridhar Deva Goswami, to carry out the teachings of Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu (suddha-bhakti or pure devotional service), as they are exemplified in the lives of great saints, such as Rupa Goswami Prabhupada, Sanatana Goswamipada, Raghunatha dasa Goswami, Jiva Goswami, Bhaktivinode Thakura, and Bhaktisiddhanta Saraswati Thakura Prabhupada.
Web Site highlights include:

Philosophical presentations of Srila A. C. Bhaktivedanta Prabhupada, Srila Bhakti Raksaka Sridhara Deva Goswami and Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Saraswati Thakura. Also the writings of Swami B. G. Narasingha and Swami B. B. Vishnu are presented online.

Ashrama photo tour, Family Profiles, Kids corner, pilgrimage photo tours to the source of the Ganges,Vrndavana Govardhana Parikrama, Gandaki Salagrama expedition, Kumaradhara Mountain Trek and much more.

Recent discussions of Swami B. G. Narasingha (aka Jagat Guru Swami) with the ISKCON GBC in a spirit of cooperation have highlighted many controversial spiritual concepts such as accepting a siksa guru; illuminated in the classic "Sri Guru and His Grace" by Srila Bhakti Raksaka Sridhara Deva Goswami (illustrated edition on line).


This controversy has been documented with ample references in the publication, "Our Affectionate Guardians," also presented on line with illustrations.


A sample of topics covered are: the relationship between Srila Prabhupada and Srila Sridhara Maharaja, siksa outside ISKCON as instructed by Srila Prabhupada, the Zonal Acarya System and the greatest enemy of the Vaishnava -- Vaishnava aparadha.

All in all, a graphically intensive web site designed to penetrate into the heart of Vaishnavism and instill an urge for pure devotional service within.
