A Centennial Milestone
A Worldwide Celebration
An Anthology of Love
In honor of the supremely auspicious one-hundredth appearance day of our beloved Srila Gurudeva, nitya-lila pravista om-visnupada astottara-sata Śrī Śrīmad Bhaktivedānta Nārāyana Gosvāmī Mahāraja, a most significant day in Gaudiya Vaisnava history, we present him with this Online Centennial Vyasa-Puja Book. May he be pleased with this bouquet of the fragrant flowers of his devotees’ heartfelt offerings of love.
Srila Gurudeva, like the sun, illuminates and purifies the entire world. We humbly submit this effort to broadcast his transcendental glories on his special centennial Vyāsa-Pūjā for the benefit of all, as remembrance of him succeeds in driving away all inauspiciousness and awards our eternal welfare by awakening our service moods toward Śrī Śrī Guru-Gaurāṅga Rādhā-Vinoda Biharījī.
This vyasa-puja website was developed as a medium for Srila Gurudeva’s disciples, followers, admirers, and well-wishers from around the globe to commemorate this momentous occasion. The contributors, including acaryas from various Gaudiya Vaisnava institutions along with Srila Gurudeva’s senior devotees, have shared their deepest realizations of his divine qualities, pastimes, and teachings. We hope you find these offerings to be a continual source of inspiration for your meditation upon this illustrious personality, whose contributions to this world are beyond enumeration.
The need to create an online vyasa-puja book became particularly acute after the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, which unfortunately has prevented devotees in various parts of the world from gathering together and sharing their homages aloud. Especially for those who may live far from other devotees, we hope this site will provide a means to hear about Srila Gurudeva’s glories on the day of his appearance and throughout the coming year
Please be sure to explore all sections of this site and follow the links to a variety of new content developed in honor of this historic occasion. We also ask you to review the Note from the Editorial Team for additional information about this website.
If you missed sending your offering and would like to submit one now, you can do so here. You can also email it to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will publish the new offerings throughout the Centennial year. For any other questions or comments, please use the Contact Us link at the bottom of each page.
We would like to express our sincere gratitude to the worldwide community of devotees who have shared their sincere offerings from the heart.
We would like to also thank all the members of the Centennial Vyasa-puja website Seva Team who worked tirelessly for several months to develop this website.
All glories to Śrī Śrīmad Bhaktivedānta Nārāyana Gosvāmī Mahāraja! All glories to his auspicious centenary appearance day!
