July 5th celebrates the divine disappearance of Sanatana Goswami, brother of Rupa Goswami and the most important of the six Goswamis. His devotional service made him the most beloved disciple of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu and our chief purva-acharya. A brief history of his life can be read at the link below.
This auspicious day also celebrates Guru Purnima which is considered to be the appearance day of Srila Vyasadeva. Many other important spiritual occurrences are attributed to this day. But symbolically it celebrates the appearance of one’s own guru who is the most important person in one’s spiritual life.
The TOVP Team has launched a special campaign for this day to sponsor a Guru Parampara Brick. Your own guru’s name will be inscribed on this brick and it will be placed under the Guru Parampara altar to remain for hundreds, if not thousands of years. Funds from the sponsorship will be used for the completion of Lord Nrsimhadeva’s temple wing and altar in 2021.
Please consider this seva opportunity on this most important and auspicious day of our purva-acharya, Sanatana Goswamipada, the guru of gurus, and to honor and serve your own guru. If you cannot sponsor a Guru Parampara Brick simply use the General Donation option and offer what you can.
