On the auspicious fifth waning moon cycle during winter
Season in the holy land of India, in Jagannath Puri Dham,

And mother Bhagavati Devi. In the British government, Kedarnath Dutta
Was deputy magistrate of the Puri district in Orissa and superintendent
Of the world famous Lord Jagganath Deva temple.Child was named Bimala prasad .
Later on to establish preaching centers for the propagation
Of the loving message of Sri Krishna Chaitanya Mahaprabhu,
Bimala Prasad took a vow to chant three lakhs of the Holy Name everyday,
To recite the Hare Krishna Maha-mantra one billion times.
He took almost nine years to complete these numbers.
During the period when Bimala Prasad performed this one billion Nam-Yagna,
Srila Bhaktivinode Thakur and Srila Gaur-Kishore Das Babaji Maharaj,
Spiritual shelters to Bimala Prasad, departed from this world .
Out of their separation, Bimala Prasad felt a lack of shelter and
Decided not to establish any preaching centers but
Continue to chant Holy Name every day for rest of his life.
In a morning dream, Sri Krishna Chaitanya Mahaprabhu’s
Associates appeared before Bimala Prasad and told him:
“You should change your mind and progress to propagate
Loving message of Mahaprabhu.” Bimala Prasad responded
By asking: “But, where is the manpower?” After hearing Bimala’s query,
Sriman Mahaprabhu’s associates promised to send him manpower.
Gradually messengers of Sriman Mahaprabhu appeared in Bimala ‘s life,
Paramananda Vidyavinode, Srila Bhakti Pradip Tirtha Goswami Maharaj,
Kunja Bihari Vidyabhusan, Sundarananda Vidyavinode, Vinode Bihari Prabhu,
Pranavananda Das Brahmachari and others. Bimala Prasad felt inspired
To establish preaching centers for spreading the loving message of Mahaprabhu.
In this Kali-Yuga to distribute Divine Love to everyone without discrimination
Between cast and creed, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, Sri Krishna,
Appeared in the form of Sriman Mahaprabhu, took Sanyas,
And became Sri Krishna Chaitanya.
On the day of Sriman Mahaprabhu’s appearance day, Bimala Prasad took Sanyas
And established a parent center for the entire Sri Gaudiya Math
