Who propose to build a temple for the murderer of Mahatmaji and
Publish the assassin’s books- a shame and treacherous indeed!

(I humbly offer my obeisance to Saraswati Prabhu (Srila Prabhupada Bhaktisiddhanta Saraswati Goswami Thakur) who imparted to us the glories of Sri Gauranga and Sri Krishna’s Holy Name and expanded Their kirtan for delivering the atheists.)

On that Friday Sixth  February Eighteen Seventy Four
On the auspicious fifth waning moon cycle during  winter
Season  in the holy land of India, in Jagannath Puri Dham,
Effulgence newborn baby boy appeared to father Kedarnath Dutta
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
“Sri Chaitanya Math” in Mayapur, Nadia, West Bengal. Bimala Prasad
Changed the color of his cloth from white to saffron and
Became “Bhakti Siddhanta Saraswati.” established sixty four  Gaudiya Maths.
