Srila Bhakti Raksak Sridhar Dev-Goswami Maharaj appeared in the world in 1895 in West Bengal, India. As a young man he surrendered to his Guru, Srila Bhakti Siddhanta Saraswati Thakur, and served him wholeheartedly. Appreciating Srila Sridhar Maharaj’s deep understanding of pure devotion, Srila Saraswati Thakur publicly recognised him as «a fit person to continue my disciplic succession».
Thereafter Srila Sridhar Maharaj founded Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Math on the banks of the River Ganges in Nabadwip. He preached Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu’s teachings of divine love throughout India and revealed their import in unprecedented depth.
Srila Sridhar Maharaj departed from the mortal world in 1988, leaving behind his faithful followers, his wisdom, and his Mission.
