Śrī Śrīmad Gour Govinda Swami’s
This year we are celebrating the 84th holy appearance day and 29th Vyāsa-pūjā festival of our revered spiritual master Oṁ Viṣṇupāda Paramahaṁsa Parivrājakācārya 108 Śrī Śrīmad Gour Govinda Swami Mahārāja on 6 & 7 September 2013. This festival is celebrated all over the world.
The Meaning of Vyāsa-Pūjā
“Śrīla Bhaktisiddhānta Sarasvatī Gosvāmī Prabhupāda Mahārāja introduced the ceremony of Vyāsa-pūjā in our line on his 50th birthday. From that day, every year it has been observed. On his 52nd birth anniversary, Śrīla Bhaktisiddhānta Sarasvatī Gosvāmī Prabhupāda Mahārāja gave a lecture on Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam, describing the meaning of Vyāsa-pūjā. He said, “Vyāsa-pūjā means the pūjā of all gauḍīya-vaiṣṇava-ācāryas.” From this statement we can understand the purport of Vyāsa-pūjā. It is not only the pūjā of Vyāsadeva, or of Kṛṣṇa, or of Gaurasundara, or of guru. That is not real Vyāsa-pūjā. Vyāsa-pūjā means the pūjā of all pure gauḍīya-vaiṣṇava-ācāryas. That is real Vyāsa-pūjā.” (Excerpt from The Meaning of Vyāsa-Pūjā, a lecture by Śrī Śrīmad Gour Govinda Swami.)
As an offering we have published the lecture called “The Meaning of Vyāsa-Pūjā” given by Śrī Śrīmad Gour Govinda Swami Mahārāja on 10th March 1995, in Bhubaneswar, India.
