Shri Chaitanya Saraswati Gaudiya Math
This math was originally the place of bhajan of Shrila Bhakti Raksaka Shridhar Maharaj, one of the chief disciples of Shrila Saraswati Thakur. He was a great and powerful acarya who understood the conclusions of Shrila Saraswati Thakur, and could effectually transmit these conclusions to others. He was an excellent speaker, and although his lectures were esoteric, they were also logical and philosophical. He composed many stotras and stavas (prayers) in glorification of the Lord, Guru, Vaishnava and the holy dham. Our spiritual master, Shrila Keshava Maharaj, took sannyasa from him in Katwa in the year 1941. Hare Krishna!
