ŚRI GAUDIYA PATRIKA: SCANNED AND PRESERVED
The Treasure Chest of Śrīla Gurudeva’s Personal Library !!
55 years of Śrī Gauḍīya Patrikā, starting from 1949, scanned and preserved!
(From GVP Team)
This collection of Śrī Gauḍīya Patrikā offers a wide range of Gauḍīya Vaiṣṇava treasures. Each issue contains Bengali translations of various strotras from Śrīla Rūpa Gosvāmī’s Stavamālā, Śrīla Raghunātha Dāsa Gosvāmī’s Stavāvalī, Śrīla Viśvanātha Cakravartī Ṭhākura’s Stavāmṛta Laharī or from other Gauḍīya Vaiṣṇava literatures.
Each issue of the magazine contains articles by Śrīla Bhaktivinoda Ṭhākura and Śrīla Bhaktisiddhānta Sarasvatī Prabhupāda, and by his disciples, grand-disciples and, in later years, by his great-grand-disciples.
Anyone can glean the essence of all the Vaiṣṇava scriptures simply by reading Śrī Gauḍīya Patrikā, which is an ocean of nectarean Sārasvata Gauḍīya conceptions where one can dive and swim without the slightest fear of being attacked by the sharks of apasiddhānta.
Originally this Śrī Gauḍīya Patrikā scanning seva was initiated by Śrīla Gurudeva’s disciple Caitanya prabhu, who was assisted by Vijaya-kṛṣṇa prabhu. They scanned the first thirteen years of issues, while Vraja-kiśorī dīdī scanned the remaining forty-two years. This has resulted in a digital library archive of fifty-five years of Śrī Gauḍīya Patrikā, from 1949 to 2003–2004.
In honour of Śrīla Gurudeva’s centennial appearance, we humbly present to Śrīla Gurudeva this digital Śrī Gauḍīya Patrikā archive on this day, confident that it will bring him much pleasure to offer it to his own gurudeva. Just as one worships Gaṅgā-devī by offering her palmfuls of Gaṅgā water, Śrīla Gurudeva, along with his disciples and followers serving as his instruments to preserve and propagate his gurudeva’s cherished desires and conceptions, is offering the matchless gift bequeathed to him back to his gurudeva and beloved śikṣā-gurus.
This priceless contribution is now being offered to the Sārasvata Gauḍīya Vaiṣṇava community.
