A brief visit to Caitanya Matha

Hari Sauri: On March 6, 1976, about 6:30 a.m. Prabhupada went with his senior sannyasis to the Caitanya Gaudiya Matha to visit Govinda Maharaja. He was received cordially in the darsana-mandap, or viewing area, at the samadhi, or tomb, of Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakura. After offering his obeisances to his Guru Maharaja, he sat on the spacious marble floor as many members of the ashrama gathered around.
 
As Govinda Maharaja and Prabhupada talked, delicious gulab jamuns were passed around to the visitors. After about twenty-five minutes, Prabhupada returned to Mayapur Candrodaya Mandir. He was in time to greet the Deities and give his lecture.
