The spiritual structure of Sri Gaudiya Math.

By Srila Bhakti Siddhanta Saraswati Thakur

Translated from a Bengali quotation
published in Sri Gaudiya Darsan,
Volume 1, Issue 10,
on Thursday, 10 May 1956.

Wherever the pure current following Sri Rupa flows, the current of Sri Bhakti Vinod shines; wherever the flood of eternal glorification of the deception-destroying Absolute Truth flows, there alone is Sri Gaudiya Math. Moreover, the residents of Sri Gaudiya Math are only those who at all times, in all respects, and with all their senses, uncovered by selfish desires (anyabhilas), renunciation (jnan), and exploitation (karma), glorify the deception-destroying Absolute Truth. Wherever there is no similarity with this Gaudiya Math, there, because deception has entered in one way or another, there is certainly no connection whatsoever with the pure Gaudiya Math.
