      We are all indebted to him. Anyone concerned with Chaitanya Saraswat Math, and its preaching, are all indebted to Sudhir Goswami Maharaja.

      Bhakti Sudhir Goswami Maharaja, he was the pushing man; he began preaching in my favor; he got impression, and he began to preach in my favor.

      In reality Sudhir Goswami is increasing the prestige of Chaitanya Saraswat Math and the real substance of the preaching of this Math. He has taken it out to the public, and that is the main thing. We are all indebted to him.

      Our Goswami Maharaja did this movement in the name of Chaitanya Saraswat Math, but it is really founded by Goswami Maharaja.

      All those that feel something, who get help from this institution, Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Math, they should be thankful to Sudhir Goswami Maharaja.

      Srila B. R. Sridhar Maharaj
