With the blessings from Acharya Dev Sree Sree Dada and permission from Deogher, we are now ready to receive your Istavrity and other monthly and spl occasion offerings to Deogher in Satsang Canada. A separate bank account has been opened in this regard. We shall start collecting Istavrity effective August 1st, 2018.
As you probably are aware that sending Istavrity on the 30th day is the responsibility of each initiated person (Guru bhai/maa). Some of us use to send money from Canada, some use to send it through our relatives in India/ Bangladesh and some even never sent money as they do not know how and where to send. While you can still continue to send Istavrity money the way you have been doing but you now have a choice to send it to Satsang Canada Istavrity account which is being authorized by Acharya Dev Sree Sree Dada for Canada wide collection.
Every time you send the Istavrity money, you shall receive the “Arghya Prashasti” – Receipt from Nandan da. This “Arghya Prashasti” shall come to you as an attachment in your email from Satsangcanada@hotmail.com . If you do not receive your “Arghya Prashasti” within one week time then you may contact me or Sanjib Das da for Istavrity money received confirmation and issue of receipt.
Every family sending Istavrity or other offerings to Satsang Canada shall be assigned with a unique family code. Please mention your Canadian family code (and India/Bangladesh Istavrity family code) every time you send money.
