At last, the new improved and more complete edition of the “Gauidya Giti Guccha’, our sanga’s songbook, will soon be ready for printing. Throughout the years the song book has been printed and reprinted many times with new songs being added each time. This new edition will include the most complete selection of songs ever, well organized with tabs, be light-weight and have a superior binding for lying flat.
The book will follow the original Bengali Gaudiya GitiGuccha which Param Gurudeva and Srila Vaman Gosvami Maharaja continued to perfect over so many years. Some of the devotees working on the song book live in the Mathura Matha in India and have been working on this new edition for more than a year. They have expressed what has gone into making this new edition:
“Following our Srila Paramgurudev’s brilliant Bengali Gaudiya Giti Guccha we have organized the songs in a way to make it very easy to find the particular song you want to sing without having to look through the table of contents. We’ve also tried to keep everything close to the order that Bhaktivinoda Thakur and Narottama das Thakur kept their songs originally in their own books.”
