Bhakti Vaibhava Puri Maharaj Founder-Acharya of Sri Krishna Chaitanya Mission

Sri Krishna Chaitanya Mission is a religious organisation in the Gaudiya Vaishnavism tradition founded by Srila Bhakti Vaibhava Puri Maharaj; Maharaj received initiation from Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Saraswati Thakur, so the mission operates in the Saraswat tradition of Bhaktisiddhanta and his Gaudiya Math. Disciples chant the Hare Krishna mana-mantra on prayer beads, wear dhoti or Sari (Sanyasa initiates wear the traditional vesh of their ashram), and preach through traveling, book distribution, singing Kirtan and distribution of prasadam (food offered to Lord Krishna).
