mathura thakursŚrī Keśavajī Gauḍīya Maṭha is adjacent to Śrī Raṅgeśvara Mahādeva and Kaṁsa­ṭīlā, on the right side of the parikramā path and on the left side of the Mathurā–Āgrā road. It is currently a well­known place of darśana. Ācārya keśarī oṁ viṣṇupāda Śrī Śrīmad Bhakti Prajñāna Keśava Gosvāmī Mahārāja named this maṭha after the presiding deity of Mathurā, the Supreme Lord of lords, Śrī Keśavajī. From its inauguration, Śrī Śrīmad Bhaktivedānta Nārāyaṇa Mahārāja was appointed superintendent in order to propagate pure bhakti as practised and preached by Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu to people in the Hindi speaking areas of India. In a very short time, many books were published from here in Hindi, India's national language, like Jaiva-dharma, Śrī Śīkṣāṣṭaka, Śrīman Mahāprabhu kī Śikṣā, Upadeśāmṛta, Śrī Manaḥ-śikṣā, Śrīmad Bhagavad-gītā and the monthly magazine Śrī Bhāgavata-patrikā. New books about bhakti continue to be published to this day. Śrī Abhayacaraṇa Bhaktivedānta, who widely spread śrī-harināma-saṅkīrtana in the Western world as preached by Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu and who extensively published and distributed Śrīmad Bhagavad- gītā, Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam and many other devotional scriptures in many languages of the world, accepted the renounced order of life (tridaṇḍa-sannyāsa) at this place from oṁ viṣṇupāda Śrī Śrīmad Bhakti Prajñāna Keśava Gosvāmī Mahārāja. He accepted the sannyāsa name and title of tridaṇḍi-svāmī Śrī Śrīmad Bhaktivedānta Svāmī Mahārāja. Śrī Śrīmad Bhaktivedānta Nārāyaṇa Mahārāja was the priest at this ceremony.
