References and notes

A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, a disciple of Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati, was the founder of the International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON), which also became known as the Hare Krishna movement.[2] Another disciple of Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati named as Patita pavan goswami Maharaj founded a Math for the women according to the orders given to him by his spiritual master.this matha is named as " shri guru prapanna ashram".

Bhakti Dayita Madhav Maharaj, a disciple of Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati, was the founder of the Sree Chaitanya Gaudiya Math.

Later other disciples of Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati established many different branches of Gaudiya Maths.

By the time of the founder's death (1 January 1937), the Gaudiya Math had established 64 branches.[1] Most were in India, but preaching centres were maintained for a time in Burma, England and Germany.

From the beginning of Chaitanya's bhakti movement in Bengal, devotees, including Haridasa Thakur and others, whether Muslim or Hindu by birth, have been participants. This openness and disregard for the traditional caste system received a boost from the "broad-minded vision" of Bhaktivinoda Thakura,[2] a nineteenth-century magistrate and prolific writer on bhakti topics, and was institutionalized by his son and successor Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakura in the twentieth-century Gaudiya Math.[2]
