Goud (also spelt as Gaud or Gawd) Saraswat Brahmins are a Hindu Brahmin community in India and a part of the larger Saraswat Brahmin community. They are popularly referred to as GSBs. They are Konkani people and primarily speak Konkani as their mother tongue. They are the first Rigvedic Brahmins.
They claim their origin to the Brahmins who lived on the banks of the now-extinct river Saraswati of Pakistan Punjab or Kashmir. They derived their name from either the river Saraswati or from their spiritual leader, the sage Saraswat Muni(sage) who lived on the banks of Saraswati. These Brahmins were one of the Pancha Gawda Brahmin groups who lived north of the Vindhyas. They belonged to Smarta tradition and primarily worshiped the five deities: Shiva, Vishnu, Devi, Surya and Ganesha. Throughout the course of history, the Saraswat Brahmins have migrated to a variety of locations and are found mostly in Western coast of India.
I have a cosmic connection with the GSB Lord Ganesha King Circle and his followers Gaud Saraswat Brahmins .
I got an invitation to visit the GSB Seva Mandal King Circle from Amit Dinesh Pai .. son of my dearest friend late Mr Dinesh Pai..
His sister Anita Kamat Pai was there with her two children Amits wife kids and Amits mom.. Thanks to Amit Pai and my other GSB friends I was given a strategic position in front of Lord GSB and I shot the Artis Pujas before Visarjan including the auction ,
I met Dr BU Pai my mentor and his family his father in law Mr Shenoy and Sandip and Sunil Shenoy my other GSB friends .
I did not wait for the Lords Visarjan departure , as I was barefeet and I have a deep diabetic wound on my feet so walking with Lord GSB was really not possible this time ,,
I bid farewell to all my friends walked till King Circle Station and took a train back home to Bandra Station , from Bandra Station I walked home with a limping leg.
