Letter in honor of Srila Narayan Maharaj’s Dissapearance

From today we will miss the physical association of an exulted Vaisnava, His Divine Grace Srila Bhakti Vedanta Narayan Goswami Maharaj,

who traveled abroad tirelessly even at his advanced age to deliver many fallen souls.Whenever I would go to His Grace for guidance, Srila Maharaj happily addressed all my questions. My beloved Gurudeva, His Divine Grace Srila Bhakti Pramode Puri Goswami Maharaj, entered his eternal pastimes on the 22nd of November, 1999.

After this, I went to Devananda Gaudiya Math in Navadwip Dham to receive instructions.

At that time, Srila Maharaj sweetly instructed me to remain tolerant and to continue to carry out the mission of Mahaprabhu under the shelter of my Gurudeva, Srila Bhakti Pramode Puri Goswami Maharaj.

To this day I am following this instruction, which allows me to feel the benefit of being tolerant while living in Vaisnava society so that I may follow the path of devotion peacefully.

On the 29th of December at Jagannath Puri Dham, Srila Narayan Goswami Maharaj physically left the mortal world, but Srila Maharaj is always with us in spirit when we follow in his footsteps. We must practice his message of Harikatha and read the valuable devotional books; then we will be able to glimpse and understand the teachings of the six Goswamis and henceforth become eligible to deliver ourselves from the misery of the mortal world. From today, our only opportunity to serve Srila Maharaj is to follow his Vani (instructions). In reality, Vani Seva will keep us close to this exulted personality.

I humbly pray to the Lotus feet of Srila Narayan Goswami Maharaj; please give me the strength to engage in your Vani Seva and allow me to carry out the mission of Mahaprabhu with purity for the rest of my life under the shelter of Guru-Parampara (disciplic succession).

Nitai Gour Haribol

Seeking specks of the dust from the Lotus feet of pure devotees,

B.B.Bodhayan

  1. Dandabats Maharaji, thank you for being you. I have heard some tidbits of your mercy to one of My main mentors, Dyutidhara Maharaja. I have only had a glimpse of you when you walked by our humble abode Dyutidharadham in Nabadwipa, a couple years back. I have wanted to meet you and now I have. You have brought tears to my eyes with the beauty of simplicity of your statement. Thank you for following the instructions of your Gurudeva, both Diksa and Siksa. Thank you for showing , by ,example, what Guru tattva is all about. Your actions herein have burned you in my heart, allowing me to get a glimpse of how much of an exulted personality you are. from one whom appreciates you. an aspiring, Hari dasa
