Photos from the Day of Srila Govinda Maharaja’s Tirobhava 2019

My dandavats. I thought you might like to see some photos taken on the day of Srila Govinda Maharaja’s tirobhava. Lila Sundari Devi collected a great number of apple blossoms from neighbors to use for decorating. There are two large vases like this, one on each side of the altar. Lila also collected many magnolia tree blossoms which were also used for offering/decorating.   Bhoga offerings included shaka (top of plate) collected from our yard. When Srila Gurudeva was here I prepared this for him fried in mustard oil with chili, mustard seeds, etc. and he liked it very much. Sri Sri Guru Gauranga Gandharvika Giridhari-jiu! Your servant, Swami B.K. Giri

Transcendental competition: Who’s the Mystery Man?


In our post BSG | “I need your association.” we offered the chance to request a full copy of the email sent by Sripada Goswami Maharaja to me, Giri Maharaja. Among the requests we received was this one:

Your Name: Ramai
Your Email: [Redacted]
Message to the Secretary: Dandavat Maharaja. Send me a copy of Goswami’s email of apology

Although the name is listed as that of Ramai (Sriman Ramai dasa brahmachari) and the email matches with the one I have on record for him, I was highly doubtful that he would have much interest in this matter. Neither have I heard anything from him (that I can recall) for the past eight years or so.

More to the point, this demanding language: “Send me a copy of Goswami’s email of apology” does not ring true to me as language this gentle vaishnava Read More...

One of the 172 new videos added to the Srila Govinda Maharaja Archive

We have just added 172 new videos to the Srila Bhakti Sundar Govinda Dev Goswami Maharaja Archive.

These videos were languishing in an old 1990s video tape format. Recently we were able to find a suitable encoder to allow us to upload them digitally.

No editing was done for content or duration. Each of these videos represent a single video tape. Each tape was ripped to MP4, with only slight corrections made for color and sound. Otherwise, they are presented here exactly as they were recorded during the 1990s and early 2000s.

We hope you find them as enlivening as we did while preparing them for this auspicious release.

Srila Bhakti Sundar Govinda Dev Goswami Maharaja Ki Jai!
