Srila Giri Maharaja – A statement… “which could hardly be more false”

Date: 1/13/18

Dear Mr. Deace,

Please accept my warm greetings and well-wishes.

During CRTV episode 206, you spoke something untrue at 19-20 min. into the show. At that time you said this:

“The idea of a personal God, the idea of you having a personal relationship with him and you being made in his image, the imago Dei does not exist on planet earth outside of the Judeo Christian worldview and that is why you can find ways to syncretize every belief system except the Judeo Christian one because it is, shall we say, set apart from the rest of the world views on planet earth.”

I expect this statement of yours, which could hardly be more false, was an unintentional mistake. As such, I hope you will correct it very soon after reading the evidence of your mistake which I supply below.

Srila Giri Maharaja – “2018, an auspicious beginning.”

Date: January 1, 2018

Dear Sriman Suresh Durgam dasa,

Please accept my humble obeisances in remembrance of our Divine Masters.

By Srila Gurudeva’s grace we are pleased to acknowledge your service donation in the amount of $50.00. It is an auspicious beginning for the new year as it reminds us of our commitment to the seva of our Divine Masters; their devotees, Deities, Maths and Mission.

Almost immediately after my receiving sannyasa from Srila Sridhara Maharaja your kindness upon me helped me to further realize Krishna is our only true friend, protector and guide. He reveals Himself as such through His devotees, such as your good self, in ways as mysterious as that which introduced me to you and has kept us as long time friends. Now, thirty five years later, it is wonderful to see the Read More...

Srila Giri Maharaja – “Open letter to Sripada B.N. Acharya Maharaja”

Date: 1/5/18

Dear Sripada Acharya Maharaja,

Please accept my humble obeisances in remembrance of our Divine Masters.

Since the time of Srila Govinda Maharaja’s disappearance I have been very unhappy and disturbed to see the activities of those who opposed Srila Gurudeva’s decision naming you as his successor Sevaite President Acharya of Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Math, Navadwipa and the Indian group. I have some idea also, from considerable personal experience, how much you must have struggled to regain your rightful position.

Recently I was informed of an article written by Sriman Hasyapriya dasa which outlines a reconciliation between yourself, Sripada Paramahamsa Maharaja and others who had behaved very badly by opposing Srila Gurudeva’s direction with respect to the position (described Read More...

Дорогой Шрипад Б.К. Гири Махарадж!

Пожалуйста, примите мои дандават пранамы в память о наших Божественных Учителях, Шрила Гуру Махарадже и Шрила Свами Махарадже Прабхупаде. Я своевременно получил ваше письмо от 14 марта.

Я всегда помню ваше святейшество и ваше непрерывное служение. Вы проявляете столько терпения и стараетесь изо всех сил распространять очень высокое понимание нашего Шрила Гуру Махараджа. Что мы можем поделать? У нас нет иного пути, мы должны терпеть, даже если необходимо, мы останемся одни.


Srila Govinda Maharaja “I Am Always Remembering Your Holy Self” (1997 Letter to Srila Giri Maharaja)


Dear Sripad B.K. Giri Maharaja,

Please accept my dandavat pranams in remembrance of our Divine Masters, Srila Guru Maharaja and Srila Svami Maharaja Prabhupada. I have duly received your letter of 14 March.

I am always remembering your holy self and your steady service. You are tolerating so much and trying with everything you have to distribute the very high conceptions of Srila Guru Maharaja. What can we do? We have no other way, we must tolerate and we will stand alone if necessary.

Дорогой Шрипад Бхакти Канан Гири Махарадж

Прими мои дандават-пранамы в памятовании наших духовных учителей. Я был счастлив получить твоё содержательное письмо вместе с твоими душевными пожертвованиями на служение.

Отношения между преданными порой бывают очень сложными, особенно в этот век Кали. В действительности, у нас нет ясного понимания настроения преданности Богу и почтения ко всем, Read More...

“I Am Always With Your Holiness” – A Letter From Srila Govinda Maharaja (12/17/94)


17 December 1994

Dear Sripad Bhakti Kanan Giri Maharaj,

Please accept my dandavat pranams in remembrance of our Divine Masters. I am very happy to receive your informative letter with your affectionate service donation.

Dealings with the devotees are actually very difficult, especially in this age of Kali. Actually we do not know clearly the mood of devotion of everybody and for that we shall try to see first ourselves. How much am I perfect, what is my duty, and in anyway not to loose our target- these three. Here I am always realizing myself and trying to proceed to our destiny with our real friends and so-called friends.

My dear Maharaj it is very hard in this age to harmonize with all the environment, but we have no other way. You are so affectionate and simple hearted. You are a clean Read More...

Srila BS Govinda Maharaja “The Voice of Sri Chaitanyadev”

Srila Govinda Mahraja, Gaura Purnima 2006

anyera hṛdaya—mana, mora mana—vṛndāvana
‘mane’ ‘bane’ eka kari’ jāni
tāṅhā tomāra pada-dvaya, karāha yadi udaya,
tabe tomāra pūrṇa kṛpā māni

The illusory environment is always attacking and disturbing the jīva-souls in so many ways. But Prabhupād Śrīla Bhakti Siddhānta Saraswatī started the cleansing process, like Guṇḍichā-mārjjan,the cleansing of the Lord’s Temple. This was his first work in this world.

The heart must be made like Vṛndāvan. It won’t do to keep a jungle in the heart. Many disturbing elements are in the jungle, but there is nothing like that in Vṛndāvan. Everything in Vṛndāvan is perfectly pure. So we must worship the Supreme Lord purely. To mix with māyā for our sense pleasure and invite God in our heart Read More...
