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 continued good fortune wrought by the working of Krishna’s unseen hand.

I pray this finds you in good health and spirits and with a new year of continued blessings from Sri Sri Guru Gauranga Gandharvika Giridharijiu. Please convey the same to your good wife Srimati Malati Devi.


Swami B.K. Giri
