Śrīla Aranya Gosvāmī Mahārāja never took a break from chanting the names of Śrī Hari, speaking Śrī Hari’s glories and pastimes, or serving Śrī Hari.

Śrīla Prabhupāda and the Vaiṣṇavas under Śrīla Prabhupāda’ guidance were immensely pleased by Śrī Siddha-svarūpa dāsa’s sincere service efforts. As tokens of śrī gurupāda-padma’s pleasure, he was awarded the Śrī Gaura Aśīrvāda titles ‘Upadeśaka’ (instructor), ‘Mahopadeśaka’ (great instructor), and ‘Vidyā-vāgīśa’ (master of knowledge and speech) by the Navadvīpa Pracāranī Sabhā.

All the commanders of the army of Śrīman Mahāprabhu coming in the disciplic succession of Śrī Brahmā-Madhva-Gauḍīya Sampradāya have served with complete surrender and dedication to fulfill His most cherished desires. But the accomplishments of Śrīla Rūpa Gosvāmī and Śrīla Sanātana Gosvāmī are beyond what even Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu, the Supreme Lord Himself, could ever have conceived.
