"He Set The Example for Guru-Vaisnava Seva"
I want to offer my humble dandavat pranams to the lotus feet of my Spiritual Master nitya lila pravista om visnupada astottara sata Srila Bhakti Vijnana Bharati Gosvami Maharaj, in the same way I offer my dandavat pranams to nitya lila pravista om visnupada astottara sata Srila Bhaktivendanta Narayan Maharaj, from whom through his books I've been able to meet Him and follow His teachings. My Gurudeva, Srila Bhakti Vijnana Bharati Goswami Maharaj is one of the most prominent disciples of Srila Bhakti Dayita Madhava Gosvami Maharaj, who was one of the most senior disciples of Srila Bhakti Siddhanta Saraswati Thakura Prabhupad, Founder Acarya of Sri Caitanya Gaudiya Math; Srila Guru Maharaj is also a very beloved friend of Srila Bhaktivedanta Narayana Maharaj. Among all the devotee and acarya community in India and worldwide, Srila Gurudeva is known to be an encyclopedia due to his knowledge in siddhanta. Srila Gurudeva was always at the service of all the vaishnavas He came in contact with, one way or another He always worried for the needs and commodities they may require. If we take shelter in his books, we could understand the service mood by which Srila Gurudev served so many Vaishnavas selflessly. His life is a clear example on how we should perform guru and vaishnav seva, making Him a symbol of vaishnav etiquette.
Therefore, we are fortunate to have His darshan through a picture, audio, video conference or personally, and listen to the sweetest Hari katha from his lotus lips. Instructed by my God brothers and by trying to follow the example of Srila Gurudev of glorifying the acaryas, is why I humbly offer this puspanjali unto the lotus feet of my beloved Srila Gurudev on this auspicious day of His vyasa puja. I pray to all guru-varga so I can always remember my Gurudev and in this way, through His mercy I can even get an small advancement in my spiritual life, since through my own capabilities I cannot obtain anything. Everything is obtained by the blessings and mercy of Hari, Guru and Vaishnavs. I kindly ask my Gurudev to never forget about me, otherwise my life will never be successful. Srila Bhakti Vijnana Bharati Goswami Maharaj, ki Jay!!! Your in the service of the vaisnavas
