Jaya Sri Sri Guru Gauranga jayataha.

A book distribution party of His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada gave Bhagavad-Gita As It Is to me during registration for my second semester of college . I am eternally grateful for their efforts in serving his Divine Grace. I took a long break from college and joined his mission, meeting him and receiving harinam that year, and the following year meeting him once again in New Vrindavan and receiving diska afterwards.

Then he disappeared from my mortal vision in such a short time. In my first trip to India in 1981 I crossed the river and had darsan of Srila Bhakti Rashak Sridhara Gosvami Maharaja. In my second trip in 1989 I met Srila Bhaktivedanta Narayana Gosvami Maharaja who gave me prasad and planted a seed in my heart for later fructification.

I briefly met Srila Gour-Govinda Swami Maharaja in 1993 or 1994 during his foreign tours. In 1996 I had good fortune of being present in Badger, California during Srila Bhaktivedanta Narayana Gosvami Maharaja visit and launch of his world wide preaching mission.

Now I am finding inspiration and shelter in the moods and presentations of Srila Bhaktivedanta Madhusudana Maharaja.

Every acarya has some specialty in presenting the teaching of our guru-varga. I will present some of these themes at a later date.
