Hare Krishna,

Srila Rupa Goswami has written that a higher abode, even than Vaikuntha the eternal abode of the Lord beyond the material existance, is Mathura. Because it is in Mathura that Krishna, the Supreme personality of Godhead, appears within this world. And within the Mathura mandal the most special place is the forest of Vrindavan, where Krishna performs His most intimate pastimes including the rasalila. And the most intimate special place in the forest of Vrindavan is Govardhan, the king of all mountains, wherein Krishna performs His most special pastimes with gopis, gopas, cows and calves. Krishna revealed this hill to be non different from Himself, personally lifted it with His little finger for seven days and seven nights. And the most special place within Govardhan is Radhakund, where Srimati Radharani’s love fully manifests in liquid form and just as Her love is most dear, in fact conquers the heart of Krishna, in the same way this Radhakund is most dear to Krishna.

During Krishna’s lila, as we have discussed, Krishna wanted the residents of Vrindavan headed by Nanda to abandon all varieties of religion and surrender to His loving service. This is the conclusion of Bhagavad Gita.
sarva-dharmän parityajya mäm ekaà çaraëaà vraja ahaà tväà sarva-päpebhyo mokñayiñyämi mä çucaù
Abandon all varieties of religion and just surrender unto Me, I shall protect you from all reactions. Do not fear.
The Srimad Bhagavatam tells us that when you water the root of the tree, every part of the tree is satisfied. Everything that exists has its roots, has its origin in Krishna, in God. janmädy asya yataù. The Absolute Truth is from whom everything emanates. When we water the root of the tree, the leaves, branches, twigs and bark, everything is satisfied. When we satisfy Krishna,
devarñi-bhütäpta-nåëäà pitèëäà…
There is beautiful verse in Srimad Bhagavatam that tells that we fulfill all of our obligations. All of the devatas, all of the spiritual and religious principles, all of the living entities, our forefathers, mothers – by satisfying Krishna everything is fulfilled.
Krishna told the cow herd men and ladies, Indra may be the king of the devas. Indra may be supplying to us rain without which there could be no life. Water is so important. The vast majority of the planet earth is water. The major part of our bodies is water, in various forms. Without water there could be nothing to drink, nothing could grow. When we live in the cities sometimes we are so disconnected from the reality around us, that we think that the water comes from the tap we turn on and food comes from the market place that we purchase it from. But the reality is all food comes from earth and the earth can only provide it when there is sufficient water.

Drought is devastating. We ave been to villages in India, where there have been massive droughts and it’s practival devastation. Utter poverty is there when there is drought.

….So here is the demigod, who was supplying water and the vrajavasis are farmers, and they take care of cows. So they are very directly aware that the rain is not only their occupational sustenance but their survival. For so many generations there was this puja to express gratitude and honor to the person who gives water. What it really comes to is a sense of gratitude to acknowledge those people who are helping us so much. There could be no love without gratitude. Culture within human civilization is very much about having the decency to honor, respect and be grateful to people who help us. Parents help us, the mother what she goes through while we are in the womb! So much trouble. But in the vedic culture there are celebrations and festivals for various stages of pregnancy, where actually the mother is feeling very happy. She is celebrating the different transformations that are taking place within her body. Because she is not seeing it as something ordinary. Where there is affection it could transform what appears to be pain into bliss. Bhakti Vinod Thakur offered a beautiful prayer that the difficulties, the trials and tribulations and even the suffering that I endure in serving you Krishna, is my greatest happiness. When we endure difficulties for the ones we love, our happiness is in pleasing the one we love. If a mother, even going through pain, is thinking through this pain, I am nourshing, protecting and helping my child. There may be pain to physical body but it brings pleasure to the heart. Real happiness is the thing of the heart not of the body or the mind. Real happiness has its origin in the soul’s love for Krishna.

What Krishna was asking the vrajavasis to do was something radical – to completely disrupt the tradition that had been honored to respect and to show gratitude to the great king of heaven who supplies rains for our sustenance, to worship a mountain. the cows the brahmanas , and Govardhan hill. And because the residents of Vrindavan ultimately, whether they lived or died was a detail, but how they made Krishna happy that was the all and all because they had such love. They were not concerned about their happiness. They weren’t even concerned with liberation . Lord Siva describes Chitraketu, a great devotee. naranyana para sarve na kutashchana bibhyati. Just see the nature of these devotees whether they are in heaven or in the most suffering conditions of hell makes absolutely no difference to them, their only concern is they are serving in what ever situation they are serving, they are happy. The reality is we can serve anywhere. There could be no material situation that could be the impediments to bhakta if we are sincere.
So for the pleasure of Krishna they were willing to disrupt the most major religious observance they did all year. And Indra was very angry. We discussed this the other day on Govardhan puja. But Krishna manifested Himself as Govardhan hill as the vrajavasis offered on Krishna’s suggestion mountains of food, Krishna appeared in a gigantic form on top of Govardhan hill. It was like two mountains in one. One was an animate mountain which had a very Krishna like form and the other one was a mountain mountain which was purely Krishna’s form. And the mountain spoke and ate all the food and it asked for more and then gave everything back, and it was such a festival, the festival of all festivals. Then the vrajavasis led by Krishna and Balaram circumambulated the Govardhan hill and that was the first parikrama. And since that time the greatest saints, simple farmers and devotees and even avatars have come to this place to worship Govardhan. It is considered the most conducive place for the awakening of bhakta in Sri Giriraj, Such a history.

When Lord Caitnaya Mahaprabhu came to Vrindavan, He came to Govardhan hill. He was embracing the stone, because He was seeing each one of them as the personal body of Krishna. That was just 500 years ago. So we can understand from physical perspective, Govardhan was looking pretty much the same today. The same stones which we see today are what Lord Caitanya was seeing , but He was in the height of his ecstatic love of Sri Radha. He was seeing the mountain itself as the body of Krishna and every single stone as the body of Krishna. He was embracing and weeping and out of His honor He would not walk on the Govardhan hill. Because He considered this is the body of My beloved Lord. éçvaraù paramaù kåñëaù, sac-cid-änanda-vigrahaù. This is an eternal spiritual truth, we are different from our body. This is the most fundamental principle of spiritual knowledge. You are not the body, you are eternal soul that gives consciousness and life to the body …
dehino ‘smin yathä dehe kaumäraà yauvanaà jarä.. The Gita tells.
The soul is passing through different changes from childhood to youthhood to old age and at the time of death, the atma or the living force moves to another body. The very basis of bondage and misery is that we are thinking I am this body and we are trying to find enjoyment by giving satisfaction to the body. Srila Prabhupada gives the example – It’s like having very nice cage for the bird and spending all time to decorate the cage and not feeding the bird. The bird is starving, dying and suffering as we are decorating the cage. That is human civilization as we know it. We work so hard for the physical and mental body, but we neglect the need of the soul. The atma is starving to taste the infinite sweet love for Krishna. The very propensity of the atma is to ecstatically feel the happiness of giving its whole love to Krishna and to give our whole love to every living being which are the part of Krishna.

But Krishna is His body becasue on spiritual level there is no materail temporary coverings of ignorance. Ishvara paramah krishnah saccidanandavigrahah. Krishna is the para Brahman, supreme brahman, Krishna is the paramatma, the supreme soul. His body is made out of pure spiritual substance. His body and Him there is no difference. Even in our liberated state in spiritual wolrd there is no difference between our bodies and our souls. Our souls have actually eternal, beautiful, loving form in relation to God’s supreme eternal form. So when Lord Caitanya was seeing Govardhan hill, He was seeing Krishna, His beloved. It wasn’t just a mater of making offense to Krishna by stepping on Him or being disrespectful. That’s a very primitive state of living by spiritual principles. But out of love, He couldn’t bear putting His feet on the beautiful body of His beloved. And Gopal or Srinathji, the murti of Madhavedra Puri, his param guru was on top of the Govardhan hill. This is the most prominent deity of our sampradaya. Krishna which was oringinally estblished by Vrajnabh, the son of Aniruddha and installed on top of Giriraj. Lord Caitanya heared about Him from his Guru. He was yearning and longing for darshan of Gopal. But still out of love for Giriraj, He could not go on that hill.

But the deity of Krishna is Krishna and in the role of a devotee Lord Caitanya was yearning for Krishna and Krishna was yearning for Lord Caitanya and since Lord Caitanya would not come to see Him out of love, the Lord came down to see Lord Caitanya out of love. He played a beautiful pastime where there was rumor that there was an army of invaders coming to Govardhan to destroy the deity. So the pujaris secretly brought Gopal off the hill. And as soon as He came to the ground level, Lord Caitanya was there to greet Him to a special little secret village. While Gopal was in that secret village, Lord Caitanya was worshipping Him offering Him His body, mind, love and words and dancing in sweet ecstasy and giving everyone Krishna inducing everyone in the village by joining them in the sankirtan of the holy names
Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare | Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare


{Done till this para}

As long as Srinathji was in the village Lord Caitanya stayed there. And when everyone understood it was a rumor they brought Krishna back…and when they came to the foot of Giriraj Lord Caitanya bowed down as gopal …and since that time 500 yrs ago those who follow Lord Caitanya the path of perfection is to follow in foot steps of great souls. None of the devotees of Lord Caitanya would go up on Govardhan hill. Other sampradayas do so, and its perfeclty fine for them to do so…but it is the enteur of our love to see how our previous acaryas and the beloved Lord taught us to show our love. Rupa Goswami, Sanatan Goswami, Jiva Goswami, Raghunath Das Goswami…Raghunath Das Goswami most of his life was at Radhakund. Sanatan Goswami lived a good portion of his life at Chakleshwar Mahadev temple at Manasi Ganga. Never did they even once go on top of the hill cirumabulted everyday and worshipped Krishna in the form of Giriraj. But Gopal was on top of the mountain but they would not go on top….Love can be a very mystical mysterious thing. Becaue love is something that springs from the very inner depths of our souls. It doesnt arise from the ever changing tides of our mind or intellect. So Srinathji, Gopal decided He was yearnig to see His devotees, so just like ..he came down to Mathura to hide over a month. So the goswamis they all lived there and just worshipped Sri Gopal to their hearts content until they brought Him back on top of the mountain.

Rupa Goswami has a bhajan kutir around Govardhan in Radhakund. Raghunath Das Goswami ,Sanatan Goswami, Gopal Bhatta Goswami, Raghunath Bhatta Goswami, Jiva Goswami. Narrotam Das Thakur, Srinivas acarya, Shyamananda pandit they went on a Govardhan parikrama with Raghava pandit who lived in a cave just near Govardhan hill. Vishwanath Chakravarti Thakur spent most of his life near Govardhan. Krishnadas Kaviraj Goswami wrote Sri Caitanya Caritamrita here at Govardhan. Many of the greatest vaishnav literatures of our goswamis and their descendent acaryas were written here at Govardhan. Bhakti Vinod Thakur, Bhakti Siddhanta Saraswati Thakur they had bhajan kutirs here near Govardhan and our own beloved Gurumaharaj, Srila Prabhupada whose disapperance day we are celebrating tomorrow, how much he taught us the sanctity of this holy place.
When his body was in such a state that he should not walk, could not sit up, he was in the very end of his body’s physical existance at that time, he told devotees he wanted to do Govardhan parikrama. 21km! They said Srila Prabhupada, you cant even walk, sit up. Take me on a bullokck cart. And his Doctor said in the first few mintues in the shaking of the ox cart he cant survive and Srila Prabhupada was “no,no take me i want to ..”
what is Govardhan aprikrama its not a ritual its an expression of love. To circumambulate Govardhan hill is a way of expressing our depths of gratitude and love to Giriraj…Sanatan Goswami wasnt just doing it for his spiritual purification he was doing it as a …the troubles it takes because that offering of love was so pleasing to Krishna Sanatan Goswami was willing to take so many effforts….Krishna is pleased, Krishna is worried about him He loved Krishna, Krishna loved him so much. You are too old …Sanatan Goswami said i promised Krishna in the heart I will do it every day….then the littel boy didnt reveal Himself as Krishna went on the hill and played his flute….every stone is as good …this was the nature of the relationship they had. These physical bodies from the perspective of bhakti the purpose is to be an instrument…or our intent to love.

Srila Prabhupada told us that you could express your love by your enthusiasm. Srila Prabhupada said if….


35 mins onwards


Srila Prabhupada told us that you can express your love by your enthusiasm.

Srila Prabhupada said, “If you are enthusiastic that is the way of expressing your love!”

Just like Giriraj Maharaj was saying, If somebody does something for you and they say I really don’t want to do this I don’t want to,  I have no happiness, I am not enthusiastic but I’m supposed to do it, so here take this. Will that give you satisfaction?

Well if just do things for Krishna because we have to, better then not doing it.

But if we are enthusiastic to please Krishna that’s the expression of love.

Somebody asked Srila Prabhupada “What if we don’t have enthusiasm?”

Srila Prabhupada said, “That doesn’t matter. Just act enthusiastically. Whether you feel it or not, just act enthusiastic, and someone may say acting enthusiasm is making show.

If you are acting enthusiastic because you want to get something out of it for your own selfish ego, then it is a show. If we act enthusiastic so that people think I’m a great devotee, I’m very advanced, I’m very special, I’m very blessed and empowered ,then that’s just a show.

But if we don’t feel enthusiasm but act enthusiastic simply because that act of enthusiasm will give pleasure to Krishna then that act of enthusiasm is actually an expression of our intent to love.

And through actions, through our body and our mind and our words, as ways to express our intent to love, that’s the way that we attract the mercy that brings that love.

In the Damodar Lila, which we were discussing the other day, Krishna’s mother was trying to bind him with that rope, and she was tying more and more and more ropes, but every time it was always the width of 2 fingers small.


What is it that will compensate for the rope of our love to actually bind Krishna?

Krishna binds us by the rope of his love and we in turn bind Krishna by the rope of our love.

Srila Vishwanath Chakravarty Thakur tells us that one of those fingers is the enthusiasm and sincerity of our efforts and when that it is there it attracts Krishna’s mercy which is the other finger. And that mercy is what actually removes the veil of Maya so that the natural eternal love that is within our heart, the Prema, awakens and manifests.


Maya is very strong.

“ …Mam Maya Duratyaya   “


This Maya consisting of the 3 modes of nature goodness, passion and ignorance is so powerful.

Guna means a rope. There are different kinds of ropes.

The Gunas are like ropes that keep us bound to our egos and to our selfish attachments and through them keep us bound to the miseries of our body and mind. The miseries caused by living beings, miseries caused by natural disturbances, birth after birth after birth.

But when we just take shelter of Krishna by Krishna’s mercy,

“Raga….  “


By just following these regulative principles of Bhakti with enthusiasm and sincerity we can attract the mercy of the Lord and by that mercy we can be rescued from these ropes of material existence. The Screen of illusion is removed


“Krishna ….”


When the sun rises, all darkness is naturally dispelled. Krishna is like the sun and Maya is like darkness, the illusion

When that sun rises, then we see who we really are, who we have always been

“Jeever Swaroop….”

We are eternal lovers of Krishna. We see Krishna. We see Krishna in our hearts. We see Krishna as the object of our love in every situation and in that state, this body, this mind and everything becomes a wonderful facility for devotional service, for Bhakti.

Within this world that we are living in, many of the deepest secrets of the spiritual world have been revealed to the world from here at Gowardhan hill. By Krishna himself, by Srimati Radharani and through their greatest loving devotees through their words, through their literature.

RAGHUNATH DAS GOSWAMI was given the Gowardhan sheela Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu. It was always moist with the tears of Chaitanya Mahaprabhu’s love. He kept it close to his heart for 3 yrs. continuously and out of his love for his devotee he gave that Sheela and Gunja Mala to RAGHUNATH DAS GOSWAMI.


RAGHUNATH DAS GOSWAMI considered, in giving me the Gowardhan sheela, he has given me eternal residence at Gowardhan hill and by given me the Gunj Mala he has given me the shelter of love of Srimati Radharani.

For RAGHUNATH DAS GOSWAMI there was nothing else that had any interest to him.

He already was a billionaire; young beautiful. He did not leave things out of frustration. He left everything behind because by associating with saints like Haridas Thakur, he tasted something so infinitely more meaningful and beautiful and satisfying in Krishna and his names.

That these things meant nothing for him,

People work so hard for money, for prestige, for property! The whole world is under that spell.

And in Kaliyuga, that’s practically that we all know.

But in the lives of these great Goswamis we find the whole another dimension and perspective of reality.

They considered a single speck of dust in Vrindavan to be more valuable than all the wealth and riches of the universe.

One time our Gurudev, Srila Prabhupada was in Denver, Colorado, in a beautiful park that the city obviously spent millions and millions of dollars to make so beautiful with lakes and flowers and gardens and bushes and trees and lawns

And Srila Prabhupada was walking through it with a few devotees. And he said “You see people are working so very very hard to maintain this place and we don’t do anything. We just come and enjoy it. But the enjoyment is not in owning something, because with proprietorship come so many anxieties.

I am a little swami; I go to people’s houses. Sometimes they let me stay somewhere on the floor in their home. Sometimes they give me more but I usually take just a little floor. And eating their food and sleeping and I am just happy but they are struggling like anything to maintain that place. And we little swamis and Brahmacari we just say Haribol, we have some kirtan there, we do some Hari Katha there, touch their babies heads, And I really believe we enjoy their houses probably a million times more than their houses.

So what is the wealth?



In regard to Srila RAGHUNATH DAS GOSWAMI, Chaitanya Charitamrita says that renunciation is the basic principle that sustains the lives of the followers of Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu and seeing that renunciation gives Lord Chaitanya Mahaprabhu such satisfaction. But what is that renunciation?

One time a devotee said to Srila Prabhupada “Prabhupada, I want to renounce everything.”

And Srila Prabhupada told him “Nothing is yours, so you have nothing to renounce.”

That was a striking reply and Srila Prabhupada said, “The only thing you have to renounce is the illusion that you have anything to renounce.”

“Yukta Vairagya” is what Rupa Goswami taught us. Srila Rupa Goswami was living under different trees every night, begging for some roti or some chitties but he was in the highest ecstasies of Gopis love for Krishna, but he taught us the principle of Yukta Vairagya.

Real renunciation is not just to give up things but to give up the ego and to give up the selfish enjoying spirit and to use whatever best we can serve Krishna.

One time Srila Prabhupada was in New Dwarka in Los Angeles. He had a very nice room that the devotees made for him. Devotees worked so hard to put beautiful original arts of Krishna leela. It was simple but so nice. And Srila Prabhupada was sitting with one of his disciple. He said “Do you remember I showed you my rooms at Radha Damodar temple. In those days it was just clay walls and clay floor.” He said “I long to be back there. But for me to stay here in this beautiful room is renunciation; because this is how I could best serve my Guru, this is how I can best reach peoples heart with Krishna’s message.”

Srila Prabhupada put so much energy to build temple in Mayapur, to build temple in Bombay, and Krishna Balaram temple. One of the followers was one of the leaders of construction.

And In those days, a foreign person working with these construction companies in Uttar Pradesh was really difficult. At every stage they were trying to cheat. There was so much negotiating and bargaining and then after negotiating and bargaining and the trucks on the on the way, they would weigh it and then they will take if off and sell it to somebody else on the way and come and say this is what you had bought And it was so much, death threats and everything . And this devotee was saying that everyone in Vrindavan is saying “Radhe Radhe! And I want to do that!”

The Goswamis, Why so much anxiety? And Srila Prabhupada explained, “Whatever way we could best serve that is the highest renunciation. Whether it means we are doing Dandavats parikrama around Gowardhan hill or whether it means we are flying in Jet Plane to speak in the British Parliament. Whatever way Krishna wants us to serve, renunciation is to serve with all our heart.

“Na dhanam …..”

Without expecting anything for ourselves, except the privilege to serve.


And Gowardhan is also named as Haridasavarya. Srimad Bhagavatam, Bhakti Vinod Thakur explains that the gopi who spoke this verse is Srimati Radharani. If anyone knows who is a devotee, then it is Srimati Radharani who is the very reservoir and source of all devotion and all love forever and she is saying that Giriraj Gowardhan is Haridasavarya, the best of all the devotees because he gives the greatest pleasure to Krishna, although Gowardhan is Krishna himself. Gowardhan like Lord Chaitanya is taking the role of Devotee as well.

And why is he the greatest devotee? Because he gives the greatest happiness to Krishna’s devotees.

“Mad Bhakta….”

Krishna tells one who worships me is not as dear to me as the one who pleases my devotees.

Gowardhan is giving fresh grass, that is fragrant and soft and nutritious and gives the best milk, because the cows when they eat the grass it tastes so good and it smells so good, and is so soft and it makes them so healthy and most of all, the only reason the cows are eating the grass is to give milk to Krishna and that grass fulfills the cows desire by creating the best milk.

The best way we can please a devotee is by facilitating them to please Krishna. And the best way we can facilitate devotees to please Krishna is to facilitate devotees to give pleasure to the other devotees. This is the message here.

And the rocks of Gowardhan hill, when the cows the calves the gopis the gopas Krishna Balaram; Those stones in the summer they are cool, in the winter they are warm and whenever any devotee steps on them they become soft like flower petal and the water, the waterfalls the lakes, they are like nectar, cool in the summer, warm in the winter and they are so nectarine that when the cows, the calves, the gopas the gopis who ever drinks it they roll in the dust in ecstasy and cry “It’s so delicious!” And what is that deliciousness? It does not just taste good to the tongue but Gowardhan, Haridasavarya love is so much enthused like the tears of his ecstasy into that water that when they drink, the nectar becoming enthused by Giriraj love for Radha and Krishna and by that association even Krishna become intoxicated And providing beautiful caves for Krishna’s devotees to relax

In this way Srimati Radharani was saying that the greatest service we can render is to please the Lords devotees. And Radharani, Lord Chaitanya is Krishna in the mood of Radha and he taught us this principle:

“gopir bhartur…..”

Highest aspiration, not to become a God, not to become a powerful mystic, but to be the servant of the servant of the servant of the servant of the Lord because there is nothing that gives greater happiness to Krishna  than that.

And Krishna tells in Gita one who gives this message, one who gives the nectar of pure devotional service, Bhakti, to the people of this world, to the devotees and to the people in general and who awakens their love for Krishna there is no one more dear to me.

Lord Chaitanya said I am a fruit vendor and I have so many of these fruits of love of God, I can’t give them out by myself and I am asking  my devotees, “Please help me to give them out and there is no one more dear to me than that!”

Tomorrow is the most holy day of Srila Prabhupada disappearance. We are speaking of Giriraj as Haridasavarya who Srimati Radharani is praising as greatest devotee.


What our beloved Guru Maharaj did, such unconditional compassion, selfless service. He was living in the very heart where Krishna is performing his Ras Lila in Seva Kunj and when we was just going on 70 yrs. old, he left that place to travel around the world 11 times. So much trouble! And dealing with people like us,. So much trouble but he never gave up. That was love. That is the spirit of Haridasavarya and today we are very honored that one the of the very dear most beloved exemplary disciples of Srila Prabhupada who has taken Srila Prabhupada’s mission of compassion into his heart of hearts is going to speak to us. One of my dearest friends! He is historically and to present day one of the greatest speakers of Krishna Consciousness, one of the greatest distributors of Srila Prabhupada transcendental books. Inspiring and teaching hundreds and thousands of others in that spirit! His own personal sadhana is incredible. He lives with wife, little home and yet everyday he does Giriraj puja, Shaligram puja, Gaur Nitai Puja, Prabhupada Puja for several hours. Incredible!

And then how is inspiring hundreds and hundreds of people because he has been inspired, he has understood with gratitude, the mercy that he has been given and Srila Prabhupada told us, if you want to repay me what I have given you just accept it and share it with others.

The origin of the highest realms of this expression is here at Gowardhan hill.

Srila Prabhupada in his last days said, “Take me on parikrama of Gowardhan”

“But you will die Srila Prabhupada!”

Srila Prabhupada said “What more glorious death would it be”

“But it will be so painful”

“It will be only happiness”

And then there was a dispute between two different camps of Prabhupada’s followers. Some were saying “He said we do it; we must to it!” and others were saying “We can’t bear to see him suffer and die like this! Impossible! He cannot do it!”

And there was very mystical situation. And one of Prabhupada’s dear God brother Krishanadas Babaji Maharaj came to see Srila Prabhupada. And Tamal Krishna Goswami Maharaj said “Prabhupada you are driving us crazy like this.”

And Prabhupada said to Krishna Das Babaji Maharaj, he said “See! How much they love me!”

He was just churning their love for him, churning their devotion for him. Different people have different moods with different understanding and Prabhupada accepted both of them and he was just churning that and at the same time it was his final lesson, the sacredness and importance of Gowardhan hill. Srila Prabhupada served Sri Giriraj by travelling around. He was doing Parikrama of the planet, spreading the congregational chanting of the holy name

Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare

Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare

And then in his last days in his heart of hearts, he performed the parikrama of Sri Giriraj.

And it is my great honor, and my great pleasure to introduce, one of my very dear most friends, god brothers, and one of my greatest inspirations.

Everyone please welcome him very enthusiastically…

Hari Bol!
