102 Years Of Pujyapad Sri Srimad B.P. Puri Goswami
BY SWAMI B.A. PARAMADVAITI
EDITORIAL, Oct 13 (VNN) Sri Sri Guru Gauranga Jayatah!
Respected Vaisnavas, dandavat pranams.
It is our extreme pleasure to share with you the news of today's auspicious occasion of the 102 th Appearance-day of our most worshipable Pujyapad Sri Srimad Bhakti Promode Puri Goswami. Srila B.P. Puri Goswami is the seniormost disciple of Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakura who is still present on this planet and he is the president of the 'Visva Vaisnava Raja Sabha'. His simplicity and humility together with his high learning and realizations are augmenting the sweetness and love that emanates from his divine personality.
'The Heart of Krsna', the famous book authored by Srila Puri Goswami gives us also a glimpse into the heart of Maharaja, who being fully aware of our mentality of criticizing others, quotes various historical examples in order to protect us from the danger of Vaisnava-aparadha. Like the Supreme Lord expresses Himself: "I am in the heart of my devotees and the devotees are in my heart. Only by adoring my beloved devotees can you conquer My heart."
Srila Puri Goswami is presently in his math in Jagannatha Puri. His health is stable and though Maharaja did not talk the last days, he is giving darshans mornings and evenings.
The pure devotee lives in the heart of Sri Krsna and knows the heart of Krsna. So we can say, Srila Puri Goswami lives in the heart of Krsna and knows the heart of Krsna. Heart to heart relations to such a sadhu are our sole protection. Such relations are our real wealth, loosing it, will be the greatest suffering.
Swami B.A. Paramadvaiti,
12th October 99, Sri Gopinatha Gaudiya Math, Jagannatha Puri, India
