All Glories to Srila Prabhupada!

It is only possible to deliver a conditioned jiva from Maya,

By divine intervention of God.

To a realm that is higher;

Ecstatically deep and broad.

An ocean of liquid love!

In His mercy, to bring us there,

He sent us Srila Prabhupada.

Sri Krsna Caitanya desired to moisten the dried-up souls.

To acheive it,

He not only comes Himself, But Nitai-Balarama empowered Srila Prabhupada,

To bountiful conceive it.

A world encircling garland of prema-nama-sankirtana!

Forty-four years ago this year, His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada left this world for the divine abode of Sri Krishna and His pastimes.

We are brought to tears no longer having his association in our midst.

Today is the disappearance day of Srila Rupa Gosvami, a direct disciple of Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu whom Mahaprabhu entrusted with the order and the power to present the science of Krishna consciousness in books. All the acharyas in our line after Rupa Gosvami are considered rupanugas, followers of Rupa Gosvami. And much of the Krishna consciousness movement is based on Rupa Gosvami’s teachings and example.

Sri Sanatana Gosvami appeared in 1488, five years before Sri Rupa Gosvami, in a Sarasvata brahmana family in Bengal. Sanatana and his two brothers, Rupa and Anupama, were always absorbed in bhava bhakti from early childhood. Remembering Vrndavana, they named the forests in which they played after Vraja’s twelve forests (Talavana, Madhuvana, Kamyavana, Mahavana). They called their favorite bathing ponds Radha-kunda and Syama-kunda.
