Dear Disciples and Followers of Sripada BV Narayana Maharaja,
Please accept our humble obeisances. All glories to Sri Guru and Sri
We, the Executive Committee of ISKCON’s Governing Body Commission, wish to
hereby express our bereavement on hearing of the passing of Sripada Narayana
As a disciple of His Divine Grace Bhaktiprajnana Kesava Gosvami Maharaja,
who was the Godbrother and sannyasa guru of His Divine Grace A.C.
Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, Founder-Acarya of ISKCON, Sripada Narayana
Maharaja had been a long time acquaintance of our Srila Prabhupada. He
assisted him in his early days in the United States, assistance for which
Srila Prabhupada expressed his appreciation.
At this time we remember Sripada Narayana Maharaja as a dedicated and
powerful preacher. He traveled around the world to deliver the message of
Srimad-Bhagavatam and spread Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu’s mission. He also
translated important Vaisnava texts.
Sripada Narayana Maharaja lived a long and fruitful life in devotional
service and was an inspiration to many. We pray the Lord will give comfort
to his disciples and followers in this difficult time.
On behalf of all the members of ISKCON, we offer him our respectful
vancha-kalpatarubhyas ca krpa-sindhubhya eva ca
patitanam pavanebhyo vaisnavebhyo namo namah
The GBC Executive Committee,
Madhu Sevita das
Hrdaya Caitanya das
Bhakti Caitanya Swami
