By 1972, His Holiness Bhanu Swami Maharaja had already earned credit from Srila Prabhupada for his exact Sanskrit pronunciation, expertise in cooking and excellence in deity worship. He also began to translate Srila Prabhupada's books into Japanese.
A scholar in Sanskrit and Bengali, Bhanu Swami has translated more than fifty significant works of the Gaudiya Vaisnava canon. Many of these works are commentaries from primary members of the Gaudiya sampradaya.
Bhanu Swami is a quiet achiever and has studied a variety of disciplines including martial arts, Reiki healing, Carnatic music (specifically veena). He is a reputed astrologer.
Bhanu Swami's depth of scholarship has enabled him to create presentations on topics like karma, reincarnation, yoga and Srimad Bhagavatam. He continues with this translation service to this day, giving us the nectar from the Bengali and Sanskrit works of the previous Vaisnava acaryas to enhance our understanding of the Gaudiya Vaisnava philosophy. He is also a member of the Governing Body Commission (GBC) of ISKCON.
