Introduction

This booklet is a collection of recollections and reflections on His Divine Grace Srila A. C. Bhaktivedanta Svami Maharaja, our Srila Prabhupada, from one of his earliest siksa followers and friends, Srila Bhaktivedanta Narayana Gosvami Maharaja. The accounts of his association with Srila Prabhupada span over thirty years, since they first met in 1947.

Srila Narayana Gosvami Maharaja was happy to share his fond memories of this long-standing and affectionate relationship, and excerpts from a variety of his informal interviews and statements have been included here. We have lightly edited his English, because English is not his native tongue. Had he presented these memories and appreciations in Hindi, the details and heartfelt explanations would have been still more eloquent and detailed.

Srila Prabhupada is a nitya-siddha devotee. He never had to advance from a conditioned life to pure Krsna consciousness. Therefore, it may be noted that the descriptions of Srila Prabhupada given by Srila Narayana Gosvami Maharaja are in relation to his nara-lila (human-like pastimes) and have nothing to do with this material environment. Such pastimes are only meant to help instruct others how to advance in Krsna consciousness.

Our sincere hope is that in reading this booklet, the worldwide audience of devotees will receive enlivenment by hearing inspirational memories about our maha-bhagavata-guru from one of his most intimate admirers, another maha-bhagavata guru. Where this humble effort is not of the highest quality, or if it fails in any way to properly represent Srila Prabhupada or Srila Narayana Gosvami Maharaja, we beg the forgiveness of the merciful Vaisnavas. We pray that our most beloved Srila Prabhupada will be pleased with our desire to more deeply discover and glorify his transcendental personality, pastimes, and sankirtana mission, and the mission of his spiritual successor, Srila Narayana Gosvami Maharaja.

Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
