Srila Mahavishnu Goswami Maharaj Vyasa Puja 2016 - Part 3

Hare Krishna Prabhujis and Matajis,
Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada and Srila Gurudeva.

This is in continuation of the previous offering titled "Srila Mahavishnu Goswami Maharaj Vyasa Puja 2016", wherein we were hearing some of the glorifications of Maharaj, which were shared by the students of Sri Prahlad International School in Sri Sri Radha Neel Madhav dham, Rajkot on the auspicious occasion of his Vyasa Puja. Now we shall hear further.

3. Soumya Ramani Prabhuji (studying in Std VII): Maharaj left everything in his life to serve ISKCON and to worship Krishna. He spent all his time for Krishna and made ISKCON famous not only in Rajkot, but in whole of Saurahstra region. He was a very good preacher. He started the Sri Prahlad International School and taught Bhagavad Gita to the students of Prahlad school as well. Maharaj gave nice classes on Bhagavatam and always had a smiling face. He said, "Keep trust in Krishna. Every moment, He will be with you." 

Today we miss him a lot. But his blessings are always there upon us. Though I am naughty, I never neglect my studies in school. This is also one of the extraordinary unique quality of our loving Maharaj. He was always cheerful and joyful with each and every person who came in contact with him. He always spoke with others very nicely and changed their moroseness to happiness. At the same time, he never neglected his studies or responsibilities regarding others. That one quality, I really want to develop in our life. I always want to do my duties honestly.

4. Devanshu Prabhuji (studying in Std VII): Today is a special occasion of the appearance day of Maharaj who has blessed us with this school where we have daily prayers for half an hour, Deity darshan and we learn nice values, chant Mahamantra. Maharaj always insisted that we should Krishna in the center of all our activities. Maharaj used to tell us how his mother used to ask him to offer even his new dhoti to Krishna first before wearing. When he came in touch with Srila Prabhupada's books he started studying them for 3 to 4 hours daily. Maharaj had been tirelessly traveling around the world 12 times and spread Bhagavatam's message to all. He conducted Bhagavatam saptahs and used to take classes for even 4 to 6 hours. He always washed his own clothes and cooked his own food daily. When I was young, Maharaj always used to talk to me lovingly by touching my cheeks. Now I miss him very much.

Krishna willing we shall continue to hear further glories of Maharaj in the subsequent offering.

Hare Krishna.
Thank you very much.
Yours in service of Srila Prabhupada and Srila Gurudeva,
Sudarshana devi dasi.
