HH Bhakti Madhurya Govinda Goswami was strongly loyal to Srila Prabhupada and ISKCON. His classes were very engaging and I have heard that no one in the audience could go to sleep. He had made a vibrant preaching temple ISKCON Punjabi Bagh in Delhi as his base. He was always in a preaching mood and actively lived his life preaching Krishna Consciousness. In the recent past he went to Bangladesh to preach. The Bangladesh devotees were very enlivened by his presence among them.

He would attend the Mayapur Festival every year and join the Parikrama. He would always carry his dieites with him. He accompanied me on Ganga Preaching Safari in 2003. During that trip, he was a strong, inspiring presence to others members of the Safari. We would have large audiences at our preaching programs and he gave very enthusiastic lectures and also gave his time for one to one preaching.

Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakura said that one who has life will preach. From HH Bhakti Madhurya Govinda Maharaja’s preaching we can see that he was always full of life.

His presence will be very much missed by all of us. It would be good for all those who had his association to keep the fire of his preaching spirit alive.

Your servant
