It is no wonder that we can find so many scripture references of devotees glorifying one another. Like H.D.Goswami said, “…feel completely free to appreciate Prabhupada in many forms, not only in his personal lectures and books, but also in the devotees, the communities, the dances, the songs, the loving spiritual relationships that actually he inspired.”
So it’s in that spirit – appreciating the loving spiritual relationships Srila Prabhupada left us – that today, devotees around the world celebrate the Vyasa-puja of H.H. Hridayananda dasa Goswami by honoring his 48 years of service to Srila Prabhupada, with a profound understanding of shastra, kindness and equality to all around him, and deep dedication to his spiritual master’s mission – to spread Krishna consciousness to the Western countries.
This year, as the years before, we’ve compiled offerings sent by disciples, god-family and well-wishers from around the globe in a beautiful e-book, and printed a deluxe copy to present to H.D.Goswami. Thank you to all who sent your heartfelt offerings.
Of course, this wouldn’t be possible without our wonderful and dedicated 2017 Vyasa-Puja Book Team. So keeping up with the “honoring the vaishnavas” theme, we would like to acknowledge Jahnavi Held (CO), Danesh Das (Denmark), Shanti Day (FL), and Emily Galucho (FL), for organizing, receiving, and cataloging the submissions and designing the e-book.
We would also like to send our deepest gratitude to those who have sent us photos and videos of H.D.Goswami during his 2017 tour. Thanks to all of you we can keep the rest of the world updated on H.D.Goswami’s latest programs.
Last but not least, we would like to give a very special thank you to all of the devotees involved in the making of the new HDGoswami.com. We are extremely grateful to Greg Krier (CA), who spent countless hours developing and designing the new website, Ali Krishna dd (Japan), who has provided us with invaluable support during the development of the new website, to Dharma Das who has maintained the Lecture Database, giving us the gift of accessing years of priceless knowledge, and to Gaura Das, who has catalogued most of H.D.Goswami’s lectures, allowing us to upload the database in user-friendly format.
We look forward to better serving our community, so if you have any suggestions or questions please feel free to send us a message through our contact page.
