ENDNOTES

1. Rays of the Harmonist. Vol. 2 No. 1. "The Mission of Srila Kesava Maharaja". Translation from Hindi article in Bhagavat Patrika. Feb, 1998 by Srila Narayana Maharaja. pg. 26-27.

". . . During this unfavorable situation, around 1938-1940, Sri Krtiratna Prabhu had spent a few days in Prayag at Sri Rupa Gaudiya Matha. There he met Srimad Abhaya Carana Bhaktivedanta. These two Godbrothers had been intimate friends since 1922. Sri Abhaya Carana's business in Prayaga was in an unstable condition. . . In spite of this he still remained enthusiastic to preach the message of bhagavad-bhakti, and in fact both Godbrothers were very enthusiastically preaching the message of suddha-bhakti in Prayaga and Allahabad. . . .

During this same period in 1940, Sri Vinoda-bihari Brahmacari came from Mayapur to the town of Navadvipa along with pujyapada Srimad Bhakti Raksaka Sridhara Maharaja, Sripada Narahari Brahmacari "Seva-vigraha", Sripada Biracandra Prabhu, and some other Godbrothers. At Navadvipa, he founded Sri Devananada Gaudiya Math in a rented house in the locality of Tegharipada, and from there started the preaching of suddha-bhakti.

On 7 April 1940, the day of aksaya trtiya, Pujyapada Sri Vinod-bihari Brahmacari Krti-ratna founded Sri Gaudiya Vedanta Samiti at 33/2 Bosapada Lane, Calcutta, in a rented house. At that time Pujyapada Abhaya Caranaravinda Bhaktivedanta, Sri Nrsimhananda Brahmacari, Sripada Krsna-karunya Brahmacari, Sripada Sajjan-sevaka Brahmacari (the present acarya of the Samiti, Srila Vamana Maharaja) and many other Vaisnavas were present."

TRANSLATION

1
The lotus feet of our spiritual master are the only way by which we can attain pure devotional service. I bow to his lotus feet with great awe and reverence. By his grace one can cross the ocean of material suffering and obtain the mercy of Krsna.

2
My only wish is to have my consciousness purified by the words emanating from his lotus mouth. Attachment to his lotus feet is the perfection that fulfills all desires.

3
He opens my darkened eyes and fills my heart with transcendental knowledge. He is my Lord birth after birth. From him ecstatic prema emanates; by him ignorance is destroyed. The Vedic scriptures sing of his character.

4
Our spiritual master is the ocean of mercy, the fiend of the poor, and the lord and master of the devotees. O master! Be merciful unto me. Give me the shade of your lotus feet. Your fame is spread all over the three worlds.
