About the Author
Śrī Śrīmad Bhaktivedānta Nārāyaṇa Gosvāmī Mahārāja took his divine birth in Tiwārīpura, Bihar, India, in 1921. He met his gurudeva
, Śrī Śrīmad Bhakti Prajñāna Keśava Gosvāmī Mahārāja in February 1946, and dedicated his life to serving him. His gurudeva
instructed him to translate the writings of prominent Vaiṣṇavas into Hindi. Taking this command to heart, he worked continuously throughout his life and published more than fifty sacred texts.
For years he travelled throughout India teaching bhakti
, or loving devotion to God. Between 1996 and 2010, he circled the globe thirty times, touching the lives of thousands and clarifying the conception of pure bhakti
, the sole means to realize our relationship with the Supreme Personality of Godhead, Śrī Kṛṣṇa.
