Escape the bonds of karma… ...

I first met Gopala Krishna at his wedding in Boston in 1970. I came to know him much better when Prabhupada placed him on the GBC in 1975. Gopala Krishna Goswami truly possessed an extraordinary array of godly qualities — kind, devoted to Prabhupada and Krishna, fearless, determined, always grasping the essence in devotional service, a faithful friend, a humble servant of the servant of Lord Krishna.

Lord Krishna explains in the Gita 8.6 that having cultivated a state of consciousness throughout one’s life, one surely attains that state. Gopala Krishna Goswami tirelessly, constantly, devotedly cultivated love for Krishna and loving service to Krishna. Even as we lament his loss, we celebrate his exemplary, victorious, glorious life.
