50th Sannyasi Anniversary Celebration

It is with great happiness that we announce that on May 15th, on Lord Nrsimhadeva’s appearance day, we will be celebration H.H. Hridayananda das Goswami’s 50th anniversary of taking sannyasi.

In 1972, H.D.Goswami personally accepted the order of renounced life, sannyasa, from Srila Prabhupada. As he accepted this great responsibility, Srila Prabhupada blessed him, “Lord Nrisimhadeva will also protect you, as He protected Prahlada.”

Join us to honor his amazing, widespread and exemplary service to Srila Prabhupada for over half a century. As a visionary who has always seen ahead of his time, H.D.Goswami has given ISKCON priceless contributions, like finishing the translation and commentary of Srila Prabhupada’s Srimad-Bhagavatam, presenting the essence of his guru’s teachings without ethnical barriers, and vividly showing us how to think independently but remaining faithful to the purity of our bhakti yoga tradition. His sincere dedication to Lord Caitanya’s movement and academic accomplishments have provided him with a strong foundation to accomplish all of the above, and for that we thank him for being a pillar in our society.

The celebration will take place over three days from May 13-15 in Malibu, California.
