On June 29, 2013, Acharyadeva celebrated His Holiness Tamal Krishna Goswami’s appearance day with Giriraja Swami, Rtadhvaja Swami, and several other devotees at a home program in southern California.
Acharyadeva spoke for twenty minutes on Tamal Krishna Goswami’s historical and monumental contribution to ISKCON. He specifically noted TKG’s quality of innovation without deviation.
“First of all, I would like to thank His Holiness Giriraja Swami for very kindly inviting me, giving me the chance to have all this association and to purify myself by glorifying Prabhupada’s great devotee, Tamal Krishna Goswami. I’ve told personal TKG anecdotes so many times that I won’t punish you by repeating them here. But, what I do want to talk about is Tamal Krishna Goswami’s role in history.”
