Today was Gunagrahi Maharaja’s memorial program in Vrindavan, and I wrote him the following letter: 

My dear Gunagrahi das Goswami Maharaja,

Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada, to your lifelong service to him, and to your divine departure to his lotus feet.

When you were leaving Dallas to go to India in the face of your cancer, you gave me the opportunity to see you off.

When you were traveling in India and dealing with so many issues and developments, you gave me the opportunity to communicate with you regularly.

When you returned to Vrindavan to stay, you allowed me to accommodate you and your staff in my house in Raman Reti, where you instituted your wonderful nightly kirtans, and in other places in my charge.

And when you were ready to leave your body, you gave me the opportunity to serve you indirectly when you moved to the Bhaktivedanta Hospice, which I helped establish.

Now you have gone to Srila Prabhupada, to serve him and his lords, and I pray that you will give me the opportunity to serve you there too.

Maharaja, I love you.

Hare Krishna.

With appreciation, gratitude, and love,

your eternal, aspiring servant,

Giriraj Swami
