Letter of Appreciation to Sivarama Swami — 2019
Dear Sivarama Maharaja,
Please accept our humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada.
It is impossible to put into words your contributions to the GBC Body in over three decades of service.
We have leaders who are expert managers and we have leaders who are deeply immersed in Krsna consciousness, thus bringing another sort of expertise to management. You, however, are that very
rare Vaisnava who is a brilliant manager yet deeply Krsna conscious, committed to your service in Srila Prabhupada’s mission yet conscious of the needs of others, philosophically astute, yet
humorous and lighthearted.
There is scarcely a committee or project that has not benefitted from your input. And whenever a new topic arises, yours is often the first input we seek out.
It is an understatement to say that a vacancy will be felt on the GBC Body in light of your retirement.
We pray that after taking time to focus on recuperating your health, you will consider giving us your association again on the GBC Body.
Thank you very much, Maharaja, for your association, wisdom, friendship, and dedication.
Madhu Sevita Das
(GBC Executive Committee, on behalf of the GBC Body)
