By Vaishnavanghri Sevaka Das

Recently on the occasion of release function for Telugu (South Indian language) version of Srimad Bhagavatam, I wrote a special article in Bhagavad Darshan (Telugu BTG) describing the events leading to the completion of Srila Prabhupada’s Bhagavatam. How faithfully the humble disciples of Srila Prabhupada took up the unfinished task of their Spiritual master on their shoulders and thereby became the special recipients of Sri Guru’s mercy was narrated in that article. Srimad Bhagavatam is the heart-line or backbone to Krishna Consciousness movement. When the founder acharya entered the eternal pastimes of Sri Krishna leaving Bhagavatam work unfinished, we can simply imagine the persons who ensured that the nectar of Srimad Bhagavatam is made available in full to the mankind must be how much magnanimous and kind hearted. Conservation of treasure of Bhakti given by acharya is undoubtedly a great task. However completing the unfinished task of an acharya for the deliverance of entire mankind is a supremely glorious task. Sriman Gopiparanadhana Prabhu is one of the members of such distinguished, august, accomplished vaishnava group who completed the left-out portion of Srimad Bhagavatam translation. Even before the ink is not dried in the article glorifying them in Bhagavad Darshan, it is heart breaking to remember Sriman Gopiparanadhana Prabhu in this manner on his permanent departure from the material world.

Being the most fortunate person, by the mercy of my spiritual master and blessings of Sri Guruparampara, in translating entire Srimad Bhagavatam in Telugu language I know very well the great service rendered by H H Hridayananda Das Goswami Maharaja, Sriman Gopiparanadhana Prabhu and Sri Dravida Das Prabhu. Keeping aloof from egoism, always resting at Spiritual master’s lotus feet, at the same time employing the practical Bhagavatam knowledge received from their Gurudeva they achieved incredible success in Bhagavatam translation project. But, when I read the memories of Sri Dravida Prabhu regarding Sriman Gopiparanadhana Prabhu my attachment and reverence to Sri Gopiparanadhana Prabhu increased multifold. The great commentary work on 87th chapter of Tenth Canto, namely Prayers by the Personified Vedas, which is like an ocean of siddhanta, as an example would stand tall for the absolute Bhagavatam knowledge of Sriman Gopiparanadhana Prabhu.

Srimad Bhagavatam is the lifeline for Krishna bhakti. It is the life-air for Krishna Consciousness movement. Sriman Gopiparanadhana Prabhu, the glorious servant of Srimad Bhagavatam, who worked for the completion of the unfinished task of Gurudeva, would be remembered by the people as long as Srimad Bhagavatam is there, that is for next ten thousand years.

An attempt to study Srimad Bhagavatam with complete devotion and attachment, rededicating ourselves to Srimad Bhagavatam, will be our humble obeisances at the lotus feet of this great vaishnava. All glories to the glorious servant of Srimad Bhagavatam - Sriman Gopiparanadhana Prabhu!!!
