About this blog

Shrila B.V. Tripurari SwamiTripurari Swami, also known as Swami B.V. Tripurari, is an American author, poet, and Vaishnava guru. Tripurari was born in 1949 in Teaneck, New Jersey. Tripurari met his initiating guru, A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, in the spring of 1972. Tripurari relates that he felt as though he had met a long-lost friend, as Prabhupada blessed him with his all-knowing glance. Over the years that followed, Prabhupada showered Tripurari with affection and repeatedly expressed his appreciation for Tripurari's selfless service and ability to inspire others. In 1974 Prabhupada instructed Tripurari in a widely circulated letter, "So you organize freely. You are the incarnation of book distribution. Take the leadership and do the needful." Accordingly, Tripurari has set an example of one who is independently thoughtful and capable of making an insightful literary contribution to the world. Before accepting sannyasa in 1975, Tripurari Swami was known as Tripurari dasa. Shortly before Prabhupada's death, he suggested that, should the need arise, his students could receive further instruction from his "godbrother", B.R. Sridhara. Tripurari was present when Prabhupada gave this instruction, however, it was not until several years later, in the midst of the confusion that followed Prabhupada's death, that they would affect the course of Tripurari's spiritual pursuit. Tripurari expresses his experience of hearing from and serving Sridhara thus: "With the setting of the sun of the manifest pastimes of our beloved preceptor, Shrila A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, the world became dark. Then suddenly in the shadows of the night the reflected light of the moonlike discourse of Shrila B.R. Sridhara Deva Goswami flooded the path with new light and dynamic insight that illumined the inner landscape, leading me to the soul of Shrila Prabhupada and Gaudiya Vaisnavism." The association and instructions of B.R. Sridhara profoundly affected Tripurari, and under his guidance, Tripurari began initiating his own students in 1985.

Трипурари Свами, также известен как Свами Б.В. Трипурари, - американский писатель, поэт и вайшнавский гуру. Родился 12 марта 1949 года в городе Тинек в штате Нью-Джерси, США. В 1971 году присоединился к Международному обществу сознания Кришны и в 1972 году стал учеником Бхактиведанта Свами Прабхупады, получив от него духовное имя Трипурари дас. Затем активно занимался проповеднической деятельностью в США, распространяя вайшнавскую духовную литературу. Прабхупада называл его «инкарнацией распространения книг», и Трипурари видел свою главную роль в пропуляризации вайшнавской духовной литературы. В 1975 году Трипурари дас принял от Прабхупады санньясу (уклад жизни в отречении) и титул «свами». После смерти Прабхупады в 1977 году, Трипурари Свами ушёл из ИСККОН и принял духовное наставничество Б.Р. Шридхары Госвами, духовного брата Прабхупады из Гаудия-матха. В 1985 году Трипурари Свами основал вайшнавскую религиозную организацию «Гаудия-вайшнавское общество» и, с благословения Шридхары Госвами, стал дикша-гуру и начал принимать учеников.
