The honourable late Sri Purushottam Maharaj ji
Vrindavan, 2018.02.01 (with inputs from Anjana Aggarwal): The first anniversary of Jagatguru Shri Chaitanya Sampradayacharya Purushottam Goswami Maharaj’s entering in the Nitya Seva (eternal service) of Shri Radha Raman is being celebrated at Gambhira, Jai Singh Ghera in Vrindavan .
Maharaj ji was a Sevait from the Sri Radharaman temple lineage of Goswamis, who trace their ancestry to Sri Gopala Bhatta goswami, a close disciple of Sriman Chaitanya Mahaprabhu. In his honour, discourse on Shrimad Bhagavatam ais being given by Shri Venu Gopal Goswami Ji Maharaj at Jai Singh Ghera from 1-10 February from 3 to 6 pm. The program began today with 108 Brahmin priests reciting shlokas from the Srimad Bhagavatam.
Sri Purushottam Maharaj was an energetic leader, a far sighted personality and the eldest in the current lineage of the Goswamis of Sri Radharaman temple. Maharaj ji was the epitome of selfless service to Shriji, whether it was by Bhog seva or Raga seva.
Especially during the auspicious days of Holi, his excitement and enthusiasm to sing the songs glorifying Shriji’s transcendental pastimes with Shrimati Radharani was a source of inspiration to all those who desire to please Shriji through seva.
Maharaj ji had utmost devotion for the lotus feet of Sri Govardhan and kept up the practice of regular parikarma until his last days on earth. Maharaj ji entered into the eternal lila of Sri Priyalal ji under the guidance of Sri Gunmanjari ji one year ago.
It was Maharaj ji’s desire to see pure Yamuna water flows again on the ghats of Vrindavan. Whoever he met, he always asked to work for the cause of Yamuna.
We pray to our most revered Sri Purushottam Goswami ji Maharaj to guide us into the bhakti marg and show us the way to the lotus feet of Sri Radha Raman lal ju.
