Krti-Ratna (Jewel Among Guru Sevakas)
Look Inside the Book
Description
Editors’ preface

We were privileged to witness time and again how Sri Srimad Bhaktivedanta Narayana Goswami Maharaja (Srila Gurudeva) was always extremely eager to extol the superlative character and precepts of his beloved gurudeva, Sri Srimad Bhakti Prajnama Kesava gosvami Maharaja, one of the foremost disciples of Sri Srimad Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakura Prabhupada.

It is therefore with the since hope of bringing Srila Gurudeva joy that we present Krti-ratna: Jewel among Guru-sevakas on the occasion of the 50th disappearance day of his gurudeva, who is the object of his deepest love and highest veneration.

The book is divided into four parts. Parts 1 and 2 consist of articles and letters by Sri Srimad Bhakti Prajnana Kesava Goswami Maharaja (hereafter referred to as Paramagurudeva. Or our “grandfather guru“). Part 3 consists of words of tribute by his godbrothers and a godsister, and Part 4 consists of homage’s by his own disciples.

A word of explanation about the letters: most of them were published in Sri Gaudiya-patrika (in Bengali); letter 43 was published in Sri Bhagatava-patrika (in Hindi); and letters 28 and 40 were submitted separately to Paramagurudeva’s Patravali (a Book of his letters). Published by Gaudiya Vedanta Samiti, and were not published in the patrikas. In those publications, names of recipients and persons discussed were for the most part omitted.

In his letters, Sometimes Paramagurudeva referred to Bengali calendar dates and sometimes to English dates. Jyestha refers to May –June; Asadha to June-July; Sravana to July-August; Bhadra to August-September , Asvina to September-October, Karika to October-November; Pausa to December-January; Magha to January-February; and Caitra to March- April.

We pray to all Sarasvata Vaisnavas, the immeasurably powerful and merciful commanders of Sri Caitanya Mahapravh’s army, that they forever give us shelter at their lotus feet. We beg the reader to forgive us for any inadvertent errors.
