Disappearance Day of Srila Rupa Gosvami

by Srimati Jadurani devi dasi [Syamarani didi]

[27 August 2004]

Today, as he did every year at this time, Srila Narayana Maharaja took the devotees - from Vrndavana, Delhi and other cities in India, and from abroad - to Sri Radha-Damodara Temple, to glorify Srila Rupa Gosvami. Sitting by Srila Rupa Gosvami's bhajana kutira in the coutyard of the temple, the devotees sing bhajanas, offered arati, and heard Srila Maharaja's words of glorification.

Then, in the evening, Srila Maharaja and many prominent saints and Vaisnava scholars from Vrndavana and Mathura gave discourses about Srila Rupa Gosvami's life and contribution to the world's spiritual welfare.
