Tamal Krishna Goswami 
Will Be Missed

Haribol! Please accept my most humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada!

I saw HH Tamal Krishna Goswami for the first time in ‘97, when he visited Israel. At the time, I was being introduced to Krishna Consciousness. I heard HH in a series of lectures. One day, in one of his lectures, HH talked about being committed to Krishna Consciousness and how we should follow the regulative principles and chant daily. That evening I chanted 16 rounds for the first time. By the grace of HH Tamal Krishna Goswami I chanted 16 rounds for about six months, a custom I only recently went back to.

HH autographed his book for me, Yoga in the 21st Century, a book I highly recommend for giving to any new devotee. I had the privilege to watch HH initiate four devotees. During the initiation, HH talked about Israel's place in the three major religions in this world and said that by these new devotees it might become a sacred place to the devotees of Krishna as well. I could feel I was in the presence of a great man, and this experience truly made me decisive in the pursuance of spiritual life.

The announcement of his death truly filled me with deep sorrow. I wish I had the chance to associate with HH Tamal Krishna Goswami, learn more from him, and thank him for what he already done for me.

HH Tamal Krishna Goswami, a great soul indeed, will truly be missed by us all.
