Dear Devotees

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

We would like to give a brief account of the 56th Sri Vyasapuja celebration of HH Tamal Krsna Goswami in Mayapur yesterday, June 28th, 2002.

As usual, the day before, devotees celebrated Adivas Ceremony in 876 in the Conch Bldg in his quarters, with puspanjali, kirtans, and glorification.

During the Vyasapuja day (28-6-02), the ceremony was celebrated as follows, according to a meeting with all the disciples present, and the services were distributed among all of them. Manasi Ganga dd performed arati during mangala arati at the Samadhi site, kirtan was lead by Shyamaraman Das, then chanting rounds around the samadhi until the time for darsan arati in the main temple. Afterwards devotees went back to the samadhi and did gurupuja to HH Tamal Krishna Goswami, and that arati was done by Ali krsna dd.

At 8:30 am, devotees went to the quarters in the Conch Bldg, and arranged for HH Tamal Krishna Goswami's Bhagavatam class, presenting a video of HH delivering a lecture in 1997 (topic : Bali Maharaja surrenders to Vamana deva). Then there was the offering of the Vyasapuja book (done by Nitaigauracandra pr.) with homages from all over the world presented to Maharaja by Manasi Ganga dd., followed by the homages from Godbrothers, disciples, and well-wishers, from 11:00 am till 1:00 pm. For this program, Aghavit Das was the master of ceremonies (he was traveling with HH Tamal Krishna Goswami when the accident occurred and was hospitalized for a long time. Now he has returned to his duties in the youth forum in Calcutta). Among Srila Prabhupada’s disciples present were Their Graces Jananivas prabhu, Pankajangri prabhu, and Padmalocan prabhu.

At 1:00 pm, the Gurupuja was performed after offering prasadam to HH Tamal Krishna Goswami from Sri Sri Radha Madhava; Jagannath, Baladeva, Subhadra; Panca tattva Bhagavan: and Nrishimhadeva. After that, there was a kirtan (Samsaradavana), and the environment was so ecstatic that many of his disciples felt his presence in the room while kirtan was going on. After that, devotees went to the samadhi for kirtan and arati to HH Tamal Krishna Goswami. Finishing the ceremony, all the devotees from Mayapur community went to honor prasada at the big kitchen for this auspicious celebration of the 56th Sri Vyasapuja of HH Tamal Krishna Goswami.

Your servant,
Tusti Mohan Krsna dasa
