On the DVD that accompanies the "Darshan" book BBT made a few years ago, there is a track made by Krsna Prema that is called "The Future is Here". It is about the Panca-tattva installation in Mayapur and the background sound is Srila Gurudev reciting Sad-Goswami-Astaka! We have found a picture that seems to be of Srila Gurudev during the opening of the temple in Vrindavan. I enclose it. It is taken from a video recording of the event that is included in ITV's set of the complete Srila Prabhupada DVD-library.

Thanks Sunniva! If anyone else has any old pictures of Srila Gour Govinda Maharaja that they come across please write us or post them here. (Madhavananda Das)

Srila Gour Govinda Maharaja's sannyas ceremony. He can be seen throwing grains in the fire to the right of the microphone stand.

Sannyasa ceremony again. Maharaja can be seen in the middle of the photo. The top of his head is truncated off.

Srila Gour Govinda Maharaja left his griha when he was 44 years old... He had raised a family and been a teacher and then a school headmaster... He had always been a vaishnava and had always been wearing tilaka on his forehead in the course of his activities. He was taking every opportunity to speak to his pupils about Krishna but was longing for ... Ver másthe day when he could dedicate his whole life to preaching Krishna consciousness... He then travelled all over India, from south to north and had put Vrindavana at the end of his list... He thought: "If I haven't found the Vaishnava Guru who would give me sannyasa by then, Lord Krishna will surely bless me in Vrindavana...". He met many saddhus and Gurus, associated with many a member of the Gaudiya matha... Yet, he had not accepted in the core of his hearty any Vaishnava sannyasi as his Guru yet... So, as he came to Vrindavana, he spend some time there and as usual, as a vanaprastha he was dressed in safron and was begging only once a day for his food, asking for "biksha"... So, as he wandered he saw a temple under construction under the name of "International Society for Krishna Consciousness" and immediately thought of the prediction of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu, that the Holy Name would be spread and chanted all over the world. So he became very appreciative of that Vaishnava Guru who had managed to turn western born souls into devotees of Lord Krishna. He then decided to go and visit and ask for "biksha". So, as he entered the next day, he asked for "Biksha" and asked to meet the Vaishnava Guru at the head of this ISKCON Movement. The western devotee who greeted him understood that he was asking for "diksha" and said: "you are very fortunate as our Guru, Srila Prabhupada, is present...". So, he brought him to Srila Prabhupada's secretary who told Prabhupada: "Srila Prabhupada, there is a saddhu who would like to see you", to which Srila Prabhupada immediately answered "Let him in"...

That was the planned meeting arranged by Sri-Sri Radha-Krishna and Sri-Sri Gaura-Nitai... !

I remember reading that the first person he asked in the Krsna Balaram temple in Vrndavan did not want to let in this Indian Sadhu to see Prabhupada because he thought he was protecting Prabhupada.

Anyway Srila Gour Govinda Maharaja looked around on his own until he found the room and then got his way in there.
I also didn't hear that when he was ... Ver mástraveling looking for a Guru that he associated with many Gaudiya math devotees. But it is quite possible.
Not to say that he neccesarily associated with the acaryas at the time though of those maths.

Srila Gour Govinda Maharaja ki jaya!!
