His Divine Grace Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Goswami Thakura
On Saturday 17th December most Vaisnavas around the world will be fasting till noon to honour the 73nd anniversary of Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati´s departure from this world.
Having lived a life dedicated to the propagation of Krishna Consciousness for the benefit of all living entities, His Grace was blessed with acquiring the perfect disciple in Abhay Caran, later known as A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Srila Prabhupada.
Srila Prabhupada was empowered by the mercy of Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati and was able to carry out his order of spreading the essential teachings of Sri Krishna Caitanya Mahaprabhu to a worldwide audience. This work continues today and everyday in every ISKCON centre and in the heart of every Vaisnava, and Bhaktisiddhanta´s vision and strength remain as a constant source of inspiration.
Let us offer our humble obeisances to the lotus feet of His Divine Grace Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Goswami Thakura.
