My First Painting of Srila Gurudeva
Srila Bhaktivendanta Narayana Gosvami Maharaja appeared in 1921 in Bihar, India, in a village named Tewaripur near the bank of the sacred Ganges River. Srila Maharaja is a self-realized spiritual master in the eternal disciplic succession beginning from Lord Krishna. He is the foremost disciple of his initiating guru Srila Bhakti Pragyan Gosvami Maharaja, as well as his instructing guru Srila Bhaktivendanta vami Prabhupada, the world renowned preacher of Krishna consciousness. An erudite scholar of the classic books of transcendental wisdom called the Vedas, Srila Maharaja has translated and published over thirty volumes in Hindi with his own commentaries. His works have been translated into English and other languages, and are providing hundreds of thousands of people with new life and spiritual inspiration.
