oṁ namo bhagavate vāsudevāya

My sincere and humble daṇḍavats and praṇams to Śrīlā Swami Ramakrishnanandajī.

The Bhaktivedanta Mission founder ācārya, His Holiness Śrīla Bhaktivedanta Yogacharya Ramakrishnananda Swami, or Prabhuji, is that special person whom we can call a modern-day saint. He is the guardian of the Sanātana-dharma (the eternal religion of all entities), the guru of the eternal revealed truth in the USA, and one of the most important spiritual masters in the world, in this century, in my opinion. The American people are specifically very fortunate for directly receiving from the lotus lips of His Holiness, the pure teachings of the Vedas, Vedānta , Upaniṣads, etc. and the illuminations of those sacred scriptures.

He is the guru, and the guru is the living scripture. Only a self-realized soul like His Holiness Śrīla Swami Ramakrishnananda, a pure devotee of God, can reveal the occult purport of the eternal religion without ulterior material interests.

Let me express my congratulations to all of His Holiness’s associates, his sincere disciples and followers, for their own sukṛt, which gave them an elevated sādhu-saṅga and a rare opportunity to develop their spiritually conscious lives.

To be a friend of His Holiness Śrīla Swami Ramakrishnananda is, above all, a great privilege, and a special opportunity to receive his elevated association.

I have known H.H. Bhaktivedanta Yogacharya Ramakrishnananda Swami for a very long time, and it is clear to me that he represents our Gaudiya Vaishnava masters in an intelligent and effective way — using his ingenuity and creativeness to spread the teachings according to time, place, and circumstance, with special attention to yoga and modernity.

I am so much happy that you have made such a nice ashram, temple here. I really think that H. H. Ramakrishnananda Swami has done a very great service by making this temple. I can see from the pictures how everything is according to our system of Guru Parampara.
I can also see by all of the students that they are getting nice training. We should try to spread the teaching of yoga as far as possible to the people. Any way that I can be of assistance to you, I shall be very happy to do so. I hope that he will train all of you very nicely, so you can also become advanced in yoga and Krishna Consciousness.
