Murari Sevaka Asrama would not exist without the Grace of our entire Guru-parampara, The divine vision of Bhaktivinoda Thakura, our Paramagurudeva His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, His Grace Aindra Prabhu, and our Srimad Gadi dasa Prabhu, who have given their whole heart and soul to fulfilling the innermost hearts desire of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabu. Additionally, we have made a small dedication to George Harrison, who gave his whole being to Srila Prabhupada’s service. This page is dedicated to Their glories.
We will add to this list with some creative offerings…. thanks
Nitya-lila Om Visnupada Paramahamsa Parivrajakacarya Astottara-sata Sri Srimad Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada (Srila Prabhupada)
His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada. Founder Acarya of the International Society for Krishna Consciousness. He and he only delivered Krishna all the way from Vrindavan India. The western world has never been the same. The effects of his efforts will be increasingly with us for the next 10,000 years. So the shastra predicts. I offer my most humble and insignificant obeisances at His Divine Lotus Feet.
Aindra prabhu was and is a continuing inspiration to devotees across the world. His kirtan is electric, passionate and surrendered to His lords, Sri Sri Radha Syamasundar. He lived in Vraj for 24 yrs, had malaria 6times, and still continued his bhajan which became famous as the Vrindavan 24hr kirtan. That program is ongoing and his inspiration continues in the hearts and minds of thousands of devotees. My humble obeisances unto him.
His Grace Gadi dasa Prabhu
Gadi Das Prabhu was initiated by His Divine Grace Srila Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada in 1971. He traveled throughout America with Visnujana Swami, on the Radha-Damodara bus, distributing the holy name, form, qualities and pastimes of Radha-Krsna to one and all. Throughout his younger years, he opened preaching centers, and in 1977 helped establish Murari-Sevaka Dhama, a temple-farm community in Tennessee. Gadi Prabhu traveled to Navadwipa to bring Sri Sri Nitai-Gaurasundara to Murari Sevaka, where he would remain serving for sometime. Gadi Prabhu also was one of the originators of Krsna House and the Krsna Lunch Program in Gainsville, Florida. While in the Dhama, Gadi Prabhu’s met with his beloved friend Sripad Aindra Prabhu. The two Sadhus shared a pure transcendentally surcharged relationship, constantly glorifying the Divine Couple and discussing Vaisnava Siddhanta while in each other’s company.
Following His 4 year stay in Vrndavana, Gadi Prabhu was called and inspired to fulfill the inner-heart’s desire of Srila Prabhupada to spread the treasure of Vraja-Bhakti all over the world by establishing Vrndavana Villages; where life with the devotees is simple, honest, caring, and loving, all because the mutual focus is centered, 24 hours a day, around humble service to each other and hearing, chanting, glorifying, and remembering the names, forms, qualities, and pastimes of Radha-Krsna and their eternal associates in Vraja. After arriving at Murari Sevaka in 2009 Gadi Prabhu has unceasingly endeavored to fulfill this desire of His Spiritual Master. Not a day goes by without Gadi Prabhu compassionately distributing the sweet names, forms, qualities and pastimes of Radha and Krsna to the residents of Murari for hours a day. His steadfastness and exemplary behavior of rendering menial service to juniors, seniors, one and all is truly inspiring. Please come and hear the heart melting Krsna-Kirtan and Katha from our beloved Gadi Prabhu.
We have special and enduring love for George Harrison, who although never initiated by Srila Prabhupada, has changed the hearts of countless souls by his love-soaked songs, yearning to be re-united with his dear Sri Krsna. We are extremely grateful for his contribution of the Radha-Krsna Temple Album which we play during the greeting of the Deities program every day. Just recently we were contacted by a new devotee who is coming to Krishna simply because he heard one of George’s songs playing in a parking lot, and then decided to investigate. For this, and countless other services he performed for Srila Prabhupada, he is to be revered and greatly loved. His power to express these divine moods he received from his great devotion to Srila Prabhupada. We would all do well to revisit such beautiful songs as My Sweet Lord, I Live for You, Isn’t It a Pity, The Art of Dying, Hear Me Lord. We cannot even imagine how many people George has inspired to chant the Holy Name. How can we ever repay the debt we owe to him for this?
