Goloka-dhama in emergency!!!
Posted May 27, 2004
Haribol, dear Devotees!
Please accept my humble obeisances.
All glories to Srila Prabhupada.
Sacinandana Maharaja and Manjulali Dasi asked me to write this letter on behalf of Sri Sri Radha-Madana-mohana and the Goloka-dhama community. As you may know, the passing away of our head-pujari Goloka Prabhu has not only plunged us into deep grief, but also has brought a most precarious situation to our pujari crew. Goloka Prabhu was such an unprecedented pujari in terms of service capacity, spiritual realization and attitude that it seems we need at least three or more pujaris to replace him and support those devotees who now serve Sri Sri Radha-Madana-mohana.
Fortunately, by Krsna's grace it seems that from July on some devotees will come to Goloka-dhama for this purpose. But especially until then - and right from now on - there are only three pujaris serving on the altar and one of them, our dear Anandini, is in bad health. The situation is extremely tense and if no support comes as soon as possible, the worship of Their Lordships is seriously in danger. That would create a big catastrophy not only for Goloka-dhama, but for all the devotees and yatras related to Sri Sri Radha-Madana-mohana.
So if any of you who is second initiated is able to come here and help us for some time, please write me! Also, please show this letter to all devotees concerned whom you might see as candidates for this seva. Also devotees who are not second initiated could support the altar and the deity room, and by that maybe find the inspiration and qualification for further progress in their seva to Sri Sri Radha-Madana-mohana.
Of course we would pay all your travelling expenses and offer you all support you need here. So please tax your brains if that wouldn't be an extra chance for you or other devotees that you know.
Thanks a lot for your help!
On behalf of the Goloka-dhama community,
Your servant, Gaura-siromani Dasa
