Bhakti Tirtha Swami passes away
Posted June 27, 2005
His Holiness Bhakti-tirtha Swami passed away from this world, and into the loving embrace of Srila Prabhupada and Sri Sri Radha Syamasundar at 3:35pm this afternoon. Maharaja's passing was so graceful and peaceful, as if he slipped out by the gentle hands his helpers to board his chariot.
He reasons ill who tells that Vaisnavas die,
when thou art living still in sound. The Vaisnavas die to live,
and living try to spread the holy name around.
- Srila Bhaktivinode Thakura
