My deep Respect For Bhakti Tirtha Swami

I would like to thank Bhakti Tirtha Swami for doing such a wonderful job of uniting so many devotees worlwide. Whenever I meet one of his disciples I'm usually impressed with their high level of Krishna consciousness. I've been to probably a hundred ISKCON temples around the world and none of them have done such a good job as the one's such as Gita Nagari Dhama. I feel it's because of Bhakti Tirtha Swami's relentless,selfless service to Srila Prabhupada that makes it so. I remember the 2002 Gita Nagari Ratha Yatra. The devotees were so organized,friendly,caring,wonderful Vaisnava's. My wife and I were well taken care of. So much so that if we ever decide to build a place it'll be at Gita Nagari. Whether Maharaja stays with us for a short time longer or a long time longer(I hope a long time) one thing is certain that he has given the most valuable gift,love between vaisnava's. Srila Prabhupada said there would be no utopia in ISKCON, but I have to thank Bhakti Tirtha Swami and his disciples for making feel more close to that utopia than I ever have before. Hare Krishna. All Glories to Srila Prabhupada and his dear devotees. Your Servant, Devaki Nandana Dasa
