This is Part 2 of the first volume of this work, from 1974-1979: “Have you taken sannyasa?”

This book is on the glorious life of Srila Gour Govinda Swami, who was an emissary from the spiritual world. From his first days on planet Earth he was surrounded by hari-kirtana and hari-katha. He was born in a family of great Vaisnava kirtaneers, and they are the most famous kirtaneer family of Orissa (Odisha). Many of their family members have picked their time of leaving this world, left with a mighty kirtana going on and the day they leave on is the appearance day of Srila Narottama dasa Thakura. This book discusses the life of Srila Gour Govinda Swami from his divine birth, teenage years, married life and subsequent life as a great renunciant and Vaisnava. A must read for anyone who is interested in the lives of great saints.

Then the most astounding thing took place. Actually, it was set up, a little bit, by the new devotees that were taking initiation from Śrīla Prabhupāda. Śrīla Prabhupāda had to explain to them the meaning of initiation, but when Gour Govinda Mahārāja came up, well, he took over the whole show because he gave a spontaneous speech to Śrīla Prabhupāda on the glories of the guru. Śrīla Prabhupāda went into a sort of trance when he heard this. His offering was quite lengthy and it was all in Sanskrit. Śrīla Prabhupāda was very taken aback and was practically crying. Śrīla Prabhupāda glorified Gour Govinda Mahārāja very much. He said this is how to glorify the spiritual master. He was very much taken by the offering of Gour Govinda Mahārāja.
