A Life Of Devotion

The Holy Biography of
Om Visnupad Srila Bhakti Pramod Puri Goswami Maharaj

[A Life Of Devotion Front Cover]
Arjun said: What are the symptoms of one whose consciousness is fixed in Transcendence? How does he speak, and what is his language? How does he sit, and how does he walk?
(Bhagavad-gita 2.54)

Read this authorized biography of Srila Bhakti Pramod Puri Goswami Maharaj and discover how a true saint lives. A Life of Devotion narrates his pastimes of 101 years in detail, from his childhood through his initiation by and association with Srila Prabhupad Saraswati Thakur, to his preaching and founding Sri Gopinath Gaudiya Math--a history of Gauriya Vaisnavism from 1898 to 1999. Srila Puri Maharaj teaches us through his unparalleled example and through his priceless instructions on matters such as how to treat Srila Prabhupad's family. A Life Of Devotion also includes contributions from many Vaisnavs, including his Godbrothers and other Acharyas, describing their personal experiences of the glories of Srila Puri Maharaj; excerpts of Srila Puri Maharaj's own writings; and entries from his diary. His Divine Grace personifies humility, as illustrated by his reaction to the writing of this biography (web extra: a letter from Srila Puri Maharaj to his biographer). With a preface by Srila Bhakti Ballabh Tirtha Maharaj, the President-Acharya of Sri Chaitanya Gaudiya Math, A Life Of Devotion contains many precious gems and will be a valuable addition to your library, whether you seek to learn more about the Vaisnav path or Hinduism, or whether you simply hunger to know how unadulterated goodness may exist in this world.
