The Western devotees requested me so many times and said, “We have a very large book about Śrīla Bhaktivedānta Svāmī Mahārāja, but we don’t know about Śrīla Bhakti Prajñāna Keśava Mahārāja. He is the sannyāsa-guru of our revered Gurudeva, but we don’t know anything about him.” Also, the devotees from all over India and abroad requested me to make a translation or a compilation of a book glorifying our Gurudeva. So, I tried. By the mercy of my Gurudeva and my elder god-brothers—Pūjyapāda Vāmana Mahārāja and Pūjyapāda Trivikrama Mahārāja—I was successful. They are so much senior to me. Vāmana Mahārāja joined the Gauḍīya-maṭha in 1930, when he was nine years old. His mother gave Vāmana Mahārāja in the hands of our Gurudeva. From then, he has been serving all and especially our Gurudeva. Vāmana Mahārāja and Trivikrama Mahārāja are very qualified. I have offered the books to their hands so that they can offer it into the hands of my Gurudeva.
