Goswami Kriyananda

For whatever takes birth, death is its final curtain,
And for whatever dies, rebirth is certain,
Therefore, in the performance of your task,
Hold to the Dharma, do not the karma grasp.

- Bhagavad Gita 2:27

Our beloved guru Sri Goswami Kriyananda has performed his
maha-samadhi, leaving his physical body, April of 2015.
