Most Revered Sri Srimad Bhakti Kumud Sant Goswami Maharaj leaves his dear disciples, associates and followers in separation grief today. This is a great loss not only to the Gaudiya Vaishnavas but to the entire world. One of the brightest stars in the Gaudiya sky, Srila Bhakti Kumud Sant Goswami Maharaj took his last breath at 1.05 AM IST on January 7th, 2012 in a private nursing home.

Earlier Srila Maharaj was admitted to the hospital as he had problem in respiration due to severe cold few days ago. Doctors also diagnosed that he had fever, sugar and liver problem. He is the last disciple of Nitya-lila Pravista Om Vishnupad 108 Sri Srimad Bhakti Siddhanta Saraswati Goswami Thakur Prabhupa, Founder of Gaudia Math.

At 9.45 AM IST Srila Maharaj's transcendental body was brought to the Math in Behala, Kolkata and was placed in front of the Deities. He was performed Arati, Pushpanjali. Countless devotees of various organizations visited the math and offered flowers to his body. Later he was shifted to the bhajan kutir in the 2nd floor where devotees stood in queue to get their turn to have darsan. The grief of the devotees cannot be phrased and expressed in any language of the world.

The Maha Samadhi of His Divine Grace Nityalila Pravista Om Vishnupada Paramahamsa Sri Srimad Bhakti Kumud Santa Goswami Maharaj was established at Sri Gouranga Math in Keshihari, Midnapur Dist. W. Bengal - India.
