From Bhakti Caitanya Swami
Please settle for my humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada.
I had an extended and excellent relationship with Bhakti Nityananda Maharaja, from a few years in the past once we have been each brahmacharis. Maybe 30 years in the past. He would let me use his workplace typically once I was having problem downloading my e mail.
And typically, we might chat commonly. We additionally went on parikrama collectively many occasions.
When he took sannyasa we might joke that we at the moment are brothers (Bhakti Nityananda Swami and Bhakti Caitanya Swami), and it was actually like that. Our relationship was very shut in a transcendental method.
I do know that Srila Prabhupada, Lord Caitanya, and Lord Nityananda will take care of him. I pray to get his affiliation once more sooner or later.
Hoping this meets you nicely.
Bhakti Caitanya Swami
