Since 2001 Pujyapad B.S. Damodar Maharaja, a disciple of Srila Bhakti Suhrit Akinchana Maharaja, resides in Yamuna-kunja. Damodar Maharaja, who served at Imlitala Gaudiya Math as temple president for 28 years, felt the need for a peaceful place to perform his bhajan and spend his last days on earth. Maharaja rises early at 4 a.m. and starts his day by loudly singing the maha-mantra, his sweet bengali voice reminds us of Srila B.P. Puri Maharaja. Studies of the scriptures, chanting, going to Imlitala, Sri Radha Damodar and Radha Shyamsundar Mandir for darshan, receiving guests and preaching the glories of devotional service are his daily activities. Since then also many western devotees had the opportunity to know Maharaja and appreciate his simple nature, pure heart and good advice. Being a true well-wishing friend, everyone feels spiritually enlivened in his association.
"All things in this material world are temporary. Right now my body functions are leaving me, physically all goes down. But in Vrindavan we should always remember our spiritual origin. Then we don’t suffer. We should remember that all is happening according to Krishna’s desire. Then there will be peace. Keep Krishna always in the center. Then you will never suffer."

Swami B.S. Damodar
