Acaryavarya Srila Tirtha Goswami-pada Pranati

nama om visnupadaya karunya-ghana murthaye
bhakthi-vilasa tirthaya srimate prabhave namah
guru-gauranga–govinda padabja-bhakti jivine
sri-brahma-madhva-gaudiya-acarya-varyayate namah 


"Sri Gurupada-padma possesses eternity and beyond our mortal conception. No matter whether it is manifested lila or unmanifested lila, His complete presence is a true fact. His Appearance and Disppearance are having the same essence. Therefore, on His appearance – a feeling for separation and on His disappearance – a festival of union could simultaneously be observed."

'Acarya-Kesari' Om Visnupada Srila Bhakti Prajnan Kesav Goswami Maharaja

Today, the 'krsna-dvitiya' tithi, the day of disappearance of Om Visnupada Srila Bhakti Vilas Tirtha Goswami Maharaja, reminds the servitors of the Akara Matharaja Sri Chaitanya Math, the day of His appearance, the 'vasanti-saptami', and eventually, invites us to the grand festival of "Union in Separation". In our celebration of the disappearance festival of Srila Tirtha Goswami Maharaja, we are presenting here "Bhakti-Kamal Puspanjali", a resignated offering of lotus flowers at the lotus feet of Srila Tirthadev. This beautiful poem was composed by Om Visnupada Srila Bhakti Kamal Avadhut Goswami Maharaja, a snigdha disciple of Srila Prabhupada Saraswati Thakur, on the Hundredth Advent Anniversary Festival of Srila Tirtha Goswami Maharaja.
