HH Kadamba Kanana Swami

Dear Devotees,

Please accept our humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada.

In Caitanya-caritamrita, Madhya 22.128, Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu explains that of all devotional practices, five are most potent. The life of HH Kadamba Kanana Swami was an ideal illustration of all five of these most potent limbs of bhakti: sadhu-sanga (association of the Vaisnavas), nama-kirtana (chanting the holy names), bhagavata-sravana (hearing Srimad-Bhagavatam), mathura-vasa (residing in the holy dham), and sri-murtira sraddhaya sevana (serving the Lord’s deity form with faith).

From the very beginning of his journey on the path of Krishna consciousness in 1978, Maharaja found shelter in Sri Vrindavan Dham, where he served until 1984, thus exemplifying Mathura-vasa, residence in the holy dham.

In 1985, Maharaja traveled to Sri Dham Mayapur, where he supervised the construction of Srila Prabhupada’s pushpa samadhi. Immediately thereafter, Maharaja returned to Vrindavan to serve as temple president until 1995. Maharaja continued to offer his service and guidance to the Vrindavan and Mayapur projects through his life, thus offering his faithful service to Sri Sri Radha-Syamasundara and Sri Sri Radha-Madhava (sri-murtira sraddhaya sevana).

Maharaja then dedicated himself to sharing the gifts of the holy dhams with the suffering souls by incessantly traveling all over the world. By his lifelong study of Srila Prabhupada’s books, Maharaja possessed a realization of sastra that he was able to convey with deep conviction, astute observations, and a charming sense of humor, thus sharing with us all the fruits of his bhagavata-sravana, meditation on Srimad Bhagavatam.
