Gaura Govinda maharaja appointment in doubt

Gopisvara dasa says:

Nam Hatta World Sankirtan Party
P.O. Box 157 * Geyserville, CA 95445 * USA
Dated: June 1993

NOTE: This REWARD is still unclaimed by the many Iskcon Gurus as of the Year 2009


This is a real offer. It’s not a joke. There is no expiration date. Bhima das backs it up, so if any ISKCON guru wants money, all he has to do is bring proof and collect on it.

So far no ISKCON guru has dared to come forward to answer it.

Some years back, Gour Govinda Maharaja disciples came to collect from Bhima in Singapore, insisting that their guru had told them that he had received a letter from Srila Prabhupada himself to become the acharya.

Bhima asked for the proof, but they had none. So a few months or so later, Gour Govinda Maharaja came to Singapore. Bhima went to the meeting, brought his cheque book, and after Gour Govinda Maharaja finished speaking his lecture, Bhima asked him, “So Maharaja, your disciples say that Srila Prabhupada personally gave you the order to become spiritual master. Can you please explain why you waited all those years until GBC appointed you to become guru? Why didn’t you immediately act on the order?”

Gour Govinda Maharaja responded, “What is that? What is it?” So Bhima spoke up a little louder, “Maharaja, is there an order for you to become guru?” No reply. Again Bhima asked, “Did Srila Prabhupada give you the order to become guru?” Silence. Bhima raised his voice, “Is there an order?” Everyone in the room was shocked. Maharaja was visibly stunned, and momentarily speechless. There was an uncomfortable pause.

He answered, “No order. No order. No order.” Three times. He was red-faced and couldn’t speak for 5 minutes afterwards, then asked the devotees to sing kirtan. A week later he passed away in India. Not since then has anyone else claimed to possess the required proof.
