HH Romapada Swami in Washington DC, Mar 2010

If there's one quality or attribute that can describe His Holiness Srila Romapada Swami, it is his mood of service to his spiritual master, Srila Prabhupada, our founder acharya, and his being unswayed by any obstacle that disrupts him from executing this duty. All other qualities are naturally manifest in him because of this. We are truly blessed to have his association in any form let alone have an opportunity to serve him, because as aspiring devotees we have the fortune to witness a soul who's completely acting on his real self-interest, as a servant of Krishna each and every moment while undergoing so many austerities and sacrifices for our benefit.

HH Romapada Swami in St. Louis Mar 2010

On March 4th, Maharaja arrived in St. Louis by car from Urbana-Champaign, a 3 hour drive away. He commenced extending his pure association to students at Washington University in St. Louis, presenting "You Are What You Eat". He began in a very humble mood commenting "dinner is the best part", and "I have a lot to live up to" after a short introduction. His inspiring presentation was uncompromising in sastric conclusions yet 'tasteful' to a western audience. His humble, yet persuasive personality is awe-inspiring and can only be balanced by deep Krishna consciousness. From him we hear that Srila Bhaktivinode Thakura had a similar mood.
