KAILASA Mitra Om Award July 13, 2022
Affiliation at the time of award: Former Brahmachari and Shrine Bhandari of Sri Ramakrishna Mutt
Gopal Maharaj is a former brahmachari and shrine Bhandari of Sri Ramakrishna Mutt. He was the roommate of The SPH Bhagavan Nithyananda Paramashivam at the Ramakrishna Mutt in his early years. He has these memories of The SPH to share:
"He was never afraid of taking more and more responsibilities. His knowledge was immense and He was a natural enricher of anyone around Him. He would dance like Paramaśiva and move us to dance as well!
I will never forget how He created life in the Kanchipuram branch. He had hundreds of children crying when He left, wanting to go back with Him to the Chennai mutt. Some even sought Him out with their parents at the Chennai mutt later.”
