    Is there anyway to contact maharaj personally ….?

    1. HH BVPS Vaikuntha Vani

      Hare Krishna, Sri!

      Maharaja usually prefers to meet people in person, in Sridham Mayapur or during his preaching travels. Sometimes it may be possible to contact him through his students and disciples.

      If you have a general question, we might be able to link you to lectures where Maharaja has addressed it.

    “…Welcome to Śrīla Bhaktividyā Pūrṇa Svāmī Vaikuṇṭha Vāṇī – The Transcendental Teachings of H.H. Bhaktividya Purna Svami Maharaja!

    H.H. Bhaktividya Purna Svami Maharaja is an instructing spiritual master in ISKCON, International Society for Krishna Consciousness, a disciple of ISKCON’s Founder-Acarya, His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada. …”

    Why Svami, not Swami, as in a Srila Prabhupada title?
    (further it is ok in “… HH Bhaktividya Purna Swami leads the simple life…”). But why HH although in headline H.H.?


    … His Holiness A.V. Bhaktividya Purna Maharaja appeared in 1955 in Santa Monica, California, USA…

    That mean “A.V.”?

    “… He was initiated by Srila Prabhupada in January 1974 on the appearance of Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakur…”

    In 1974 Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakura appearance was 10 of February. That the right date of initiation?

  11. Siddhant

    Hare Krishna PAMHO!

    I need to consult Maharaj about the issue of homosexuality. Should a gay ( a man who has no attraction to women, but to men) get married to woman or man?
    Or should he stay unmarried ? Staying in Brahmachari ashram might be more sensually agitating for such a man.

    I would be grateful if could get Maharaj’s opinion on this complicated issue.

      Hare Krishna Prabhu, you may check out this lecture, where Maharaja has answered devotees’ questions on this issue:

      Hare Krishna Prabhu, Dandavat Pranams!
      We do not have the email address of Maharaja and are not sure if he even has one. In a recent lecture Maharaja mentioned that he only uses a phone. However, you may wish to contact Bhaktivedanta Academy Mayapur
      They will surely be able to give your message to Maharaja. Yhs, Website Admin
