News, Views, and Chews on spiritual issues.

I haven't really had the time to write much, primarily due to the fact that I lead a much busier life and don't really have the time to read or write about spiritual topics. But I just couldn't resist this little nugget.

For some time I've had a certain "Vaisnavacarya Chandan Goswami" as one of my Facebook friends without really knowing who he is. I figured with a surname like 'Goswami' he might be affiliated with one of the Goswami families in Vrindavan but I never bothered to ask.

Today I noticed that he had listed ShriRadhaRaman.Com as his website which, as the URL suggests, is the "official" website of the Shri Radha Raman temple in Vrindavan. The one connected with Sri Gopal Bhatta Gosvami. The current "acharya" is the well-known Sri Padmanabha Goswami, who is the son of the late Sri Vishvambhar Goswami.

It turns out that Sri Vaisnavacarya Chandan Goswami is Sri Padmanabha's son and the future successor of the Sri RadhaRaman legacy. There are some interesting things to read on that site, including Vaisnavacarya's blog, photo galleries (beautiful photos of Sri Amiya Nimai Gauranga Mahaprabhu) and articles. It is a nice site, check it out.
