In 2020, driven by unwavering determination to share the profound teachings and life of his revered Srila Gurudeva, which are intricately connected to establishing Srila Prabhupada's teachings, His Holiness Haladhara Swami Guru Maharaja, along with the assistance of numerous devotees, embarked on a mission to establish Srila Gour Govinda Swami's teachings through the platform of Taptajivanam. We have made an effort to maintain a list of all the devotees' names who, from the very beginning, have been contributing in this capacity, expressing their love for Srila Gour Govinda Swami through their actions in the mood of cooperation and tolerance.

Some individuals who had never heard of the glories of Srila Gour Govinda Swami became spontaneously inspired to start rendering service for Taptajivanam. This inspiration arose simply by reading quotes, listening to audio clips, or watching video lectures. They were moved by the unique, uncompromising, powerful character and presentation of Krishna-katha by Srila Gour Govinda Swami. Many enthusiastic and active members of Taptajivanam come from different parts of the world. Although most of the contact takes place through online meetings, this has never lessened the enthusiasm of the members to participate in the noble cause of making Srila Gour Govinda Swami's teachings available and accessible to all.

The main mission of Taptajivanam is to be of service and assistance to Srila Gour Govinda Swami in his service to his spiritual master, His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada. This service primarily involves explaining to everyone how Srila Prabhupada imparted everything in his books. We aspire to inspire devotees on the path of pure loving service to Sri Guru and Sri Krishna through the manifested vani presence of Srila Gour Govinda Swami.

We aim to be of assistance to publication houses and projects, such as Gopal Jiu Publications, Tattva Vicara Publications, Ananda Sambada, and Vani-Sanga, who have been serving Srila Gour Govinda Swami in wonderful ways for many years. They have been nothing but a great source of inspiration in establishing this platform.

First, we extend our utmost respect and reverence to all previous acharyas and bona fide successors of the Sri Brahma Madhva Gaudiya Sampradaya, who graciously manifested their boundless mercy through the teachings of ISKCON Founder-Acharya, His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, the deliverer of the universe. This mercy has been magnificently bestowed upon us by our revered spiritual master, Srila Gour Govinda Swami, shining in its greatest glory.

I offer my prostrated obeisances and prayers to the lotus feet of my spiritual father, His Holiness Haladhara Swami Guru Maharaja. My ever-shelter and well-wisher, granting me the opportunity to serve my grand spiritual master, Srila Gour Govinda Swami Maharaja, under his guidance.

Our gratitude goes to everyone who has contributed in their respective ways to the construction and service of Taptajivanam:

We extend our gratitude to our team of web designers and web hosts. Inspired by the vision of Srila Gour Govinda Swami and his mission, we have received more than we could have anticipated. The initial version of Taptajivanam was created by Mr. Suthan, who, upon learning about the purpose of the website, generously volunteered to work on this project without any expectation of compensation, dedicating numerous hours of support and assistance. The second and current version of Taptajivanam has been developed by Mr. Jagadish, who consistently offers his support and devotes a significant amount of his personal time to help us expand our platform.

Although unqualified to pray for the aforementioned individuals, I offer my prayers to Srila Gour Govinda Swami out of gratitude for their support. May Srila Gour Govinda Swami bestow his blessings upon everyone.

Finally, I humbly offer my repeated obeisances to the lotus feet of my esteemed grand spiritual master, Sri Srimad Gour Govinda Swami Gurudeva. I am deeply grateful for the precious opportunity my Guru Maharaja has bestowed upon me to serve him. With utmost sincerity, I pray for his benevolent blessings, that he may guide and utilize me as an instrument in his divine service, fulfilling his every desire. If he is pleased with this humble attempt to serve him, then we consider our endeavor successful.
