Wow, thanks for the video. I felt chills run through my body while I watched this. What an amazing, truly one-of-a-kind personality Bhakti-tirtha Swami was and is. His estatic dancing style is something one has to see to appreciate.

I found the following quote from Bhakti-tirtha Swami to be very touching and I am trying to keep it close to my heart. It is the concluding words of the "Author's Preface" to The Beggar IV (Die Before Dying), Page 6.

"If my guru and the Lord permit, hopefully I will still be alive and able to sign your book for you. But if not, please know that as you reflect on these prayers, from the spiritual realms I send you my love to comfort you through your own bewilderment, fear, anxiety, pain, and grief. Know that I love you dearly- yes, enough to die for you and others who are engaged in spiritual evolution.

I, the beggar, beg for your mercy and love, while I joyfully give you mine. You will feel my presence as you read these prayers-if you desire to."

Bhakti-tirtha Swami ki jaya!!!
