Shredhya Shri Gaurav Krishan Goswami Ji Maharaj, was born in a divine family of holy saints, in which, because of intense love and devotion, Shri Banke Bihari Ji had revealed himself in Nidhi Van (Vrindavan), Uttar Pradesh, India.
This family has two primarily objectives – Studying the divine scripture of Shrimad Bhagavat and Singing the glories of this holy text for the eternal benefit of mankind.
In the 15th century, in this holy land of Vrindavan, a divine Saint Swami Shri Haridas Ji Maharaj had incarnated. In this family of Swami Ji Maharaj, innumerable divine souls have been born who are experts in the language of Sanskrit and Shrimad Bhagavat Puran. In the same family, Acharya Goswami Shri Mool Bihari Ji Maharaj was born. He was a renowned scholar of Sanskrit language and Shrimad Bhagavat Puran.
In the same family, the world renowned emerald of Bhagavat Katha, Shredhya Acharya Goswami Shri Mridul Krishan Shastri Ji Maharaj was born. Whenever he through his divine voice and devotion, sings the glories of Shrimad Bhagavat, it seems as if “Dharam” itself has incarnated and standing on its pillars. Because of his divine singing and explaining the text of Shrimad Bhagavat in a simple language, he holds a unique and outstanding place amidst the saints who sing the glories of this Mahapuran. In the lap of such a divine soul (as the father) and mother, Smt. Vandana Goswami Ji, Acharya Shri Gaurav Krishan Shastri Ji Maharaj was born. From the childhood, Shri Gaurav had an intense desire that the holy family tradition of studying Shrimad Bhagavat and singing its glories continues.
He received his primary education in an English medium and also gained full knowledge of the sanskrit language and got the holy title of Vyakran Acharya. Apart from his learning, he also listened to 108 weekly Bhagavat kathas from his holy Guru and father Pujya Shri Mridul Krishan Shastri Ji Maharaj before sitting on the Vyas Peeth for the first time.
He began singing the glories of Shrimad Bhagavat in his nectar like voice in the Radha Sneha Bihari temple, Vrindavan. From that time, continuously he has been conducting weekly programs of Shrimad Bhagavat kathas. After listening to his sweet voice, the listeners feel as if his father and holy Sadguru Dev is only singing the glories of Shrimad Bhagavat.
Because of his having understood the holy text so well, coupled with a melodious voice and good command of language, Shri Gaurav Krishan Goswami Ji Maharaj has created for himself a very unique place in the hearts of all, especially the young generation. In large numbers, the listeners after hearing his divine voice crave for more and more and never feel saturated. He ignites the intense fire for love of Godhead, which has become dormant now days.
In the midst of reciting the glories of Shrimad Bhagavat, he also sings various Bhajans written by holy saints, his Sadguru and also self written ones which create a magical devotional atmosphere and leave the listeners spell bound.
Up till now in the divine love of the Yugal Sarkar – Radha Krishana, his many cassettes / CDs of devotional songs, viz., Radhe-Albeli Sarkar, Bolo Radhe Radhe, Sarkar Shyam Ji, etc. have already embedded deep in the hearts of the devotees.
Inspite of being the one who recites the glories of Shrimad Bhagavat to many, when he is free, he still listens to the glories of Shrimad Bhagavat from his pujya Sadguru ji in a very humble manner. His main aim of life is that in today’s materialistic world, in which the humans have drowned themselves into miseries, lost their paths, the young generation must perform their duties well and also increase their devotion in the divine love of Sadguru Shri Bankebihari and attain the basic aim of human life.
With the blessings of the divine primeval couple, Shri Radha Krishana, we can very well see his aim being blessed by the eternal couple themselves.
