A defining moment in his Krishna consciousness was a conversation he witnessed between Srila Prabhupada and his godbrother Srila Akinchana Krishna Dasa Babaji Maharaja in October 1977. During that exchange Srila Prabhupada repeatedly quoted Srila Narottama Dasa Thakura:
tandera carana sevi bhakta-sane vasa
janame janame haya, ei abhilasa
“This is my desire: that birth after birth I may live with those devotees who serve the lotus feet of the six Goswamis.”
Bhakti Bhringa Govinda Swami felt that Srila Prabhupada was revealing an integral reason for his spreading of Krishna consciousness: his deep spirit of love and service for Krishna’s devotees.
Bhakti Bhringa Govinda Swami travels to join devotees in the congregational chanting of Krishna’s names. He is known for his lively chanting and his ability to include all to participate. In 2000 he became a GBC member and is currently zonal secretary for Volga Region CIS, Iraj, Lebanon and Syria. He is also co-zonal secretary for Mauritius, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tojikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan.
