Gour Govinda Swami’s Ecstatic Symptoms
by Lagudi Das

by | Jul 31, 2018 | ACARYA SERIES, Srila Gour Govinda Swami, Uncategorized

In 1979 His Holiness Gour Govinda Swami fell mysteriously ill in Mayapur Dham and was taken care by a god-brother Lagudi Das. This illness, Lagudi determined, was Krishna Prema, or love of Godhead in the mood of the Gopis.

This video, filmed at the Sri Mayapura Chandrodaya ISKCON Temple, interviews Lagudi Das about the incident and sees Lagudi taking us to the room where it all happened.


  1. dayanidhi

    Nothing sweeter than hearing the nonenvious glorification of a MahaBhagvavat. Gour Govinda Maharaj was no ordinary devotee.

  2. damodara maharaja


  3. Nimai Pandita dasa

    It is interesting that the room Srila Gour Govinda Swami started emitting ecstatic symptoms in is now the cashiers room in ISKCON Mayapura, instead of a Holy Shrine to the ecstatic symptoms of His Divine Grace Srila Acarya Thakura Gour Govinda Swami Maharaja. Also the room he left this world in is just another room in Mayapura, that gets rented out to anyone, rather than a shrine in remembrance of such a great Acarya leaving this world.
