I would like to express my affection to the family of Sri Radha Raman Temple of Vrindavan, specially to Padmanabh and Padmalochan, for the departure of Sharda Goswami, the wife of Vishvambhar Goswami. Although I am far from India (France), I felt years a profound love for Sharda Goswami of Radha Raman. She was a wonderful lady, great Vaishnavi, beautiful from the outside and inside. I am writing this to say that in the WVA spirit we are all related to the love of Radha Raman, love of God. That is the upmost reality. I remember Vishwambar Goswami came to France more than 25 years ago and invited me to visited Vrindavan. I came and he received me in his own house like his own son, most beautifully. Our Gurudevs, Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada and Bhaktisvarupa Damodar Maharaj, had both great appreciation for Vishvambhar Goswami. The idea of fraternity of Srila Prabhupada was visible in a letter which he sent to Vishvambar Goswami in 1958, while he was mayor of Vrindavan. In this letter Srila Prabhupada expressed the need to created fraternity and cooperation among all maths of Vrindavan. So naturally the Radha Raman family and wonderful devotees like Sharda Goswami are members of our Vaishnava family.
