Swami B. P. Puri (1898–1999), born in Ganganandapur in Jessore district (present-day Bangladesh), dedicated his life, spanning over a century, to the service of his guru. He was the founding Acharya of the Gopinath Gaudiya Math. His writings reflect the disciplined eye of a scholar who expresses profound scriptural conclusions with grace and directness. He taught and exemplified the spiritual concept of pure devotion, or Krishna bhakti, as expressed within the Gaudiya Vaishnava tradition.
