SKY FADED FROM MUNDANE SIGHT - Most Revered Siksha Guru Sri Srimad Bhakti Kumud Sant Goswami Maharaj leaves His dear disciples, associates and followers in separation grief yesterday. This is a great loss not only to the Gaudiya Vaishnavas but to the entire world. He took His last breath at 1.05 AM IST yesterday in a private nursing home.  Earlier Srila Maharaj was admitted to the hospital as He had problem in respiration due to severe cold few days ago. Doctors also diagnosed that He had fever, sugar and liver problem. These external things just became apparent cause but ultimately it was His desire to be part of the mid-night eternal pastimes of the Lord. 
He is the last disciple of Nitya-lila Pravista Om Vishnupad 108 Sri Srimad Bhakti Siddhanta Saraswati Goswami Thakur Prabhupad, the Founder of world-wide Sri Chaitanya Math, Sri Gaudiya Math and Sri Gaudiya Missions to leave this planet.

At 9.45 AM IST Srila Maharaj’s transcendental body was brought to the Math in Behala, Kolkata and was placed in front of the Deities. He was performed Arati, Pushpanjali. Countless devotees of various organizations visited the math and offered flowers to His body. Later He was shifted to the bhajan kutir in the 2nd floor where devotees stood in queue to get their turn to have darsan of His transcendental body. 
The grief of the devotees cannot be phrased and expressed in any language of the world.
His service to the Vaishnava literature is also worth, with His books like “Samlape Shiksha”, “Patre Upadesh”, “Geeta Siddhant Sar”, “Sant Vani”, “Sri Gauranga Mahaprabhur Jiveni”, “Sadhan Kan”, “Damodar Vrat Mahatmya”, “Bhakti Geeti” and “Diksha” which have been casting divine light on the royal path of pure devotion.

One of the brightest stars in the Gaudiya sky, Srila Bhakti Kumud Santa Goswami Maharaj took His last breath yesterday in a private nursing home in Calcuta, India.  His transcendental body will be taken to Narma near Medinipur where He appeared. From there He would be taken to Sri Chaitanya Ashram in Kharagpur. Later He would be taken to Keshiari where He established Sri Gauranga Math and the final samadhi will take place there.  Santa Maharaja’s glories will be heard all over.

Srila Santa Maharaja was an outstanding preacher through his life. He was very dear to his godbrothers and to his Spiritual Master. Srila Santa Maharaja left the world in Calcutta where he had spending the last years in his bed, deeply absorbed in the welfare of all living entities. Despite of his state of being absent minded from the mundane affairs, he still received thousands of visitors and even initiated many new sannyasis into the preaching invitation his gurudeva made to the whole world. … Srila Bhakti Kumud Santa Maharaja has established many beautiful mandirs in India and also traveled around the world preaching the glories of Lord Caitanya in England, Germany and USA. … He joined Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakur Prabhupada’s Mission when he was still a young boy and, as he told me personally, Srila Bhakti Pramode Puri Maharaja had been a tutor for him in his early stages of math’s life.
