Satsvarupa das goswami is an avid writer and a well known personality in the history and present day of ISKCON. Satsvarupa das Goswami is a writer, artist and spiritual master in the Gaudiya Vaisnava sampradaya. He is one of the first disciples of A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada who founded the International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON), also known in the Western countries as the Hare Krishna movement.
Based in Albany, New York Satsvarupa has written hundreds of books in the form of essays, diaries, poems and journals, presenting devoted fans with both fictional and non-fictional material. In 2010 he created a website which allowed him to publish daily excerpts of his writings and share his current realizations of what life in the fast lane to Krishna is really like . . . What actually happens when you seriously decide to pursue God? Painting also demanded more and more of his time. His naïve style went through many phases, and like his writing, was not appreciated by everyone. Undaunted, he carried on with the same dogged persistence. The website and daily posts on Facebook became his major forms of delivery. They were the ideal medium, allowing him to preach to the masses and avoid travel at a time when his aging body was becoming infirm and breaking down.
I invite you to take a look at his writings, his website and daily Facebook posts.

In our multilingual world, language can bring subtle nuances beyond what an author intended. With that in mind, is it potentially offensive to call a Vaishnava’s persistence “dogged”? If Satsvarupa Maharaja is “dogged,” surely he is in the spirit of Sivananda Sena’s dog, but still, do we want to use such language to describe a Vaishnava?
