A humble offering on the occasion of his centennial appearance anniversary (1915–2015) and the inauguration of his samadhi-mandira (25th February 2015)

"Srila Maharaja, the embodiment of humility, had given up all designations to completely serve sri guru and Vaisnavas. He never hesitated to do any kind of seva for  them. He even used to carry the pot for the toilet chamber on his head, in service to his gurudeva and the Vaisnavas. Srila Maharaja always used to say, "I have come here to serve sri guru and the Vaisnavas and not take service from them." Throughout his life, he hardly accepted service from anybody and did everything himself. He led a very simple life and exemplified ‘simple living, high thinking’. 

He was expert in everything he did, such as electrical work, carpentry, tailoring, serving cows, working with the printing press, cooking and going on bhiksa. He would perform those services with great dedication and commitment. The seva that was most dear to him was cooking and performing kirtana. He used to cook delicious preparations for the Dieties. And he performed kirtana with genuine spiritual feeling. His favourite kirtanas were from Saranagati by Srila Bhaktivinoda Ṭhakura, and he would often become immersed in singing Narada Muni Bajaya Vina and Sri Radha-Krsna Pada-kamale Mana.

He never used to take rest during the day but remained immersed in service. In this way Srila Maharaja remained fully engaged in the service of sri guru and the Vaisnavas."
