He served as an editor or assistant editor for nearly all the books of Srila Prabhupada published during Srila Prabhupada's lifetime. He received initiation from Srila Prabhupada in 1968, at the age of nineteen.

Practically the first task assigned to him was to staple booklets. He later went on to typing manuscripts, transcribing Srila Prabhupada's dictation for books, and then typesetting, proofreading, managing book production, and editing. He has lectured extensively at colleges and universities, especially in the United States. In 1978 he accepted the order of renounced life, sannyasa.

In 1985 and 1986, he spent a year and a half traveling with a party of pilgrims on pada-yatra, a journey on foot, through various states of India, stopping in a different town or village every night. In 1987, along with Dhanurdhara Swami and Bhurijana Dasa, he co-founded the Vrindaban Institute for Higher Education.

Jayapataka Swami

Jayapataka Swami was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA. His scholastic achievements led to an offer of a full scholarship by Brown University after his completion of high school. As a new student at Brown, Jayapataka Swami heard a guest lecturer speak on the life of Buddha. This inspired in him the desire to search for his spiritual teacher.

Having lost all interest in his studies, Jayapataka Swami deemed India to be the best destination to find this teacher. Before departing he came across a group of Hare Krishna devotees and became interested in sharing their practices. Shortly thereafter he visited the San Francisco ISKCON center where he helped to build a cart for the now world famous Ratha Yatra Festival. He joined ISKCON's San Francisco center on Ratha Yatra day then traveled to Montreal to meet Srila Prabhupada immediately afterward. Srila Prabhupada welcomed him and spontaneously invited Jayapataka Swami to join him for lunch. He was so moved by his newly found teacher that he vigorously participated in the pioneering activities of the fledgling movement.

He received initiation from Srila Prabhuapda in Montreal, Canada in 1968 and two weeks later took over the post of president of ISKCON Montreal center. He helped open an ISKCON center in Toronto, then with Bhagavan Dasa helped open ISKCON's center in Chicago. In 1970, Srila Prabhupada sent him to India where he served as president of the ISKCON Kolkata center. About a year and half later Srila Prabhupada sent him to Mayapur where he received sannyasa initiation. He and the other foundational team members were entrusted with the responsibility of developing Mayapur with Srila Prabhupada's words "I have given you the kingdom of God. Now develop it and enjoy it." Mayapur's current state of development stands testimony to Jayapataka Swami's untiring efforts over the last four decades, along with the able assistance of other dedicated followers of Srila Prabhupada.At the time of his departure from this mortal world in 1977, Srila Prabhupada requested Jayapataka Swami to take up the responsibility of being an initiating spiritual master and to act as one of ISKCON's governing body commissioners. Since then Jayapataka Swami has been executing these responsibilities.During his initial time in Mayapur, West Bengal, Jayapataka Swami learned the Bengali language and was one of the few Western devotees to obtain Indian citizenship. His activities have included distribution of BBT books, temple construction, agricultural development, cultivating new members in the cities and villages, schools and colleges and organizing large events to share Krishna consciousness, which have included thousands of participants in attendance. Other notable achievements are the establishment of the Food For Life program in rural Bengal, the organization of large-scale pilgrimages for Western devotees and his service as chairman of Bhaktivedanta Swami Charity Trust, which was established by Srila Prabhupada to renovate Gaudiya Vaishnava temples and maintain ancient sites in the holy lands. Jayapataka Swami has found time for book translation amidst his multifarious activities. He has translated Vaishnava Ke, Vrindavan Bhajan and Godruma Kalpatavi.

Jayapataka Swami continues to contribute to Mayapur's development as the International Headquarters of ISKCON by serving as a co-director. His service in Mayapur includes: Mayapur Development Committee member, Exhibits and Theme park Department Head of TOVP, and promotion of Sri Mayapur worldwide. He is currently a GBC representative, zonal secretary and co-secretary for: Comoros, Seychelles, Jordan, Yemen, the State of Orissa and Puri; Assam, Andaman and Nicobar Islands; Bhutan, the State of West Bengal, Meghalaya, Tripura, Kerala, the State of Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Bangalore, Lakshadweep, Maldives, Pondicherry, Sri Lanka, Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Singapore, Thailand, Bolivia, Peru, Bangladesh, Bihar, Jharkhand, Nepal, Sikkim, Brunei, Malaysia, Belgaum, Ecuador and Chile.

Kavicandra Swami

Kavichandra Swami met the Hare Krishna devotees in 1967 and was initiated by Srila Prabhupada in 1971. He joined the temple in Tucson, Arizona, and since that time he has served in various capacities in the United States and around the world. Some of these services include, from 1973 until 1977, itinerant selling of Srila Prabhupada's books to libraries, universities, and individuals (including leading a book distribution team called the Radha-Damodara-Sankirtan Party), preaching Krishna consciousness in Fiji, filling in as the general manager for the Radha-Rasabihari temple in Juhu,India, and as temple president in Tokyo, Japan.In Japan in 1982, Kavichandra Swami took his sannaysa vows (lifelong celibacy and a vow to fully serve his spiritual teacher with mind, body, and words). Five years later, in 1987, Maharaja started to serve as a GBC member for Japan. Gradually, his GBC responsibilities expanded from Japan to culturally diverse places such as Thailand, Indochina, Indonesia, Greece, and West Africa. Kavicandra Swami is also a committee member of the GBC Executive Committee, ISKCON Law Committee, and Revision Committee.

Kavichandra Swami has a special interest in book distribution, and Harinama sankirtan, and he writes of his faith in Srila Prabhupada on the topic of Harinama:

"1965 was an auspicious year for the earth, since that is the year that His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami, Srila Prabhupada, arrived in the United Sates of America. The U.S.A. was called, 'the land of the free and home of the brave,' but at that time many felt trapped and fearful."

"Srila Prabhupada was fearless. He came to establish a worldwide sankirtan movement, which would spiritualize and liberate all who contacted it. No one would have suspected that within a few years the name of KRISHNA would become household words, and that devotees would be dancing and chanting on all the main streetsof the world."

Kavichandra Swami invests time in devotee care by writing articles, participating in conferences and vigorously encouraging others to put effort into making it a priority.
As a traveling preacher and the initiating spiritual master of many disciples in his GBC regions and beyond, he naturally sees the whole world as his family. He does have biological family members as well: a daughter, Mona Aim, and her two daughters, Grace and Faith, who regularly attend temple functions in Los Angeles.
