Guru Tattva (OUT NOW!)

The information in this booklet was compiled by His Divine Grace Srila Gour Govinda Swami Maharaja. After many of his Godbrothers fell from their positions as sannyasis and gurus, Srila Gour Govinda Maharaja presented this information to the GBC members (of ISKCON) in 1989 for the sole purpose of establishing the absolute conception of (sad-) guru and to console Srila Prabhupada’s grand-disciples so that they would not lose faith in devotional service and Krishna consciousness. 14.5 x 21 cm; 36 pages, softcover (re-edited and re-printed)
