Realizing that he would not get any bonafide spiritual master in the West, he decided to go to India. As he was preparing to leave for India, by the will of the Lord, he met the disciples of His Divine Grace A.C Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada and joined them on a Ratha Yatra that day in San Fransisco. Jayapataka Swami then went to Montreal and met HDG Srila Prabhupada.Srila Prabhupada told him he would be the victory flag of Lord Krsna.Guru Maharaja started the Toronto Temple where He was the Temple President after two weeks of being initiated. Afterwards He got involved in the opening of the Chicago Temple . In 1970 Srila Prabhupada sent him to India to establish ISKCON Mayapur.Srila Prabhupada assigned him to develop Mayapur as his lifes mission saying, "I have given you the kingdom of God now develop it". He is at present an initiating spiritual master of ISKCON, member of GBC, and spearheading the Congregational preaching programme throughout the world.
