Vrndavana, November 1, 1972
2081) Whether I know all six Gosvamis were active not inactive! Taught by Srila Prabhupada!
——————- So it is not inactivity. Caitanya Mahaprabhu or his followers, they were not inactive. They were acting. This Rupa Gosvami, he was so active that he could not sleep at night even for more than one and one half hour. They retired from the material activities. He was minister. He gave up his job and joined Caitanya Mahaprabhu in old age. He came to Vrndavana not to live a retired life, but a very active life.

Here is, sitting, Sri Gosvamiji. He’s coming from Gopala Bhatta Gosvami. So all these six Gosvamis, they were not inactive. They were always active. ———–—————
