In December 2014, 108 Pandit Shri Krishna Dasa Babaji Maharaja, a most respected 99 year old saint, great scholar, who was doing Radha-Krishna bhajan for 80 years in Vraja Dhama, awarded him sannyasa (babaji vesh) in the traditional Gaudiya Lineage of Shri Advaita Prabhu.

Out of respect for Prabhupada, who was Shri Krishna Das Babaji's Vrindavan friend in the 1960's, he named his new disciple Mahanidhi Madan Gopal das. His wonderful Prabhupada memories are in a book titled "Shrila Prabhupada, A Friend to All" by Smt. Mula Prakriti Dasi.
