Passed out of Marine Engineering Research Institute, Calcutta in 1994. It is there in the college as a cadet he came in touch with the devotees of International Society for Krishna consciousness.
He found that all the unanswered questions were completely satisfied in the books of Srila Prabhupada.

Gopal Krishna Goswami.
He joined the Merchant Navy as an engineering officer and worked for 3 years. During this time he felt the urge to teach the message of Gita to children and youth who are misguided by consumerism.
