Dear Gopiparanadhana Prabhu, Please accept my most humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada. It was with great sadness that I learned yesterday of your sudden departure from this world.

Sep 16 2011 A Tribute To Gopiparanadhana Prabhu

By Bhakti Madhurya Govinda Goswami

“Gopi”? (Gopiparanadhana prabhu). Oh, no! Surely there is some terrible mistake! Not Gopi! Oh no; surely it is just a nasty, irresponsible rumor—that Gopi has left us! But no; only about an hour after receiving this terrible news, it is confirmed. Gopi has left us! Oh Radhe! Oh Krishna! Oh, why? Why do you take away such a sweet and valuable devotee from our association? Oh why?

By Indradyumna Swami

It was with great sorrow that I heard about your sudden departure from this world.

Aug 7 2010 My meeting with HG Aindra Prabhu…

By Caitanya Caran Dasa

Jul 22 2010 Aindra Prabhu in Eternity

By Abhaya Mudra Dasi

Who would not miss Aindra Prabhu? Even the dham of Vrindavan will miss him. Whoever has listened to his bhajan has been transferred into the Vaikunta realm by a unique and outer-worldly sound vibration. I remember the times in Bulgaria when we were living under very austere temple conditions: taking baths in snow water, freezing in the winter and squashing body to body in the small rooms.


Jul 22 2010 Appreciating Aindra Prabhu

By Giriraj Swami

Hearing the news of Aindra Prabhu's sudden departure was a great shock, and I could feel what a great loss it was for us all. He was a dear friend and well-wisher of all, and through his kirtana he gave shelter to devotees throughout the world. Ultimately, he gave protection and life to the whole planet


Jul 22 2010 HG Aindra prabhu

Krishna Gopal das: Many devotees around the world have come to cherish Aindra prabhu’s kirtans and uncomplicated nature. I got chance to visit Vrindaban two years ago and one of the things I cherished most on that visit was to sit with my old god brother from Washington, DC and chant the holy name

Jul 21 2010 His Grace Aindra Prabhu

By the members of the GBC Executive Committee

It is with deeply sad hearts that we have come to know about the sudden passing of His Grace Aindra Prabhu. There is possibly no devotee in the entire world of ISKCON who has not heard one of Aindra Prabhu's kirtans, either live or from a recording, and has been left wondering whether this celestial singing was coming from this earth or from another world.


Jul 21 2010 HG Aindra Prabhu

By Ananda Tirtha Das

Alas, for reasons unknown to us, his worshipable Lord chose to take Aindra Prabhu in sudden and apparently unfortunate circumstances. His absence is reverberating throughout ISKCON in ways few, if any, others could have affected


Jul 20 2010 HG Aindra Prabhu - Final Update from Vrindavan

By Lakshman das

HG Aindra Prabhu often performed bhajan until the dead of night. On the night of 16th July 2010, he probably did the same, and never knew it was his last day. Probably to cook some bhoga to Deities, he ignited the gas stove unknowing the gas leakage.


Jul 20 2010 Aindra Prabhu´s Instructions

By Muniraja dasa

Here in Vrndavana so many people come to the temple for darshan and we can do kirtan here. But in the west you don´t get that many people to the temple, you have to go out to do kirtan. How often do you go out?


Jul 20 2010 My Aindra Story

By Devala Das

Jul 20 2010 Vrindavana Will Never be the Same

By Dhanesvara Das

It was with great shock and sadness that I received the news of his unexpected departure from this world. Over the days that have followed, whenever I was somehow reminded of the event I would feel the same shock again, followed by emptiness and woeful lamentation. Why did he have to go *now*!


Jul 20 2010 Aindra and Padmalochan Prabhus

Vrindavan Lila Dasi: Aindra Prabhu has now joined nitya-lila... he was the closest friend of my husband, Padmalochan Das. Few days before my husband left his body, Aindra Prabhu called from Vrindavan...

Jul 19 2010 Offering from H.H. Lokanath Swami to H.G. Aindra Prabhu

By Lokanath Swami

Aindra had left us behind. I was shaken, shattered and shocked. I thought of flying to Vrndavan, but the arrangements could not be made in time


Jul 19 2010 HG Aindra Prabhu I know

By Thulasi das

We were a small patch of devotees before, but as soon as Aindra Prabhu arrived, the hall in front of the temple Deities zoomed to its full capacity. A temple pujari adorned him with a thick flower garland...


Jul 19 2010 A Note On Aindra Prabhu

By BB Govinda Swami

You gave your life in “dedication with conviction” for sharing the ocean of transcendental happiness of Sri Krishna nama sankirtan with countless souls suffering the miseries of material existence. You dedicated your life to present the “Only and Final” solution for ending the sins and tribulations of Kali Yuga through the performance of Sri Krishna Nama Sankirtan
