By Parvati devi dasi

Dear Prabhus and Maharajs, Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada.

I am appealing to you for an unusual request. I request that our society deeply consider honoring this devotee who lived and died to spread Krishna consciousness, by observing his appearance day yearly, as we do Jayananda prabhu’s.

Now there are many devotees who have lived and died to spread KC, but as young man, Ananta Shanti das attentively heard from Srila Prabhupada for only a couple days. Though it got him into hellish problems with the Russian government, this determined, bold devotee would be found in so many towns and villages, get arrested, go to another village, preach, get arrested, go to another place to preach, years after year, again and again, until they finally put him in a psychiatric prison facility where he was pumped with drugs to change his philosophy.

When his wife came to visit him she would ask the doctors when he would be released, and their reply was, “It is very hard to change this man’s mind.” Because of this bold man’s preaching, when the Iron Curtain finally came down, it was discovered that there were 400 centers all over Russia. Because of his dedication and sincerity to Srila Prabhupada, he very profoundly changed the face of the earth by his unhesitating service. He is a very extraordinary example and deserves to be remembered in this exalted way. I hope this meets you well.

Your servant,

Parvati devi dasi

The essence of Krishna consciousness is glorification of the Lord and His devotees.

Ananta Santi Prabhu glorified the Lord in an exceptional way, now the Lord will in His own way return the favor to such a very dear preacher devotee for generations to come. Let us all rejoice upon seeing this courageous devotee become more and more famous as time goes by. Ananta Santi Prabhuji ki jaya!

A Prabhu who was blessed by his spiritual master from day one. See how wonderful Srila Prabhupada’s mercy can be so transforming! One drop of it, and you become aware of what your real duty is, and you get the inspiration, the enthusiasm, the bliss carrying out. Ahaituky apratihata. No material conditions can check the intense desire of a fixed up devotee to serve the Lord. Ananta Santi was a role model in this regard despite all hardships. His example speaks for himself so loud. His example is so encouraging, so inspirational!

Hoping to get one day a tiny drop of dust from his lotus feet upon my prostrated body.

All glories to the sankirtan movement! All glories to Srila Prabhupada!
