The passing of HG Suhotra Prabhu
By AC. Bhaktivaibhava Swami
Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada!
I would like to share with all of you my great bereavement over the departure of Sriman Suhotra prabhu. I was very much worried about his health when I met him this year in Sridham Mayapur, but I could not imagine that his health condition has been so severe that only a short time afterwards he would leave this world forever due to heart failure.
Sriman Suhotra prabhu has shown to all of us that despite of all sorts of obstacles on our path of devotional service, we must stick to the process Srila Prabhupada has given us and not waver from our determination to progress in Krishna Consciousness by all cost. I belief that Sriman Suhotra prabhu received the special mercy of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu and Srila Prabhupada.
In my previous traveling and preaching together with him in many countries, including Romania and Iceland, he expressed his heart’s desire to please Srila Prabhupada in a special way in many different occasions. As an intellectual analysist and writer he was keen to present to the public Srila Prabhupada’s teachings in various ways, and he never tired glorifying His Divine Grace under any circumstances.
I am convinced that the Lord granted him the eternal shelter of Srila Prabhupada’s lotus feet. I am joining all of you in sharing my memories of him, and in showing my deep gratitude and humble respect to a person, who has sacrificed his life and his final breath in the service of our eternal lord and master, Srila Prabhupada. Although bereaved in feelings of separation, I am joyous that Sriman Suhotra prabhu left this world under the most auspicious circumstances in Sridham Mayapur dham, holding his japa-mala in his hands.
Your humble servant,
AC. Bhaktivaibhava Swami
