Dear Devotees,

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

I remember fondly a poem HG Suhotra Prabhu sent me in a personal letter sometimes in the middle of the 90’s under a nickname “bhakta Hap Camper” which he was using as his second virtual identity in his internet preaching for some time. The poem read:

Strange ideas beget strange deeds
Doubts imagined become doubts believed
Of Krsna think and pray the taste
That ever you’ll act within His grace

HG Suhotra Prabhu ki jaya!

I never had the opportunity to meet Suhotra prahbhu, but I eagerly read his entire web site a few years ago. Now that I have read about the auspicious circumstances of his passing, I can only hope to be so blessed when my time comes.

I only got to meet Suhotra Prabhu last year when I lived in Mayapura for 6 months. I regret that we had never met before. We both very much enjoyed each others company. I found him to be a very sensitive and articulate person with an extremely high intelligence. He was very learned in sastras and was up on many of the more archane branches of knowledge. But what I liked about him the most was that he was very loyal to Srila Prabhupada and his mission. He was a Prabhupada man — what more can I say to glorify him?

Your humble servant

I remember with affection his gentle and kind personality, the erudite way of speaking to the people and his sweet voice while singing bhajans. In Romania where he also guided some persons on the spiritual path this qualities of his were also very inspiring. In Memoriam of him I would like to share with you this video showing him speaking on TV in Amsterdam.
