Dr Sanjay Pisharodi: HG Achyuta Gauranga Prabhu left his body on 11th November 2007 at 8.40 pm on the day of Goverdhan Puja in the month of Kartik at his residence in Vrindavan Dham. He is a disciple of HH Jayapataka Swami. He is survived by his wife, two married daughters and their family.

He was diagnosed with cancer a few months ago. When the doctors told him that there are no more curative interventions to try, he decided to come to Vrindavan to leave his body. He arrived here on the 15th of November. Being completely bed bound, it was only the mercy of Sri Sri Krsna Balaram, Sri Sri Radha Shyamsundar, Sri Sri Gaura Nitai, Sri Gurudev, the Vaishnavas and his determination that enabled him to reach Vrindavan in this condition of health to fulfill his desire. He had a darshan of the deities on the wheel chair after arriving here.

He was being cared for by his wife and daughter at their residence in Vrindavan. Mother Priya Sakhi, the hospice physicians and a team of volunteers also helped with his care. He was in very clear consciousness until 5 minutes before he departed. He asked for the picture of his gurudev and the pictures of the deities at 7.00pm. When asked whether he was ready to go back home, he smiled and nodded. He said that he felt no pain but did feel a little breathless. He also said that he was very satisfied with the care given by the family and did not have anything else to say. He said he would perform the Goverdhan Parikrama in his mind. After singing the Damodar ashtakam with his wife (it was their marriage anniversary the same day), hearing the chanting of Srila Prabhupada, he closed his eyes and left his body. It was most auspicious and he looked very peaceful. He had already sponsored ?€?Your day in Vrindavan?€? on this day to invoke the blessings of the Lord.

His body was bathed and dressed. The devotees arrived from the ISKCON temple with garlands and other auspicious paraphernalia. Kirtans were performed. After having the darshan of Srila Prabhupada at the Samadhi mandir and circumambulating the temple thrice, he was cremated as per the Vaishnava tradition on the banks of the Yamuna on Kesi ghat the next morning. His ashes will also be taken to the Ganges at Mayapur for immersion.

Achyuta Gauranga prabhu has served the mission of Srila Prabhupada as a preacher. He was very dear to one and all who met him. He had pioneered many namahatta programs in the town of Trichur (near Guruvayoor) in Kerala. He played a vital role in acquiring the land for ISKCON and starting preaching programs in Guruvayoor in spite of sever opposition. He preached extensively in Bahrain during his stay there. After returning from Bahrain, he had converted his home into an ISKCON preaching center and ashram where brahmacharis and others would also regularly stay while passing by or distributing books in Trichur.

His wife and two daughters are also disciples of HH Jayapataka Swami.
