Hare Krishna,

My dear Prabhu’s I am writing to inform you of the hospitalization of my dear godbrother Jayo Das, an older disciple of Srila Prabhupada, who had been residing in an duplex owned by disciples of HH Bhaktisvarupa Damodar Swami, Hari Mohan Das and his wife Radharani Devi Dasi in Denver,Colorado. Jayo has been disabled and living on HUD housing and SSI in recent years because complications resulting from his diabetes.

Jayo dasa was admitted to the University of Colorado Medical Hospital with sever sepsis (infection) from a wound on his foot almost two months ago. After intubation and almost a week on the ventilator, a mechanical device to breath for patients who cannot breath for themselves sufficiantly, Jayo improved and he was placed on dialysis three times a week. Several weeks ago his foot was amputated and now he has been admitted to acute rehab to help him regain his strength. He is able to chant some japa now and preaches to the medical staff and patients as possible.

He has requested me to post this on, so that his Godbrother’s may know of his condition, and he requests their prayers, visitation, and assistance. He will transferred to a nursing home facility for further care as soon as he is able to tolerate.

He was visited by HH Hanumat Prasak Swami and Nikattma Das, Denver Temple President, while he was visiting Denver, Colorado, last week. Devotees have brought him prasadam several times during his hospitilization. We have also sent him an MP3 player with all of Srila Prabhupada’s lectures and songs.

The folowing link is the Vaishnava C.A.R.E. prayer page composed by Janusiya Devi Dasi.

Any devotees who would like to contact Jayo Das may send emails to me and I will forward to him, as I speak to him by telephone daily. For any other inquiries, prayers, visitation or assistance please contact me at

Your servant,

Oh Sri Nandanandana,

Your pastimes are unfathomable except for one who has a submissive devotional mood. You are known as Yogesvara, the master of
all mystics. You allowed Mother Yasoda to bind You simply because of her
deep and pure love for You. Please help Jayo prabhu to realize Your
glories deeper and deeper and to become fixed in service if you allow him
to stay in this world, or fixed in service at the next destination of Your
choosing. May Your holy names be his shelter now and forever.

Dear Sri Sri Nitai Gauranga,

Please bestow Your merciful blessings upon Your dear devotee Jayo das. He
has given his young years to assist Srila Prabhupada in expanding the
sankirtan mission for Your pleasure. Now his body is giving him so many
problems, and He is in need of devotee association and encouragement.
Please make the necessary arrangements for him, so he can remember the
Holy names and Your merciful smile at all times during this trial time. I
also pray for his family and friends, that they may find the strength
during this time as well.

Dear Lord Krsna and HDG Srila Prabhupada,

Please take care of this soul, Jayo Prabhu, who has helped You and other devotees in KC. I don’t understand the meaning of all these wonderful devotees in the last few years that are leaving us. Too many are now leaving and pretty soon what will this material world be without all these wonderful souls taking on so much to give to others.

Dear Lord Krsna who knows what is Your Divine plans we can only humbly accept that it is Your desire. But please make it Your desire to take care of this devotee who is in need right now.

    Dear Jayo Prabhu,

    Please accept my humble obeisances! All glories to Srila Prabhupada!

    I am saddened to hear of your immediate challenges and pray to the Lord for your successful and quick recovery so that you may go on preaching. I always have fond memories of your blissful spirit and enthusiasm for Krishna consciousness. Naturally you are preaching to teh hospital staff and enlivening them about Krishna. Do continue for many more years.

    Your humble servant,
    Dhanesvara Das

    Dear Jayo Prabhu,

    Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada.

    Although we didn’t have much interaction, we were at the same temple briefly, many years back, perhaps NY or maybe LA. I remember you as an enthusiastic and jovial, powerful and imposing, devotee and preacher. I was pained to hear of your physical difficulties. I would like to add my good wishes, along with all the other devotee well wishers, for your spiritual and material strength to get through it successfully. May you always remember Krishna.

    Your servant and godbrother,
    Madhusudan das
