HG Kaliyaphani Prabhu, ACBSP left his body, 3 January 2019.
Please pray for Kaliyaphani Das, he was killed in a motorcycle accident around 9pm est.
Adikarta Das: Kaliyaphani was the hero of the great British sankirtan army that at that time was one of the best in the world. He was the rock that the traveling sankirtan parties were built on. This in the 1970’s. He was very surrendered to the mission. He joined ISKCON in 1975 and was from an aristocratic family, and went to an upper class private school called Sherborne. He did many years of managing and engaging in Lord Chaitanya’s mission. For that alone he must be very dear to Mahāprabhu. I spoke to him on Wednesday night, as he would consult me about different things. He shared with me that he was doing better in his spiritual life than ever, so I guess Krishna took him at an auspicious time. He was always a gentleman and very talented devotee who never, despite his personal challenges, ever gave up the lotus feet of the Lord. There is a quote in the CC, which I don’t remember exactly but something like this. ” Blessed is that devotee who always remains faithful to the Lord, and blessed is that Lord who never forgets his devotee.” I am sure we will meet again!
