Hare Krsna Prabhus,
Nice artciel on the glories of Janmastami, but the quotes about going to hell for non observance, what is the need for them, aren’t all devotees going to follow anyway, and those quotes remind me of the christians, quotes to instill fear in me, they also seem rather harsh punishments too. I would find it much more enlivening to hear the benefits only. Thank you

Yes, I agree. Sukadeva Prabhu and I, along with some temple devotees have been going out every Saturday lunch time since February 2005. We give out prasadam, leaflets about the Holy Name, and a verse & purport from Bhagavad-gita, (2.17), along with contact information, we will usually have at least one devotee distributing small books, and/or BTGâ€™s. Itâ€™s the highlight of my week, and itâ€™s something I feel very fortunate to be able to continue by te Lords mercy.

Haribol! Absolutely right, so wonderfully written! I echo your statements. How is this possible, I am almost in denial as it’s so hard to conceive, you might expect some fanatic christians or fundamental muslims, but no, I have never heard of such an act, they have respect for such a great and magnanimous souls as Srila Prabhupada. Just as the six goswamis were popular with the gentle and the ruffians, so was Srila Prabhupada dear to all, he could call them fools and rascals, and some would agree or even laugh along with Prabhupada, those so called devotees are worse then ruffians. I hope a delegation of senior devotees are going to Puri to do something about this, what do we know about such action.

I can only echo the words of Akruranatha, it’s a pity this in only happening on such a huge scale in one country. I know there are many other preaching projects around the world, but this seems to be exceptional, I hope it continues for many more years, all glories to all the devotees who take part.

Dear Syamasundara and Sundara Radhika,
It must have been extremely testing for you, and a real lesson in patience, I cam’t imagine how you have tolerated such long periods of pain and no sleep. If I get a bad flu for three days, I get frustrated not sleeping, what to speak of 50-60 days. You have both shown great forbearance, and are a good example to follow, you have taken shelter of the Lord very nicely, doing what we should all do, and I know it is easier said that done!
Syamasundara, you might remember me at Bhaktivedanta Manor, I am the one who would get you on the internet when you were over here in the UK!
Thank you for sharing your tribulation, and teaching by example, it is important testimony for us all to learn from

Hare Krsna Prabhu
I wanted to let you all know that we have now held both the funreal and memorial for His Grace Sanjaya Prabhu. Firstly, on Monday at the funeral: At least 100 devotees atteneded, (I know more would have but in some cases were unable). It was a very moving yet beautful experience for us all. Sanjayas son who is 17 read out something he had written for the day, he has been very brave throughout the whole ordeal, trying his best to be the man of the house, to support his mother and sisters. He spoke of Sanjayas dedication as a father, and a sincere devotee. The Orissa, who is only 11, also very bravely read out something she had written, there was hardly a dry eye in the chapel, but what she said was very moving. I am going to get a copy from Markandeya, the son, of what they both wrote soon, but now we are giving them some space, it has been a very busy and hectic 10 days for them all.
Yesterday (Tuesday the 27th) was the memorial at Bhaktivedanta Manor. First we had we had a fantastic feast, with preps chosen by his wife. After we had a special Damodarastakam Prayers (yes I know it finished Saturday), but as Sanjaya for the last four years was taking care of the arrangements for Damodarastakam, we felt it was fitting, his family wanted it very much. At the end his daughter, Orissa, thanked everybody for coming and all the love and support the family has received over this difficult period. Next we began listening to various devotees talk about Sanjaya, it was very enlivening and funny. Everybody was very happy. Just as Lord Krsna says in teh Bhagavad-gita how devotees are enlivened talking about Him, similarly we were so enlivened hearing about the devotee of the Lord. AS I write this we are preparing to have come more memories FRiday evening as so many wanted to speak about Sanjaya, at that time I will try to get some of the tributes from here read out. Please, if anyone else would like something read out, please post if before Friday evening. Haribol
PS. More to follow!

I will pass on all these comments to the family, as I happen to know their computer is broken right now, and itâ€™s obviously the last of their problems. We have all been very sad over here. Tomorrow is the funeral, and Tuesday is a memorial at Bhaktivedanta Manor, starting at 6pm, where devotees will tell there memories of Sanjaya.
We may get to read some of the comments from here Tuesday evening as well, hopefully. I am not in charge of the proceedings, but I will see what I can do.

I am so happy to see all these wonderful remembrances of Sanjaya Prabhu. I was with his family last night, and I told Sanjayas’ son this website, the whole family will be so grateful and endeared to all seeing these wonderful praises. Please keep them coming.
The family is getting so much support from the many friends of the family. They are a lovely family, and are gaining strength seeing the love and affection pouring forth from all over the globe.
