Memorial for Sudama

Dear Omkara devi dasi,

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

I am eternally indebted to you for sharing with all the vaisnavas, the glorious passing of my dear godbrother Sudama prabhu.

I had the great fortune of his favor on several occassions. I first met him at the 1974 Chicago Ratha Yatra. At that time he was serving Srila Prabhupada and I was guarding Srila Prabhupada’s room.

Sudama told me “If Srila Prabhupada needs me immediately come and get me.”

A short time later Srila Prabhupada came out his room and called out in a very loud voice “Sudama” and I quickly ran to find Sudama who immediately came and prepared a beautiful tray of prasadam for Srila Prabhupada. Thank you Sudama prabhu for giving me the opportunity to serve Srila Prabhupada.

On his last visit to the Atlanta temple I got the opportunity to serve Sudama prabhu by arranging a meeting for him at a local TV station. Everyone at the station was totally fascinated by this beautiful Hare Krsna devotee. Practically everyone stopped to come in and meet him. I will never forget that day.

Then at the end of the day he asked me to prepare some cookies and hot milk for him. He was so happy and thanked me for such a small service.

I will always remember Sudama prabhu and I pray that one day we will be together again serving Srila Prabhupada.

Your humble servant,
Balabhadra Bhattacarya dasa

Please help Nirguna Prabhu urgently!

Nirguna prabhu is a very special vaisnava. I have known him since the day he walked into the Atlanta temple in 1975. He has always been extremely enthusiactic about preaching and book distribution.

I especially remeber how he would take time every week after travelling sankirtan and sit down and write letters to people he had met on sankirtan during the week. This impressed me deeply.

Nirguna is a great general in Srila Prabhupada’s army of preachers and therefore I am confident that he will be blessed with a speedy recovery so that he can continue in his service to Srila Prabhupada. So let us all keep up our prayers for him.
