Remembering Sadaputa Prabhu

Sadaputa Prabhu and I were at Cornell University during the same time period, although we did not really know each other. I was speaking with him several years later, at the Lake Huntington Gurukula, about how he came to Krsna Consciousness, and how he even finished his academic studies, knowing about Krsna and being surrounded by the “circus” that was Cornell in those days. He told me that when he began to see everything in existence as a product of wave function, he knew he was in trouble! He asked me if I remembered the BBT poster and book display at the Triangle Bookstore in the college town of Ithaca, and I told him that I did. He said that he felt his spiritual life began when he was in that store and one of the BBT posters had fallen over and that he had picked it up and fixed the display. He revealed to me that he had always, as far as he could remember, been attracted to Lord Caitanya, and that he would spend hours in the musty stacks of Olin library at Cornell studying anything related to Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu. He felt that he intuitively knew which ones held some truth and which ones didn’t, but that nothing was giving him conclusive information. He finished his studies as he was very close to completion, but I left the university, seeing so much hypocrisy and having so many unanswered questions about the meaning of life. I joined the temple on Henry Street in Brooklyn, NY, and Sadaputa Prabhu began coming as a guest. As he related to me, he was cleaning the floor in the men’s prasadam room, and one of the brahmacaries greeted him with “Welcome to the sankirtan movement of Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu!” Sadaputa Prabhu, was thrilled. He exclaimed, “This is about Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu?” It all fell into place for him. He is already deeply missed. My love and condolences to his family.
