HG Sanjaya Prabhu ACBSP passed away

Sanjaya Prabhu,

We were roommates in NYC ISKCON at West 55th Street from 1979-1980. Although our services differed we were friends and comrades in our work for Srila Prabhupada. You were distributing books. I was in the kitchen. Book distributors were undoubtedly doing the heavy lifting to please Srila Prabhupada. I remember you were proud to represent him and the BBT. You took special care and pleasure in dressing to a “T” as their representative in the finest suits available that had been left behind by their owners at local dry cleaners. You were affectionately likened to a Barracuda for your style of quickly approaching a person and making a book sale. Some said there was a little elitism among book distributors toward devotees doing other services. You were definitely not an elitist. You showed your appreciation for devotees of all persuasions. We loved you for that. You got your hands dirty on Sundays, delighted to help make a large batch of coconut or tomato chutney for the Lord. In the morning we chanted Brahma Samhita together after mangala arati, and you did the puja for the small Sri Sri Radha Krishna deities. I can still see you; scented oil Q-tip behind your ear, gleefully catching devotees to rub the maha-prasadam-scent on the backs of hands during guru puja.

Sanjaya, as you matured you searched for additional ways to present Krishna Consciousness to catch the imagination of all kinds of people. You developed a presentation and Krishna conscious commentary about how the world is ruled. You visited Ireland and then narrated a slide show to our first children’s summer camp in Lake Huntington about leprechauns and Krishna Consciousness.

Sanjaya, I was sad to hear of your passing. I hope it means you left to continue to assist Srila Prabhupada and Lord Caitanya in another capacity. Thank you for your association. Your godbrother and friend,

Vishnugada dasa
