HG Sanjaya Prabhu ACBSP passed away

Hare Krishna, All glories to Sanjaya Das as we knew him.

My husband and I were a young Indian couple in 1978 when we had just moved to Connecticut from the Potomoc, Maryland area where we enjoyed congregating at the Sri Sri Radha Madanmohan temple.

We were new to ISKCON and I was very happy to discover an ISKCON preaching center in East Harford, CT. where Sanjaya, a young devotee himself was the temple President for a some period of time. His enthusiasm and preaching mood in Krsna consciousness was infectious.

In the short period of time that he ran the temple, he managed to get the local TV stations such as the NBC news to talk about the new temple and the Hare Krsna philosophy on telelevison. He visited several homes, showed us video presentations of ISCON and Srila Prabhupad. He gave us so much service that we did not even realize at that time how he so nicely made us serve Krsna by creating so much enthusiasm in us.

I particularly remember one incident where some residents near the East Hartford temple were envious and intolerant of thier new shaven headed neighbors.

These prankster boys would shout from across the street, “You rascal Hare Krishnas” and Sanjaya Das would reply, “What?” and they would repeatedly say the same phrase over and over again. What a clever way of making these foolish boys say the holy name and somehow bring good fortune into their lives!

We have not seen or heard much of Sanjaya since he left the East Hartford temple (and we missed his enthusiasm and encouragement very much), except that he now lived in London.

We are greatly saddened by the passing of our one time friend and temple president Sanjaya Das, and are happy read so much about him in these memories.

With my gratitude to him for watering my Bhakti Lata Bij and helping it to grow.
