Srila Prabhupada’s Transcendental Sweetness and Beauty

I way very happy to see this article on Dandavats this morning. I have been trying to find the words to write something about my glorious Godsister, Yamuna devi. After reading this I realized that the best way for me to glorify her was to use her own words and repost this on my Facebook account, to offer the Yamuna back to Yamuna. A model devotee in every way who speaks with such eloquence.

A beautiful friend and Godsister I will miss you very much. In your leaving I can understand the statement Srila Prabhupada would often make, ‘For the Vaisnava it doesn’t matter if he lives or dies.’ While you were with us you were already engaged in the eternal service of Srila Prabhupada and the Divine Couple. For you nothing has changed but now we are feeling lost without your loving association. You are the perfect example of a Vaisnava/Vaisnavi. Thank you for being my friend.

always your friend and servant,

Srutakirti das

Gopiparanadhana Prabhu ACBSP left his body- updated 2 -pics from the cremation ceremony

Here is a further update:
It is 7:00 p.m. now in Govardhan. We just returned from bathing in Radhakunda after attending the cremation of Gopiparanadhan prabhu. It is wonderful that it was all able to happen on the same day, something that is difficult to happen in India for a foreigner in particular. Lokanatha Maharaja, Radha Raman Maharaja & Kratu prabhu arrived from Delhi in time for the ceremony.
In the morning when the police arrived it was confirmed very quickly that his death was caused by an asthma attack. From the position of his body you could see that he was reaching for his inhaler and was unable to get to it in time.
He had already completed his rounds for the day and worship of his Deities. Carnamrta was already prepared and by the altar. You can read my other posts on my wall on FB to get details I put on earlier along with many pictures of the cremation (funeral) ceremony.
Please forgive me for any lack of protocol in my postings and for my many offenses . I am trying to get information to the devotees as quickly as I can as many want to know what is going on here.
In the morning at 8:00 a.m. India time on Sept. 16 at Krishna Balarama Mandir there were be an offering of tributes. It can be seen on live feed at

More questions to the GBC

Thank you for posting one of my memories from when I was with Srila Prabhupada. For balance I would like to post the remainder of that ‘Uvaca’ as it appears in my book, “What is the Difficulty?” I was hesitant to tell only the one story because I didn’t want to give anyone the wrong impression. Srila Prabhupada always stressed the importance and necessity of chanting 16 rounds at all costs. The remainder is below:

“Another time during an afternoon massage in Calcutta, a devotee entered the room and asked what should be done because Gargamuni Maharaja, the temple administrator, was not chanting his rounds. “He should not be in office,” Srila Prabhupada responded. “He may be materially qualified in so many ways, but it is not enough. In management one has to have his transcendental aspect. One has to be following the regulative principles and chanting. Otherwise, it is simply useless just to have some management knowledge.

Srila Prabhupada did not remove Gargamuni Maharaja from office at that time. He was the acarya and was able to make adjustments according to time, place and circumstance. This can be understood by reading his letters and listening to recorded conversations. Sometimes Srila Prabhup√§da wrote instructions in a letter that were meant only for the person receiving the letter. It was not meant to be a general policy. We can read his books to learn the absolute truth. He sometimes called them “law books for the next 10,000 years.”

Srila Prabhupada’s personal presence on this planet was so potent that he could carry fallen souls such as myself, and keep us engaged in Krishna’s service, even when we were not strictly following his regulations. Since his departure I have realized that if I want to associate with him and perform devotional service, I must strictly follow his instructions.

your servant, Srutakirti dasa
