Devotees prayed that Srila Prabhupada would take them to another planet to do teaching activities. All Kઘઘઘa devotees feel heartbroken that we have lost such a spiritual person. From the outside it was like lightning, but from the inside it was as soft as the petals of a rose. Not a single day that he sent anyone without taking prasad. The way he has fought all his life to uphold the principles of Srila Prabhupada is exemplary.
Words are inexhaustible to describe his qualities and kindness. Jashomatinandan Prabhuji, the pillar of ISKCON, will be permanently lost. Shri Vaishnavdas Prabhu, President of Rajkot ISKCON Temple and Shri Murlidhardas Prabhu, President of Jamnagar ISKCON Temple have sent condolences.
