Vibhava Krsna Dasa: Hare Krsna,
It was amazing to read offerings of various devotees on the sudden departure of Sripad Aindra Prabhu. As I read, I was happy to see so many people receiving his personal association and instructions. Fortunately I could meet him couple of times and whenever i did it was indescribably beautiful experience every time. I vividly remember when you told me to make some corrections in a notice which you were planning to put for 72 hour Kirtan in Sridham Mayapur in 2009. You were so meticulous about the usage of each and every word and alphabet. As Srila Radhanath Swami puts it, ” Attention to detail is a sign of love”. That was a glimpse of love you had for the Holy Name and service to Vaishnavas.
Sripad Aindra Pr, Yours is an irreparable loss to the Vaisnava world. There are going to be deep wounds in the hearts of your sincere followers. You will be sorely missed. This earthly Vrindavan will miss you and will never be same without you. Imagine Krsna Balaram Mandir at 6:30 pm…..without your kirtans ????
Lord planned your departure in His own unique way. It’s difficult for conditioned souls like me to comprehend the way you left this mortal plane. One should always consider that it’s not important how you left this world but in whose service you left this world. You were completely absorbed in your service to your beloved Sri Sri Radhe Shyam and have left in Their service. While thinking about this I remembered a story from the devotional epic Ramayana.
But how many times have we read what happened to the body of Maricha. Although he died at hands of Lord Rama, he died for Ravana and Ravana did not even care for his body. In contrast to this, Jatayu, the bird was killed by Ravana, but he died in the service of Rama. The reciprocation he received from Lord Rama as was that his final rites were performed by Lord Himself, a privilege which even Dasaratha Maharaj (Lord Rama’s own father) didn’t receive. Maricha left serving Ravana while Jatayu left serving Rama and that’s what counts in the end, in whose service you are leaving.
Srila Prabupada very beautifully mentions the symptoms of such a soul in the purport to Bhagavad Gita 5.11 -
Sri Rupa Goswami in his Bhakti-rasamrita-sindhu (1.2.187) describes this as follows:
iha yasya harer dasye
Aindra Prabhu, your life of dedication and determination is an example of an ideal disciple. You were completely fixed up in your devotion to Hari Naam Prabhu. You brought 24 Kirtan back to Krsna Balaram Mandir and fulfilled the ardent desire of His Divine Grace. Grateful for all the wonderful soul stirring kirtans. I am sure that you are now completely in bliss as you must be with The Divine Couple and are doing kirtans for Their pleasure. I hope and pray that by your causeless mercy I also get some taste in chanting the Holy Names of the Lord, the only means of deliverance in this age of Kali. To honour you some of the devotees here will be doing 24 Hour Kirtan at Hare Krsna Centre, Najafgarh (New Delhi). Please bless us for this service.
With a grateful heart…………
