HG Sacisuta's mother's passing
Posted August 8, 2005
Dear devotees all over the world, please accept my humble obeisances, all glories to Srila Prabhupada.
Couple of days back expired mother of a very famous devotee, Sachisuta Prabhu from Armenia due to illness and I have come to know about it some hours ago.
He was a great soul who dedicated everything including his own body for Krishna's service and passed away in Russian prison camp in 1988. As a result of his sacrifice and devotees demonstration ISKCON was registered officially in former USSR.
He was convicted in 1986 for Srila Prabhupada's transcendental book production and distribution, and was arrested many times in different cities in the USSR.
No matter how harsh they were with him in the prison camp, until his last day 26th of December, he was chanting his rounds and as a matter of fact he left his body wile seating lotus and with a smiling face chanting the Holy Names on his beads made of bread. He covered his body with tilakas using toothpaste and used bedsheet as dhoti and he made paper flower garland for himself and peacefully left this material world and surely went back home back to godhead.
For more details about Sachisuta Prabhu you can read in www.hkussr.com where is already advertised a new upcoming book called "Salted Bread" (about 300 pages) written by me which will have all the stories and remembrances of Hare Krishna in USSR in the early 80's. We are expecting to have this book out within three to four month time frame.
His parents also lost his elder brother in a terrible car crash two years back and the family is in very deep grief. Apart from all these unfortunate situations they are also having financial difficulties and need urgent support from all of us.
Dear devotees PLEASE help and support Sachisuta Prabhu's father and only sister if you can and as much as you can. I think they have deserved to be helped and supported. Even a little contribution will help them up to stabilize and have no worries for a while until they start leading a normal life.
