A Request for Help

My dear devotees,

All glories to Srila Prabhupada.

By now you must have heard the shocking news of a terrible accident involving a young devotee, the daughter of Srimati Mahadevi, a faithful disciple of Srila Prabhupada. Mahadevi, Goura Prema, and her older sister, Caitanya all went to India where Goura, a very accomplished dancer, was going to study classical Indian dance. On the streets of New Delhi, in the heroic act of saving her sister's life from an onrushing car, she was herself run over and her legs were severly injured. Unfortunately in this critical situation, Goura, who has undergone unimaginable pain, will not recieve proper medical treatment without payment and her family is virtually penniless. If she does not recieve proper medical care, the consequences will be tragic and lifelong.

It has often been noted in ISKCON, that we tend to leap from the sinful to the transcendental, bypassing the ethical and the humane. Now is a moment when all of us who are able must help Goura. I have personally sent her funds to guarantee a present operation. However, there is much more to be done to ensure full recovery. For all that is good and right, please help her.

You can send funds to the following bank account:

Bank of America, Culver City, California, USA

Goura P. Riggan

Bank account number:0366260341

Routing number:122000661

Please send this letter to any devotee who might be able to help.

Thank you very much for your kind consideration of this request.

Yours in Prabhupada's service,

Hridayananda das Goswami
