Sahadeva Sakha Das' Auspicious Departure
Posted June 17, 2006
Dear Friends and Devotees,
Please accept my humble obeisances. All Glories to Srila Prabhupada.
Significantly, he remained breathing until moments after Srila Prabhupada's garland was placed around his neck, at which time he passed from this world very peacefully and with his mouth open. Everyone present felt that he chose that specific moment, and that it was a very auspicious departure.
A short memorial service will be held on Sunday, June 18th (Father's Day) at 4:30 p.m. at the San Diego Hare Krishna temple, located at 1030 Grand Avenue, Pacific Beach, CA 92109. Your attendance is greatly appreciated. Afterwards, the Sunday Feast will be sponsored in his honor.
In lieu of flowers, we humbly request that contributions be made to help cover the cost of his funeral, as there is very little Laxmi to do so. If not attending in person, you can get specific information in this regard by contacting myself, or Kanka mataji at the numbers below. We thank you all in advance. Hare Krsna.
"One who knows the transcendental nature of My appearance and activities does not, upon leaving the body, take his birth again in this material world, but attains My eternal abode, O Arjuna"
Yours in Service,
