Rasamrta das, a very kind devotee who helped start ISKCON Houston, left his body on November 5, 2004. He had just returned from a pilgrimage to Srila Prabhupada's samadhi in India.

At the request of Mukunda Datta prabhu, I had filmed a one hour show with Rasamrta prabhu's remembrances. The videotape is available for $10; please specify NTSC (North America), PAL (most of Europe) or SECAM (mainly France).

Show 70a. Remembrances of Srila Prabhupada & Vishnujana Swami, with Rasamrta das:

Rasamrta das was an early disciple of Srila Prabhupada. He speaks of being with Prabhupada in Denver, Pittsburgh, New York and Dallas. He has memories of cooking, guarding, driving and talking, as well as morning walks with Srila Prabhupada. He has many personal anecdotes (including how, he says, Srila Prabhupada smelled). He also discusses his time with Vishnujana Maharaj (who taught him how to cook) in personal detail in Houston, Austin, and San Antonio. This video is 1 hour long, but seems like only five minutes.

If you are in the Houston area, you can watch Hare Krishna TV/Dangerous TV every Friday at 6:30 p.m. on channel 17 (HMS channel). To purchase videotapes, write to P.O. Box 273402, Houston, Texas, USA 77277-3402 or visit my webpage.
