Corrections Re. Janakinatha's Obituary

by Varnadi das

Posted April 12, 2008

Please excuse any inconsistencies in the previous obituary. As I'm sure you understand, this is a stressful time for all involved. If Janakinath was 19 when he joined, it must have been in 1970, instead of 1973, as he was born in 1950 and passed away several days short of his 58th birthday. If he was initiated a year after joining, in 1974, he must have been 23 when he joined (this is likely the correct scenario). Also, he joined in the old Miami temple, not in Coconut Grove. I should have checked this at the time, but there was just too much going on. His widow, Vrndavan dd, is still doing her best to cope with the loss.
