Today I received the sad news about the departure of my dear most bosom friend, Sriman Puru prabhu. I am praying to Sri Sri Gaura Nityananda Prabhu and Sri Sri Radha and Krsna that They will bestow Their causeless mercy upon Sriman Puru prabhu and grace him with high class of association by which he will perfect his sadhana and bhajan and attain pure Vraja bhakti.
I remember how he was in India for last 6 months, in Sri Vraja Mandal parikram and in Sri Gaura Mandal parikram. He visited many Holy places during this period and certainly gathered many deep spiritual impressions. I remember how he has served his Gurumaharaja _ Srila Bhaktivedanta Swami Maharaja - and also how he has assisted myself in spreading the glories of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu's mission.
All glories to Sriman Puru prabhu.
Your ever well-wisher,
Swami B.V. Narayan
Submitting my separation grief for Sripad Puru Das Prabhu to all devotees, his family members and friends,
I am shocked to hear about the sudden demise of Sripad Puru Das Prabhu. He was a very affectionate and dedicated devotee. Having firm belief in His Gurudeva Parampujyapad Sreemat Bhaktivedanta Swami Maharaj, with great enthusiasm He helped a lot in preaching the Gospel of Transcendental Divine Love of Supreme Lord Sree Chaitanya Mahaprabhu. I have the sweet remembrance of my stay in his house in New York.
Due to misfortune we are now deprived of his association and are in the grip of separation grief. Our only consolation is that whatever is done by the will of Supreme Lord Sree Krishna is for the eternal benefit of all. Submission to His will is the only way to get solace.
I pray to All-Merciful Sree Guru-Gauranga Radha-Krishna to bestow bliss to the departed soul and bestow strength to his family members and friends to tolerate the separation grief.
