Dear Devotees,

Please accept my most humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada!

I am very sad to report this terrible news to all of you. I just got a call from a few devotees that HH Tamal Krishna Goswami left his body due to a car accident on his way to the Calcutta Airport. He was unconscious, in a coma, and finally passed away in the hospital. We are trying to obtain details but communications are very bad.

The day before yesterday HH Tamal Krishna Maharaja was talking about his experiences with Srila Prabhupada and other devotees on the main stage in the festival inauguration program. Afterwards, he excused himself due to health problems, so we have to assume his body was a little weak and could not tolerate the shock of the accident. He was also sharing stories with other senior devotees who were present in 1972 like HH Jayapataka Maharaja, Lokanath Maharaja, and Brahmananda prabhu. It so unfortunate for us to lose the physical presence of such a dear devotee and personal associate and secretary of HDG Srila Prabhupada.

We all pray to the Lord to take him into His eternal abode as he dedicated his entire life to serving his Gurumaharaja HDG AC Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada and constantly worked to spread Krishna Consciousness all over the world.

The accident occurred at 5:15am, one hour away from Mayapur in an area called Fulia. He was taken to a hospital in Ranaghat (between Krishna Nagar and Calcutta).

In a few hours the body of HH Tamal Krishna Maharaja will be brought back to Mayapur, after legal formalities have been cleared in the hospital.

Another car was traveling behind the main car and devotees immediately reported the accident to authorities in Mayapur. HH Jayapataka Maharaja immediately went to the hospital at 5:30 am and 3 additional cars took their holinesses Sivarama Maharaja, Radhanath Maharaja, Jayadwaita Maharaja, BV Govinda Maharaja, and Niranjana Swami.

Three other devotees were in the car with HH Tamal Krishna Goswami; Aghabid das (responsible for the ISKCON youth group in Calcutta) is in a very dangerous situation and he has been taken to a hospital in Calcutta. Vrndavaneswari dd has also been taken to the Calcutta hospital, in coma. She is the wife of Kalasundara Prabhu, the temple President in New Zealand, who also was traveling in the same car (Tata Sumo) but is safe.

We will keep you all informed and post this news in www.mayapur.info and oldchakra.com

We request all the devotees around the world to pray for HH Tamal Krishna Goswami and may Lord Narasimhadev protect him, and may Sri Gauranga Mahaprabhu bless him and take him to His eternal abode.

His disciples here in Mayapur are chanting along with other devotees and praying for their beloved Gurumaharaja,

Your servant,
Tusti Mohan Krsna das
