Dear Devotees,

Mayapur (15-3-02) 1:30 pm

This is to update you. HH Tamal Krsna Goswami's body will be arriving in Mayapur in the next few hours, maybe at 2:30 or 3:00 pm, from Ranaghat. As per his will HH will be buried in Mayapur (we got his last will from Dallas temple) and all the senior God brothers and disciples are taking care, as a sannyasi’s body should not be cremated, and he will have a samadhi in Mayapur and a puspa samadhi in an ashram in Govardhan- Vrndaban.

Devotees met in HH Bhakticaru Swami's quarters and glorified him. HG Keshava Bharati Prabhu read his will and crying was glorifying his dear God brother as well all the other devotees and other are having constantly kirtan in the temple room. HH Radhanath Swami and HH Giridhari Swami and HH Sridhara Swami, HH Guruprasada Swami, HH Prahladananda Swami, HH Vedavyasapriya Swami were all present at this moment and waiting for the arrival of the body of HH TKG to do all the rituals and ceremony and according to the tradition he has to be put in Samadhi before sunset of today itself. The program will be done with a Gurupuja in the temple and glorification from God brothers in a room in conch building and than there will be his moving to a samadhi. We also came to know that HH passed away in the place were Srila Haridas Thakura chanted 300,000 names of Krsna and where he initiated Maya, so it is in a very auspicious place as well it is part of Gaura mandala.

Unfortunately we have to report that Vrndabanesvari dd, wife of Kalasambara das from New Zealand, who was traveling with them passed away, and another devotee, Aghabid das, is in the hospital. We hope that he will recuperate soon. He was a personal servant of Maharaja. Kalasambara das is now in good condition.

Here in Mayapur, Sacidulal das, disciple of HH Tamal Krsna Maharaja, is taking care of the communication with other devotees.

I had the opportunity to transcribe the will of HH Tamal Krsna Maharaja dictated by phone to HH Giridhar Swami (personaly HH is taking care of many procedures and having meetings with other senior Godbrothers), and now they are waiting for the legal procedures to bring the body back to Mayapur.

It is the first time that the body of a senior disciple of Srila Prabhupada will be buried in Mayapur.

HH Jayapataka Swami, HH Bhakti Caru Swami and HH Niranjana Swami are in the Hospital with HH TKG.

Your servant,
Tusti Mohan Krsna das
