Thanks for all your reports in this hard time... It is very very hard/sad to read it all... My daughter wanted to take initiation from TKG and my wife did— I have second from him and he was very merciful to me...I did some service for him along time ago—1979-1980 around then, and since then he has always allowed me complete access to him. He could be in any big meeting, and I could walk in this room not matter where he was...he would invite me to take prasadam with him.. He especially was merciful to my wife...And before his operation for prostate cancer had a dream about my wife, Sakuntala. My 16 year old daughter would write him every four months and tell give him a report of what she was doing...he gave her intimate advice on how to deal with guys hitting on her at school etc.

It is very sad indeed. I helped him get ready for his first trip to the Far East and got him dressed in a suit etc. and how to answer immigration questions at the border. I was regional manager under him for Texas for a few years in the early 1980's. He is on about 10 percent of all our TV shows. I would not characterize him as a "sweet man" but he was very very kind to me and my family. He stayed at my house for a few years whenever he came to Houston Texas in the early 1980's. He had other nice devotees like H.H.Satsurupa stay here. We searched for the new Houston temple together.

Enough of my ramblings. I also had some small association with Jayapataka Swami, and he taught me how to do that nam hatta thing in Houston and it grew all over the place and it real really grew and people all over the USA thank me...But it was him in the early 1980's

Your indebted servant,
Pandava vijaya dasa
