Heartfelt Condolences

Hare Krsna.

I am terribly saddened by the sudden tragic passing of His Holiness Tamal Krsna Goswami and Vrndavanesvari devi dasi and the injuries suffered by her husband and the driver of the taxi en route to the Calcutta airport. I offer my sincerest, deepest, and most heartfelt condolences to all the devotees of Lord Krsna who will suffer pangs of separation and grief at the disappearance of these two great and humble devotees. I joined ISKCON in 1991 in Berkeley, California, and had the very good fortune and opportunity to meet His Holiness on more than one occasion, and always looked forward with great enthusiasm to his visits to the Bay Area. I am deeply shocked by this horrible mishap.

Equipped with imperfect senses and a profound lack of humility—in other words the conditioned soul that I am—I automatically want to find fault with the poor and dangerous driving habits and blatant disregard for human life and the rules and laws, or lack thereof, of driving safety commonly found on roads throughout India. But focusing on gross negligence and who to blame is inauspicious and low class, so I would just rather say please be careful while driving. The world's roadways are very indiscriminate in selecting victims. There's danger at every turn.

Again my condolences to the ISKCON family and the families of the devotees involved. Hare Krsna.

Thank you,

Arjuna dasa
fallen disciple of Srila Bhaktiswarupa Damodar Maharaja
