Please accept my obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada!

Recently, on the 11th of March, six Mauritian devotees were killed in a car accident in the south of Mauritius. Among them, three were initiated devotees and three of them were devotee children.

Adiraj Prabhu and his wife, Vilasini Devi Dasi, two of the victims, were disciples of His Holiness Giriraj Swami. Adiraj Prabhu was a very ardent and dynamic preacher. He never liked to stay idle but wanted to preach in all circumstances, and on the eve of his death, he gave a lecture on the glories of Tulasi Devi. In fact, there is something that many Mauritian devotees are unaware of: Adiraj Prabhu is the one who sent the silas of Krsna and Balaram, who are being worshipped in our Radha Golokananda temple.

When Adiraj was in India, he went to the Gandhaki River and collected four silas. He then gave them to a Mauritian life member to hand them over to the head pujari, Govinda Chandra prabhu. And this life member handed the silas to Nrshingha Prabhu, who then gave them to the head pujari. Afterwards, two of those silas were placed on the altar as Krsna Balaram.

Adiraj Prabhu walked barefoot during the Vraja Mandala Parikrama. His feet were extremely sore, and blood was coming out profusely. However, he did not retreat, and he tried to tie leaves on his feet, but this also did not work, and at a point in time, he could no longer walk. Then only, did he accept slippers.

May Krsna bless Prabhu Adiraj, a devotee who had dedicated his whole life to serving Krsna. May Krsna also bless his wife, Vilasini Devi Dasi, who spent many years of her life as a full time devotee to serve Sri Sri Radha Golokananda, and may Krsna also shower His unlimited blessings upon their wonderful 17-month-old daughter, Radhika, who also left her body in the accident.

Your servant,
Bhaktin Yesha on behalf on Nrshingha Prabhu
