HG Akinchana Krsna Das Prabhu Passed Away in Vrindavan from Covid
By Krishna Kishora
Our dear Bhakti Brothers Yogi & Ananda’s father also just passed away.
Akinchana Krsna Das was telling me that he has been giving amazing Bhagavatam classes in Vrindavan and shared this link of a class he gave two weeks ago, April 20, 2021.
What an ecstatic class!
We are so fortunate to have a large family of devotees that are tasting the nectar of Krsna Katha. I pray that I can one day have a taste like these great devotees.
Please send your love to Ananda Murti Das & Yogindra Das and their mother.
Please Pray for These Departed Vaishnavas
It is with great distress that we inform the entire devotee community about the loss that we have experienced in ISKCON Vrindavan. Vaishnava association is one of the most important limbs of devotional service and the greatest treasure of life, and losing Vaishnavas is the only irreparable loss that one can experience. Due to the ongoing outspread of Corona Virus, we have lost five wonderful devotees who were a part of our community in ISKCON Vrindavan.
These devotees, namely:
Vrindavan Bihari Das Prabhu
Sat Dharma Das Prabhu,
Radha Devi Dasi Mataji
Jayananda Das Prabhu
These Vaishnavas will be greatly missed. We pray to Sri Sri Gaur Nitia, Sri Sri Krishna Balarama, Sri Sri Radha Shyamsundar and Srila Prabhupada to take them into the eternal shelter of their most cooling lotus feet.
The struggle against the second wave of the virus has only just begun, and we have already had to experience such a shock of losing these devotees.
In the event that a devotee contracts this virus, our Devotee Care Department provides them with medical and emotional support, to the best of their ability. They are also always ready to give any sort of assistance needed by devotees who are feeling unwell and showing slight symptoms similar to Covid. At present, Covid -19 is infecting many of our congregational and community members.
Krishna Balarama Mandira is therefore requesting the support of the international community of devotees and well-wishers to help us through the Covid crisis in Vrindavan.
We are urgently in need of donations to provide oxygen and medication for those affected.
Please find below the link to send your donation today.
May Sri Sri Radhey Syama, Krishna Balarama and Sri Sri Gaur Nitai bless you and keep you and your loved ones safe.
We look forward to greeting you all once again in Sri Vrindavan Dhama once the situation improves.

Prayer Request for Mahasrnga Das (ACBSP)
Who is Hospitalized with Covid.
Mahasrnga Prabhu has just been transported by ambulance to the hospital suffering from advanced COVID. Perhaps we can all say a prayer for the spiritual and material well-being of one of Srila Prabhupada's dedicated disciples.
HH Bhakti Raghava Maharaja Official Health Update:
April 20, 2021
Please accept my obeisances.
All glories to Srila Prabhupada.
By Lord Krishna’s mercy & by the good prayers of devotees, the Maharaja’s health situation is improving day by day, as Maharaja is taking Prasadam very well and sumptuously, sleeping well at night and now he has started to take small speaking engagements.
Overall, the general condition is stable. His cough is also subsiding. Krishna willing he will be back to a more regular routine. Hopefully, he will be take up the daily Srimad-Bhagavatam classes soon. Although he participates in Zoom conferences, but other than a few scheduled but temporarily delayed conferences calls he will not continue for now.
He’s observing all the precautionary measures to avoid cross-infection, still not mixing with devotees other than his personal assistants.
Everyone please continue offering the most sincere prayers for His Holiness Bhakti Raghava Swami Maharaja to recover fully.

Hare Krishna Dear Vaishnavas,
Prayers are requested for Gaur Gopal Prabhu, who lives in Vrindavan and who fell ill with the new variation of COVID-19.
Wonderful Vaishnava living in Vrindavan, Gour Gopal Prabhu, got a new type of coronavirus infection. In need of prayers of devotees please.
′′ Hare Krishna, dear Vaishnavas, Please accept my obeisances.
I need your help in the form of prayers to Lord Krishna. I received Krishna's mercy in the form of coronavirus. In India, a mutation has emerged, which now makes 250-300 thousand people sick every day. The virus did not bypass me, although I was already sick with them in November - the old version. This time it's getting a little heavier, six days now the temperature is 38.5-39.7 and it's not getting easier, but I'm sick for a couple of weeks.
If you want to help me, please pray to Krishna - if Krishna wants to, then let me be His faithful servant someday.
Gour Gopal Das
Editor’s Note: Dear Devotees, PLEASE Pray for Gour Gopal Prabhu. If it is Krsna’s desire, please ask the Lord to heal His dear devotee so he can continue his service in the Holy Dhama of Vrindavan. Thank you!

Her Grace Rupa Manjari Devi Dasi

A few months ago, Mataji fell ill and unfortunately her condition is deteriorating. She is experiencing immense pain. Mataji’s humble request is for the Vaisnavas to please pray for her.
It is only by the Guru’s mercy and the earnest prayers of the devotees that we can attract the attention of the Lord.
Please pray for Mataji. Thank you.
