Sriman Acyuta Krishna Prabhu
Dear devotees !
I've received two Salagrama silas back , but this time I feel nectar mixed with poison. They belonged to Sriman Acyuta Krishna prabhu.
Sriman Acyuta Krishna Prabhu was a disciple of H.H. Hridayananda Das Goswami. Acyuta as I used to call him was very devoteed to Tulasi Devi, he lived in Franco da Rocha (state of Sao Paulo, Brazil ) and with his elder brother Sri Krishna and his family they changed the life of many people-by distributing Prasadam and organizing huge festivals, like Ratha Yatra .
He was very humble and ready to serve whoever he met without any discrimination.
In his sadhana he was very strict, always chanting his rounds, fasting for Ekadashi and above all, he was always enthusiastic.
With his big car (Veraneia) called Gauranga and Sri Krishna's car Nityananda, they used to travel to different festivals around Brazil – both cars were literally packed with devotees !!!
Once we traveled together to Gaura Vrindavana farm, where H.H. Purushatraya Swami kindly invited both of us to see his Salagrama Silas .He had a metal trunk full of Salagramas.
With Acyuta we couldn't believe our eyes – such beautiful Salagrama we have seen and each Salagrama was carefully enveloped in a piece of paper and Maharaja opened them one by one.I remember that Maharaja showed us his own Salagrama Sila, very beautiful indeed.
Three years ago- the day H.H. Bhakti Tirtha Swami came for the first time to Franco da Rocha Temple, I gave Acyuta one Salagrama , the big one , the next day we sat together and did the puja. Acyuta also received a Salagrama and a Govardhana sila from H.H.Rasananda Swami.
Then last year before leaving Brazil I gave Acyuta one more Salagrama ( Kalki , the black and white one).
On the 1st. of June 2006 Acyuta drove us to the Sao Paulo airport, where we hugged and cried in separation for the last time.
Acyuta left his body in a car accident on the 30 th. of may 2007, he was only 33 years old.
All glories to Sriman Acyuta Krishna Prabhu !!!!
All glories to Sri Salagrama Sila !!!!
