All glories to Srila Prabhupada!
With heart full of pain I have to inform you about recent passing away of HG Suhotra das Tapovanacari from this world. His body was found on Monday 9th April 2007 in his room in Mayapur Gurukula.
Muniraja Prabhu's letter: "Doctor confirmed that death was natural, it seems the heart had just stopped. He was lying peacefully in his bed, holding his beads. Maharaja was on a marathon to write study materials for Srimad Bhagavatam and was fully absorbed into it for last weeks and months. He gave wonderful Bhagavatam class in Gurukula on last week's Tuesday. He said this will be his last lecture for this spring, since he will be dedicated to writing, "enjoy while you can", he said in a jolly mood. Later I thought that Krsna spoke through him and told that it was to be the last lecture for ever."
Hari Sauri Prabhu: "He did tremendous service for many years, was resident here in Mayapur for the last few years, he left his body here in Mayapur and therefore we can say without doubt that he got the full blessings of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu and Srila Prabhupada. I have no doubt he went back to Godhead."
His services in terms of management, book distribution, preaching & lecture engagement and literary work are to be remembered. As Lord Krishna says in the Gita: "For one who explains this supreme secret to the devotees, pure devotional service is guaranteed, and at the end he will come back to Me. There is no servant in this world more dear to Me than he, nor will there ever be one more dear."
Let us pray for his mercy on us.

Morning Worship at Bhakta Michael's Flat
This altar goes with me everywhere. On the far left is Sri Giriraja Govardhana-shila; then the wooden Nepali-style three-in-one picture altar topped by Sri-Sri Nila-Sudarshana (the daru-brahman or wooden Deity form of Jagannatha-Sudarshana); in front of the Jagannatha-as-Gopijanaballabha picture are Sri-Sri Jagannatha-Sudarshana in the form of four shaligram-shilas; to the left of these shilas are Sri Radha-charana (Srimati Radharani's lotus feet); standing in front of the Jagannatha-shilas and Sri Radha-charana is the small Sri-Sri Ananta-Nrimsha murti; on the far right is Sri-Sri Laksmi-Sesasayi, in other words Laksmi, Narayana and Anantasesha combined together in one shaligram-shila.
The largest shila (upper left) is Sri Jagannatha. Next to Him (upper right) is Sri Purushottama. Next (lower right) is Sri Sudarshana, and then (lower left) is Sri Jagannatha Sudarshana. Sri Jagannatha and Sri Purushottama each have chakras visible in Their forms. Since Sri Sudarshana is a shaligram-shila (i.e. Visnu-tattva), He too is Jagannatha and Sudarshana combined. Thus each of these shilas is in truth Jagannatha-Sudarshana, though They are differently named. Cushioned by gunja-mala, a string of beads dear to Srimati Radharani, They sit upon Their brass Sudarshana throne
The golden lotus feet of Srimati Radharani. Note the symbols peeking out from under the flower petals.
Srimati Radharani stands in separation next to Her Lord Jagannatha.
Sri-Sri Ananta-Nrsimha ki jaya!
