HG Aindra Prabhu attains the spiritual realm

He reasons ill who says that Vaisnavas die,
When thou art living still in sound!
The Vaisnavas die to live, and living try
To spread the holy name around.
His Grace Aindra Prabhu Attains the Spiritual Realm With extreme anguish we inform the devotees of the disappearance of His Grace Aindra Prabhu on the night of July 16, 2010. He was alone in his room worshiping His beloved Deities when apparently there was a gas leak from his cylinder. Some devotees heard a sound and there was some smell, but no one knew from where it came. Devotees knocked on Aindra’s door, but there was no response all night. His door is very thick, and there is one trap door in it. In the morning when Aindra prabhu didn’t come to the temple to dress Sri Sri Radha Shyamasundara, the devotees then could understand that something serious had happened. With difficulty they broke open the trap door, and only one devotee, Adi Kesava Das, was small enough to enter the room. When he entered he saw that the entire room was black and there was disturbance everywhere. It appeared that Aindra might have lit a match in the room and that caused the gas in the air to ignite and burn the room. Aindra was behind the altar. It looked as if he had tried to open the window, but was unsuccessful, so he offered his obeisances behind Sri Sri Gaura Nitai, and left his body in that position. When Adi Kesava found him, Aindra was already long gone, and his body was still offering obeisances.
At this moment the formalities are under way to bring Aindra Prabhu in procession to Sri Yamunaji. The entire Vaisnava community will surely lament at the disappearance of such a stalwart kirtaniya who inspired the world with akhanda kirtana. His saintly guidance and example as a pure and devoted disciple of Srila Prabhupada has certainly qualified him for express entry into the eternal lila of his beloved Lords, Sri Sri Radha Shyamasundara.
More information will be posted throughout the day.

  • all glories to aindra prabhu, a grand disciple of srila prabhupada...he inspired thousands of spiritual seekers to take up krishna consciousness including me through hi songs...may the vaishnava's,guru,gaurangga and hari shower their mercy onto aindra prabhu where he will be in the eternal service of singing for radha syamasundara-gaura nitai-krishna balaram.......jai sri radhey......gaura premanande hari hari bol!!!!
  • oh krishna...no words..There can never be another like him.
  • As Srila Prabhpada said, leaving one's body in Vrindavana is a feat awarded to only very qualified devotees of the Lord as one goes back to Godhead immediately. Radharani Herself has escorted Aindra Prabhu to the Godhead. The incident may have been just a reason showcased for this leaving. And as Mahesh prabhu very rightly said, Aindra Prabhu left much earlier to Krsna Dham before it all happened. Hari Bol! Srila Prabhupada ki jay, and all glories to his disciples like HG Aindra Prabhu.
  • Thanks for the answer an eye opener!
  • well this is what i herd mohit prabhu... whenever Krsna want's His devotees. He just take them with Him. He don't care what world will think..
  • H.G Aindra Prabhu served Krishna upto his last brethe. My condolences to the family of vaishnavas & devotees knowing H.G Aindra Prabhu..May Krishna be with him always..Hare Krishna..!
  • Mohit Prabhu,
    How do you say it is a horrible death? To me there cannot be a more glorious passing than his. Serving Krishna till the end (in the vision of this material world)
  • What a loss to the community of devotees. I was reading his website and it was like being shaken into wakefulness. I found so much inspiration to take chanting more seriously than I am doing now and try and increase the rounds if I can. Of all our activities in KC, chanting, keerthan should always remain as top priority if we should call ourselves the inheritors of the sankeerthan movement of Sri. Chaithanya Mahaprabhu. And in preaching too, there should be no endeavour to minimise the importance of chanting the mahamanthra.

    HG Aindra Prabhu Ki jay.
  • Dear Mohit Prabhu,
    Your question is quite intelligent. Here is the answer: Just before two days HG Aindra prabhu told his Disciples that,"now i wish to go back to Goloka" again the same evening i.e. 16th he said,... "I now wish to go back to Goloka" ...so Sri Sri RadhaShyamsunder fulfilled the desire of Their pure devotee. To say about the departure which people think as "horrible death" he was found offering obeisances and there was a gas leakage the whole night and is it possible that he wouldn't even smell it a bit?!!!!! It is to be clearly understood that Their Lordships came to escort him and after he left there was a display of Krishna's lila for atheist to leave bhakti...that's what i have understood in my long experience of reading Srila Prabhupada's books with the mercy of our spiritual master. Advanced devotees may explain it in a better way
    your servant,
  • I have a question...please forgive my ignorance...
    Why such a great devotee who is 24 hours engaged in Kirtan....got such a horrible death???????
