From Madhu Sevita Das, GBC, Italy: 

“Where will I find that loving smile filled with care and affection that made you feel so important though you are worthless...., that caused you to remember Prabhupada in any circumstance..., that was pure sweetness… I am so angry at you for leaving me here unprotected.

Please accept my best wishes. All glories to Srila Prabhupada.

At 8.30am this morning, Florida time, I received a phone call from one of your more senior Godbrothers who is currently there.

Your Guru Maharaja had departed from this world, back to Srila Prabhupada and Srimati Radharani
