In Memoriam HG JAGANNATHA MISRA DAS
It is with great sadness that we acknowledge the sudden unexpected passing of HG Jagannatha Misra das, on the early morning of Saturday, July 30th, 2022 in Alachua. He was going through some health challenges.
Jagannatha prabhu was a big book distributor and collector for New Vrindavana in the early days. He also worked on the construction projects there and took care of cows. He spent a period of time in France as a married man. He was deeply affected by the passing of his best friend Jagadisvara dasa a few months ago. Both of them served together in New Vrindavana for a number of years.
Jagannatha das moved to Alachua in the early 2000’s. He worked for devotees caring for horses, cows, and gardening. He often ate lunch at the temple with his cohort of temple devotees.
He will be missed. We pray that his journey takes him to the lotus feet of Srila Prabhupada.
The letter below is written by HG Radha Krishna das
Dear Jagganatha Misra Prabhu. You where a kind and generous friend. Always thinking of others while living a life of austerity. I will miss your association and your words of encouragement. You did huge service for Srila Prabhupada through book distribution. In 1976 you were the biggest distributor in New Vrndavan if not the world. Lord Krishna never forgets and I will always remember you as a dear friend. Thank you for your association. Your friend Radha Krishna das.
