On the morning of 18 Oct, Sriman Vrajavasi Prabhu, a Srila Prabhupada disciple from Mexico, left this world. He was in a coma for a week, with his loving family caring for him as best they could. He was one of the first, and biggest, sankirtan devotees of Mexico. At one point in the mid and late 70s, he would distribute as much as 500-700 big books a day. After marriage, he was the temple president for Mexico City for some time. Then he moved to a smaller town, Celaya Mexico, where he set up a small business to maintain his family. He was very strict with his sadhana thoughout his family life. He dedicated himself to translating essential books for preaching into Spanish, even the Brahma Samhita. He would hold regular classes in his home, and organize vaisnava festivals, especially for young devotees. Whenever the sankirtan devotees would distribute in that area, he vacated a cottage and rooms in his home for their stay. His last translationg work was the Srila Prabhupada Siksamrta, and the first installation was the section on distributing books. He is suceeded by his wife and two Children, Lalita and Abhaya, both initiated devotees, who are also very strict in their spiritual lives, following in the footsteps of their father. His example and dedication have inspired hundreds of devotees to follow Krsna Consciousnes. All glories to Sriman Vrajavasi Prabhu!
