Dear Mayapur Community Devotees,
Please accept our humble obeisances!
All glories to Srila Prabhupada!
At 8:33am this morning, in the auspicious Holy Dham of Sri Mayapur, beloved disciple of His Holiness Jayapataka Maharaja and servant of Srila Prabhupada, His Holiness Bhakti Nityananda Swami, has left his body. It is with great sadness that we announce this news, as he has been very dear and important to all of us in our Mayapur community. He has given many years of tireless and steadfast service to ISKCON Mayapur, and the amount of people he was able to bring to Krishna Consciousness has made him truly a leader in Mahaprabhu’s preaching mission.
To honor his passing, Maharaja’s body will be brought to the temple for a final darshan between 11am-12pm, and will thereafter be taken to Jagannath Mandir in Rajapur for samadhi ceremony. We encourage all devotees to participate in bidding farewell to Maharaja, with all respects in the most glorious manner befitting a Vaishnava. For those that cannot attend, we kindly request you keep HH Bhakti Nityananda Maharaja in your hearts and minds as you all continue in your Krishna Consciousness.
Thank you very much,
Sri Mayapur Co-Directors
