|His Grace Radha Giridhari dasa, disciple of His Holiness Partha Sarathi Das Goswami from Durban, South Africa, who joined in the early 90’s passed away on August 18, 2020 from complications due to COVID-19. He was only 58 years old.|
Radha Giridhari prabhu was one of the most significant preachers in the greater Durban community, bringing many, many people to Krishna consciousness. His kirtans were very sweet and attractive and his classes were very encouraging and inspiring.
He was also especially known for his commitment to caring for devotees, a cherished engagement he directly received from his spiritual master. Radha Giridhari prabhu would daily connect with devotees, encourage them and, according to his capacity, make arrangements to relieve any challenging situations they were undergoing. He truly was an emblem of service to all devotees.
The devotees in South Africa are shocked by his sudden departure. He will be deeply missed but the devotees are convinced that his destination is most auspicious and glorious, at the lotus feet of Srila Prabhupada serving Lord Caitanya’s sankirtan mission.
