Puspa-Samadhi of Padmalochan Das

Fri, Oct 29, 2010  from Vrindavan Lila Dasi

Hare Krishna!
Please accept my humble obeisancies.
All glories to Srila Prabhupada!

The day after tomorrow, on Sunday 31 October, devotees headed by Jananivasa
Prabhu (from Mayapur) will be making puspa-samadhi of Padmalochan Das, at
ISKCON Govardhan.

The puspa-samadhi program on Sunday will be as follows:
In the morning around 8-9 am Jananivasa prabhu with Mayapur sankirtan
brahmacharis, and any other devotees wishing to attend will make the
puspa-samadhi of Padmalochan Das at ISKCON Govardhan, near the place of
Krishna's tax pastimes with the gopis. There will be some prasadam
distributed to assembled vaisnavas (sweets as I understand). At 2 pm there
will be a feast for Srila Prabhupada disciples at ISKCON Govardhan.
(I am not arranging this personally, so this is the information I was given
by my friends, who arrange the program)

On the same day in Mayapur around 9am devotees will assemble for kirtan &
prasad program in Sruti-Bhavan bld (former Youth Forum) near Gosala, in the
rooms where Prabhu was taken from to join Prabhupada-nitya-lila, seven
months ago.

His life's work is Govardhan guide (book Madhurya Dhama) he spent 20 years
of his life in Vrindavan, researching the Dham on the order of Srila
Prabhupada, who gave him personal instruction to write books about Holy
Dham.
It is his research and work that have became basis of knowledge of
Vraja-parikrama and pastime places for devotees these days.

Padmalochan Das has very special place in Vraja, Govardhan in particularly
(it is so wheither there is a physical samdhi or not).

Jananivasa Prabhu, his best friend, will be personally doing the
puspa-samadhi installation at Govardhana with Mayapur sankirtan
brahmacharis, brijabasis and all other vaisnavas who wish to come there to
participate.

I have made 2 blogs for my husband (work in progress):

http://padmalochan.wordpress.com/

If any of devotees reading this would like to share personal memmories of
Padmalochan das, I would much appreciate - just write whatever your true
expirience of him was - to give a better perspective of his personality. I
would like to write a book about him aventually where this memories will be
included, but for now will be published in his blog.

Thank you,
Hare Krishna,
your servant, Vrindavan Lila Dasi
