Title: Blasts in Mumbai

User: Swami Gaurangapada Date: 2006-07-13 07:14:49


Nityananda! Gauranga! Hare Krishna! We are very sad to hear of the serial bomb blasts in Mumbai's local trains which have killed more than 200 people and injured many more. There is no news yet of any Nityananda Gauranga Hare Krishna devotees or their families etc. being affected by the blast. Lord Nityananda protected them.


I have offered my prayers to the lotus feet of Lord Nityananda for the departed souls that even though they had to suffer such intense and gruesome pain due to their past karma because nothing happens by chance and many of them were non-devotees, please let them get a chance to start their Naam bhajan and Bhakti yoga in their future lives and let their families awaken to spiritual understanding and knowledge. And also a prayer to Lord Nityananda that due to this sorrowful incident, please let some more souls in this world realize the constantly flickering, temporary and fickle nature of human life and turn to the Holy Names of Nityananda, Gauranga and Hare Krishna for full shelter and protection and thus confirm their destination to the spiritual world at the time of death where there is no birth, old age, disease, death and best of all NO BOMBS!!!


Daaso'smi, Swami Gaurangapada.

Dear devotees/friends,

Please accept my humble obeisances.



There were 7 consecutive blasts in Mumbai Western Railway Local trains

in Bhayandar, Borivali, Jogeshwari, Khar, Bandra,Matunga etc. All of

them in 1st class compartments.All between 6.30 to 7.00 pm.


There was a blast in my compartment at Khar. I was chanting & went to

sleep while chanting & suddenly the blast woke me up & all that I

found was some dead people right infront of me & some very very

seriously injured people on my lap. I was feeling very dizzy &

experienced loss of hearing. With difficulty I released myself. My

bead bag remained in my hand but the beads were misplaced. I lost my

bag which contained both my mobiles & my telephone diary also. Hence I

have lost all my contact nos. I was one of the very few people in my

compartment who remained alive. Many people lost their hand. Very soon

I found my beads also, not bag. I am safe.


There are damages in both my ear drums, mainly in left ear. Doctor

said it would take 3-4 weeks for recovery. I hear very less now. Minor

injuries on back, hands, legs.


I came to know after I reached home that my father was in another

train & faced similar blast in his compartment. He suffered minor

injuries on body & head. He was taken to Hinduja hospital. He is also

safe. My younger sister & brother were in another train & their train

was also was blasted. But they were in different 1st class



Please pray for me.


Your insignificant servant,

Prashant Rathi

Even though I dont know you, I was very sorry to hear of your experience Prashant Rathi, I had heard of the bombs on the news in England, but we dont really hear from people affected by it. Hearing how it was for you made it seem alot more real and i just wanted to wish you all the best after what you have been through.


I really hope you get better soon, your hearing returns, and that the shock of what happened isnt too hard for you. I really hope that you and your family make a speedy recovery.
