Lakshmi-priya dd loses her son

Post Author: Swami Gaurangapada    Date: 2007-11-04 04:43:09
Nityananda! Gauranga! Hare Krishna! Jaya Shri Guru Parampara! Pranams! I have just received news that Lakshmi-priya devi dasi lost her son in an accident who was trying to be a devotee. It is one of the hardest moments to lose one's son. But I understand that she has accepted it very stoically with proper philosophical understanding.

I will certainly pray to Lord Nitaai for a spiritual destination for his soul and pray that she accepts and understands it as the desire of the Lord. I request all the devotees to pray and chant for her son's soul. I have suggested that she read Shoka Shatana (part of Gitamala) by Shrila Bhaktivinoda Thakura which describes the pastime of Shrila Shrivasa Thakura losing his son and how he accepted it and became free of all grief.

Daaso'smi, Swami Gaurangapada.

It is good that you are facing this loss with sobriety and with Gauranga Krishna conscious understanding and that Nitaipada is visiting. Thank you for your kind words.

Daaso'smi, Swami Gaurangapada.

Nityananda Gauranga Hare Krsna
I want to humbly express my condolences to Laksmi-priya devi dasi in this hard times. I recently got son and can not evan imagine how hard must be when parent lose his or her child. In raising child there is so much love and sacrifice needed. This material world is not safe place - padam padam ya vipadam na tesam, on every step there is danger. Death may came at any moment and simply take us. Only devotees of Lord are protected and Lord Krsna is describing that truth in Bhagavad Gita 9.31.
kaunteya pratijanihi
na me bhaktah pranasyati
O son of Kunti, declare it boldly that My devotee never perishes.
Such hard moments are showing us that we really need to go to eternal realm. then we will never again be in position to lose someone we love.
My prayers are with you,
Daaso'smi, Igor
Nityananda Gauranga Hare Krsna
