Press Release

Announcing the passing of Hansadutta das


With great sorrow we report that Hansadutta das has left his mortal shell, as of today, 25 April. In recent months he had been suffering from acute pancreatitis, but in late March it was discovered that he had advanced cancer of the pancreas. Hansadutta, who would have been 80 in May, spent his final days chanting and sometimes singing the holy names alternating with listening to Srila Prabhupada's lectures.

Prabhupada’s direct order

Bringing prior instructions given by Prabhupada to contradict a later direct order – such as the letter of July 9, 1977, the formal directive designating ritvik representatives – is crazy.

SRILA PRABHUPADA: “I may say many things to you, but when I say something directly, “Do it”, your first duty is to do that. You cannot argue, “Sir, you said me like this before.” No, that is not your duty. What I say now, you do it. That is obedience. If the captain of the ship says “Five degrees starboard” and the first mate replies, “But captain, before you told me ‘Ten degrees port’,” then it can be understood that the first mate has gone insane.” — lecture by Srila Prabhupada on the Srimad-Bhagavatam, Hyderabad, India, April 15, 1975

The Bhaktivedanta VedaBase, e-library of Srila Prabhupada’s books, letters, lectures, conversations and more, compiled using Folio Infobase, is an invaluable resource for anyone who is interested in reading or researching the works of Srila Prabhupada.

Now, however, Bhaktivedanta Archive’s latest update to The Bhaktivedanta VedaBase, the new VedaBase 2011.1, has finally stripped it of Srila Prabhupada’s original books, except for Bhagavad-gita. more

Letter of July 9, 1977 – The Final Order

Bhaktivedanta Purports

As Srila Prabhupada’s disciples, our function is simply to deliver these two BHAGAVATAS, the book and the person, Srila Prabhupada. It is the function of the disciples to confirm the instructions of the spiritual master, and give assistance to the new candidates. It is not their function to use Srila Prabhupada’s books for alluring new candidates to increase their personal following, as it seems to be the case today.
