1st May 1952 – 9th March 2011
Beloved son, devoted father, loving husband, kind friend and faithful devotee of Lord Krishna.
From his early visits to Bhaktivedanta Manor in the late seventies and early eighties, Harivamsa Prabhu’s connection to Sri Sri Radha Gokulananda blossomed. He devoted extensive time to a variety of devotional service, above and beyond his family responsibilities.
His hospitality and kindness touched many hundreds of devotees, and he has been an unmissable part of the Manor’s festivals throughout the years. He served on the Manor’s Patrons Council and Festival Committee for many years, and together with his wife Krsnapurna dasi encouraged and mentored thousands of individuals in their Krishna conscious journeys. He could regularly be spotted managing the temple darshan queue and the Sunday car parks.
From its early days, Harivamsa Prabhu taught in the Manor’s Sunday School, (which later became Krishna Club) and assisted many devotees with eye care and optician services both in this country and in eye camps abroad. He offered substantial service for Jagannath’s Snana Yatra and Rathayatra festivals. Harivamsa Prabhu’s extensive service over the years will not be forgotten.
