Naresh Prabhu will be remembered for his regular attendance on Sundays. Particularly, for his dedication in serving prasadam regularly and bringing offerings for their Lordships.
It was in the early 1980s while working in Hatfield that he came across ISKCON devotees. He visited Bhaktivedanta manor and was inspired to purchase and read all of Srila Prabhupada’s books. He soon became a life member of ISKCON and visited many centres in India, notably Vrindavan and Juhu. Later, he married Bharti and was soon proud to become father of his only son, Heeren, in 1993.
Being a chartered Aerospace engineer, he was highly committed to his daily work routine. At the same time, he was the most caring husband and father. He took great pleasure in distributing Bhagavad gita to friends as well as quoting verses. He taught his family with great emphasis on how to incorporate simple devotional activities into their daily routines such as by daily offering tulasi leaves to Lord Krishna or fasting on Ekadasi.
At the temple, he will be remembered for his regular attendance on Sundays. Particularly, for his dedication in serving prasadam regularly and bringing offerings for their Lordships. Many friends would recall him sharing recollections of his pilgrimages all over India with his family.
