12 Dec 1957 – 8 Apr 2022
Akinchana prabhu was born and brought up in Malaysia, and was known by his friends to be very competent at a variety of sports, even winning prizes. These skills stayed with him for the rest of his life, in which he engaged with humility and detachment.
By the 1980s he was living in Bhaktivedanta Manor’s ashram where he performed all kinds of services and especially community outreach. By the late 80s he also preached in East Africa.
He was extremely dedicated to his guru Gaur Govinda Swami and for ten years he was based in Vrindavan, with his wife Jahnavaa dasi. However in his final years he was living local to the Manor.
All those who knew him the most described him as very learned, devoted, tolerant, compassionate, possessed a great sense of humour and always relished Prasad!
