Subuddhi das “Suicide By Cop” (?)

It appears that Subuddhi Prabhu did not actually commit suicide. He was shot by the police! Subuddhi had been living in his truck for many years on private property at the LA Temple. He received notice that he had a month to get current registration etc. even though he wasn’t even driving it. The city was demanding he pay huge fees for all the years it was unregistered.

Subuddhi became frustrated as he had no funds to comply. It came to within 24 hours of the time he was supposed to move or have his home towed away and he went over to the police station angry and complaining and he ended up shot to death! read more

Ananta Shanti left body last night in Moscow

Hare Krishna! dear devotees, Please accept my humble obeisancies. All glories to Srila Prabhupada!
Today Ananta Shanti – the first and only initiated disciple of Srila Prabhupada left his body either from stroke or heart-attack (reports aren’t clear), in Moscow. He was the first one in Russia to meet and receive direct training from Srila Prabhupada personally. Srila Prabhupada was in Moscow only few days, he really focused on Anatoliy, who shortly became Ananta Shanti, Srila Prabhupada imparted His mission into him over just couple of days, then He left Russia for London.

As soon as He arrived in London He asked Mandakini mataji to go to Russia immediately and marry Ananta Shanti. She did so. They were meeting people together, holding underground meetings… but KGB figured out pretty soon her real purpose and they banned her from coming to Russia again… So, Ananta Shanty was left on his own. Few other disciples of Srila Prabhupada were coming from Europe occasionally to encourage him, but for most of the time he was on his own to spread the mission of Srila Prabhupada. read more
