On behalf of everyone at Hindu Forum of Europe, I would like to express our most sincere sadness at the passing of Shri Srutidharma Dasji who was our spiritual leader. In this time of great sorrow, please know that HFE is with Bhaktivedanta Manor and our thoughts and prayers are with you.
Srutidharma Dasji was the Temple president at Bhaktivedanta Manor and has been diagnosed with a form of brain cancer couples of months ago. The news was unexpected as there had been no previous indications.
It is with great sadness we are announcing the departure of his Grace Srutidharma Das. He passed away on Tuesday 10th March at Bhaktivedanta Manor, the temple where he dedicated his life in devotional service. Having been diagnosed with cancer in early 2018, Sruitidharma Prabu’s condition meant, he had to withdraw from active service. He then spent his time absorbed in Krishna consciousness. During this time he continued to inspire both guests and personal carers with his expressed love and deep gratitude.
Without complaint he accepted his condition as the Lord’s mercy upon him, though he might progress his inner life more deeply. In his final hours he was serene and without discomfort. His passing was auspicious as was his life surrounded by devotees, chanting the Lord’s holy names, in the holy place of Bhaktivedanta Manor, Hare Krishna temple.
If there is anything you need during this difficult time, please do not hesitate to reach out to your church family for support. We are here for you, emotionally, spiritually, and physically.
