Back to Vrindavana: Srila Prabhupada’s final lila


This is a new riveting, poignant account of Srila Prabhupada’s last weeks in Vrindavan by Hari Sauri Dasa.

The narration begins on September 29, 1977, when Hari-Sauri landed at the Bombay airport, in India for his one-month stint as Prabhupada’s visiting GBC. When Hari-Sauri arrived in Juhu, he found Srila Prabhupada in his quarters, emaciated and bedridden. Even in that condition, however, Prabhupada inquired about Hari-Sauri’s health and how his books were selling in Australia, where Hari-Sauri was GBC.

Hari-Sauri Prabhu served Srila Prabhupada in Vrindavan from October 2 to 27, and in Back to Vrindavana he describes the events of each day, based on the detailed diary he kept during that period.

The title Back to Vrindavana has great significance. Srila Prabhupada went back to Vrindavan to spend his last days, Hari-Sauri went back to Vrindavan to serve His Divine Grace there, and after Srila Prabhupada’s departure, Hari-Sauri went back to Vrindavan for Srila Prabhupada’s disappearance festival. And beyond the events described in the book  Back To Vrindavana, Prabhupada went back to Vrindavan after having lived there from 1960 to 1965, translating Srimad-Bhagavatam and preparing to go to the West, and in 1975 Hari-Sauri went back to Vrindavan, where he first became Srila Prabhupada’s personal servant. By his preaching, Srila Prabhupada brought us all back to Vrindavan, and now we want to follow him back to Goloka Vrindavan, the Vrindavan in the spiritual world.
