Remembering the original hero of ISKCON Rathyatra festival – HG Jayanand Prabhu (15-16 Apr)20 Apr 2020, Posted by
ISKCON Punjabi Bagh organized a unique 2 day seminar on the life of one of Srila Prabhupada’s dearest disciples and ISKCON’s original rathyatra hero – HG Jayanand prabhu. Jayanand prabhu played a very vital role in taking lord Jagannath to different parts of the world by way of ecstatic rath yatras, where he would do everything, from fund raising, to publicity, to seeking government permissions as well as building huge carts for the most magnanimous lordships.
Besides being such an able organizer, what really differentiated Jayananda prabhu was his extreme humility and service attitude, never really caring for himself but living with a single pointed aim of serving his spiritual master. On Jayanand prabhu’s departure from the material world, Srila Prabhupada himself said that he has gone back to Godhead, such was the kind of love and relationship they shared
