Dear devotees of Sri Jagannatha Mandir.
Please accept my humble obeisances.
All glories to Srila Prabhupada.
I am greatly shocked and sorry to hear of the sudden demise of the temple president of SJM, His Grace Uttama Caitanya Prabhu. He was a pillar of strength to the temple and its congregation.
He had to carry a lot of responsibility to keep the temple running with only very few full time devotees but he was never in anxiety and was always calm and cool.
He was always available to answer any queries or to arrange for the convenience of the visiting devotees. He took bold steps to renovate the temple building and to organise the mentor programme.He lived very simply and ate frugally. He keeps a good sadhana regularly attending the morning programme despite having to sleep late due to His participation in outside preaching programmes.
I always found him to be kind and gentle.Certainly his demise is a great loss for SJM and the Malaysia yatra.
We will all feel his loss for years and years to come.
At the same time we have hope that he has achieved shelter in the eternal service of the Lord.I offer my respect obeisances to him and thank him for all his kindness and mercy and pray for his successin achieving the goal of life.
In service to guru and Gauranga,
