Guru Gauranga Prabhu had joined Vishnudutas Volunteers Network recently and was enthused about assisting those at the end stage of life to hear and chant the Hare Krsna Maha Mantra. He was taking care of his own mother who was a bit sick. But the drastic decline in the health of his mother was worrisome. He took inspiration from the team Vishnudutas to continue to help his mother spiritually and medically. Devotees visited him and chanted with mother.
On one day Guru Gauranga noted that his mother has stopped the intake of any food. He alerted the team Vishnudutas. The devotees quickly coordinated and planned to perform continuous kirtan at the house of Guru Gauranga Prabhu from next day.
However, on the morning of the next day, Guru Gauranga kept a photo of the Deity and chanted Mangalarathi prayers while his mother listened and responded. It was her last moments. She left her body listening to the mahamantra! What a glorious departure! Krsna has bestowed her the greatest mercy! May she be an inspiration to all of us! May Sri Krsna bestow similar mercy to us and all! Hare Krsna!
