Update on my father Mithiladhisa Prabhu (acbsp).
A few days ago, my father was found without a pulse and was rushed to the emergency room. He remained in critical condition, unconscious, on artificial life support for a few days until the doctors could diagnose the severity of his condition. They have determined that he won't survive.
My father didn't want to remain on artificial life support for any prolonged period. So, we have decided to stop the machines at an auspicious time, on the morning of Mohini Ekadasi (Pacific time) Wednesday, April 25th between 6:00-7:00am.
We are petitioning all Vaishnavas and aspiring Vaishnavas to please send their prayers and good wishes for the benefit of his soul. Please pray for his successful journey forward on the path of bhakti and that Srila Prabhupada, Srila Gurudeva and his Guru Varga will keep him close to them.
And please share at least some portion of the benefit of your Ekadasi vrata for him. His final message to me was, "Trying to focus on Guru and Mahaprabhu-Radha Vinodebihari as best I can....Your good wishes are valuable. ￼Hope all is well with you and Sudevi and that both of you are abundantly inspired.
Regards to all I know and don't know yet."
[PADA: He was always kind and friendly with me. May Krishna bless his future destination. God speed and good luck! ys pd]
