Hansadutta das (May 1941 – April 2020)

Hansadutta das passed on Saturday, 25 April 2020 at around 6:25 pm California time. The day was akshaya-tritiya, and the nakshatra was Rohini. At the time when he left his body, his family were by his side, singing kirtan along with a recording of Srila Prabhupada. When is death auspicious?

‘If you can remember Kṛṣṇa, Hare Kṛṣṇa, hari-kīrtana, at the time of death, then you are successful.’

–Srila Prabhupada, Lecture, Srimad-Bhagavatam 6.1.27-34, Surat, December 17, 1970
