Kirtan of Grief

On November 14, 1977, His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada passed away, surrounded by disciples singing Hare Krishna kirtan. Hansadutta was one of the disciples who had maintained a bedside vigil, singing kirtan for hours on end. After Srila Prabhupada had breathed his last, and was pronounced no more in that body, the devotees gathered in his small quarters continued to sing kirtan in unison. Here is the recording of that kirtan.
