ISKCON devotee Srikant Das passed away on November 10 from complications resulting from congestive heart failure. A resident of ISKCON's New York temple in Brooklyn since 1997, he served as the temple's Chief Cook and was well known for the elaborate feasts he would prepare and his kirtans.
ISKCON New York requests all devotees to pray to Sri Sri Radha Govindadeva and Lord Nrsimhadeva to protect Srikanta prabhu on his voyage back to godhead.
