January 16. 2015 Disappearance.Srila B.B Harijan Swami

We are overwhelmed dropped in an ocean of lamentation and separation because on January the 16th 1990, at 07:30 PM, His Divine Grace Bhakti Bhimala Harijan Maharaj Swami disappeared from this world to join with his Eternal Masters in the Spiritual Kingdom.

Maharaj left this world in the association of Camur Kumar, Prabhu Askalita, Prabhu Radha Kripa and some of his family members. Maharaj had been suffering from a kidney condition for several months. In spite of the many efforts that included the procedures of dialysis by an artificial kidney at the hospital, Krsna called him back to Him, leaving us orphans of his affectionate care, of his illuminated teachings, of his irreproachable example as a sannyasi, of his extraordinary devotion at the lotus feet of his Divine Masters and of his dedication to help his disciples to the liberate from the claws of illusion, without any consideration for himself, even to the extent of preaching when his health was so precarious.

Srila Harijan Maharaj is the jewel of devotion among Colombia's devotees and his burning desire is that everyone becomes a devotee of Lord Caitanya; his sweet and sincere nature won the love of his preceptors as well as his godbrothers. I do not know why Krsna called His dear servant so soon to His eternal kingdom, but I do have a firm faith in Srila Harijan Maharaja's wish for us to continue in this struggle, following his example to the last breath of air, as was done by our Eternal Masters Srila Prabhupada and Srila Sridhara Maharaj.

I regret very much being such a useless servant, and I am well aware that Srila Harijan Maharaj can not be simply substituted. But in his name, I beg you all to make Harijan Maharj's devotion alive in your own lives and that way we can continue with his loving mission.

On the 17th, the transportation of Harijan Maharaj's transcendental body takes place, it is taken from Sri Sri Gaur Nitai's Original Temple where he left this earth, to the Farm of Gauranga Radha Vrajesvara, his worshipped Deities. Here, close to Bogota, the devotees are going to make his Maha-Samadhi Mandir, offering the honors deserved by the first Colombian Vaishnava Acarya, the greatest disciple of Srila Prabhupada, The impeller of the Transcendental Literature and of the preaching in general throughout Colombia and South America.

I only have left to quote here, at the end, two teachings of our predecessor masters: "The Spiritual master does not die; he keeps on living in his instructions and his sincere followers will live with him" " Some think wrongly that Vaishnavas also die, but they keep living in the sound. Vaishnavas die to live eternally and living this way, they try to spread the Holy Name every where"

Srila Harijan Maharaj is one of these Vaishnavas and we will never stop missing him.




Estamos tirados en un oceano de lamentacion y separacion porque el dia 16 de Enero de 1990, a las 7:30 pm, desaparecio de este mundo Su Divina Gracia Bhakti Bhimala Harijan Swami, para volver con sus maestros eternos en el Reino Espiritual. 
Maharaja dejo este mundo en asociación de Camur Kumar, Prabhu Askalita y Prabhu Radha Kripa, y unos familiares. Maharaja habia estado sufriendo por varios meses de una deficiencia del sistema renal, a pesar de muchos esfuerzos que incluían la dialisis por un riñón artificial en el hospital, Krsna lo llamo de vuelta donde El, dejandonos huerfanos de su cariño, de sus iluminaciones, de su impecable ejemplo de sannyasi, de su devoción extraordinaria a los pies de loto de sus maestros, y de su dedicacion para ayudar a sus discipulos, como tambien a los demas devotos, a liberarse de las garras de la ilusion, sin considerar inconveniensia ninguna para si mismo, incluyendo el predicar en un momento cuando su salud estaba muy precaria. 
Srila Hariyan Maharaj es la joya de la devocion de los devotos de Colombia y su ardiente deseo es que todos se hagan devotos puros del Señor Caitanya; Su naturaleza dulce y sincera se gano el cariño tanto de sus maestros somo el de sus hermanos espirituales. Yo no se por que Krsna llamo a Su querido sirviente tan temprano hacia Su reino eterno, pero yo si tengo fe firme en que el deseo de Srila Harijan Maharaj es que todos continuemos en esta lucha, siguiendo su ejemplo hasta el ultimo respiro, como tambien lo hicieron nuestros Maestros Eternos, Srila Prabhupada y Srila Sridhar Maharaj. 
Lamento mucho que yo sea un servidor tan inutil, y soy bien conciente de que Srila Harijan Maharaj no puede ser substituido facilmente. Pero en el nombre de El, yo les ruego a todos ustedes de hacer vivir la devocion de Harijan Maharaj en us propias vidas, y asi continuaremos su mision amorosa. 
En el dia 17, ocurre el traslado del cuerpo tracendental de Harijan Maharaj, del Templo Original de Sri Sri Goura Nitay, donde el abandono esta tierra, siendo trasladado a la finca de Gouranga Radha Vrajesvara, sus deidades adoradas, en la cercania de Bogota, donde los devotos van a erigir su Maha-Samadhi Mandir, ofreciendole los honores que se merece el primer Acarya Vaisnava de Colombia, el mas grande discipulo de Srila Prabhupada, impulsor de la Literatura Tracendental y de la predica en general en Colombia y en todo Sur America. 
Solo me queda por citar aqui, al final, dos enseñanzas de nuestros Maestros anteriores: "El Maestro Espiritual no muere; el sigue viviendo en sus instrucciones, y sus sinceros seguidores viviran con el". "Algunos piensan equivocadamente que los vaisnavas tambien mueren, pero ellos siguen viviendo en el sonido. Los vaisnavas mueren para vivir eternamente, y viviendo de esta manera, tratan de esparcir el Santo nombre por doquier". 
Srila Harijan Maharaja es uno de estos Vaisnavas y nunca va a dejar de hacernos mucha falta.
