His Divine Grace Srila A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada

Gaura Purnima To Kartika 1977


From This To This in 7 Months Why?
He reasons ill who tells that Vaishnavas die
While thou art living still in sound.
The Vaishnavas die to live, and living try
To spread the Holy Name around


To whom it may concern:


As a disciple of Srila Prabhupada, I [Ambarisa dasa] have to take with gravity, the statements of my Guru Maharaj. As Srila Prabhupada has stated three times in one day that he has been poisoned by someone, I have to hear these words with the utmost seriousness. To dismiss these statements as trivial or lacking authenticity is extremely offensive and cruel.

As such, I am not satisfied with the results of any of the investigations or reports issued so far. I do not believe that Balavanta prabhu was given adequate facility to complete his investigation. He has stated as much himself. Although there are some members of our society who believe this subject is better forgotten, I do not believe it can or should be until a full and proper investigation has been carried out.

We may never know the entire truth behind Srila Prabhupada's final pastimes. However, as the events surrounding these pastimes effect profoundly the dynamics of Srila Prabhupada's legacy and enduring society, I support Naveen Krishna prabhu and the newly formed November 14th Commission, in their dedicated efforts to set the record straight.

My participation is purely for honesty, fairness and justice. My role is to try, in my humble way, to keep an investigation from becoming a trial.

The process needs to be a professional and systematic gathering of facts.

Out of our love for Srila Prabhupada, I feel we need to put to rest, as much as possible, the lingering questions which are residing in the minds of many of our Godbrothers and Godsisters. We also need to create an accurate historical record. To do less would be negligent and indifferent.

Your servant,
Ambarisa dasa

1. Arsenic Poisoning Linked to Diabetes
Srila Prabhupada's Dr. in London says He had diabetic condition.

A sample of hair from Srila Prabhupada was analyzed by Dr. Steve Morris, of the University of Missouri. He found that the hair contained 20 times the arsenic than levels found in a normal adult weighing 180 lbs. Srila Prabhupada weighed only 60 to 70 lbs. at the time of his departure. Mayapura well water was tested by Balavanta dasa and was found to not be the source of this arsenic.

Nov: ' 77.

Bhavananda: Prabhupada was complaining of mental distress this morning also.

Bhakticaru: Srila Prabhupada.
SP: Hmm?
Bhakticaru (Bengali): Ota ki byapaar hoyechelo? mental distress?
Trans: What is that problem? mental distress?
Kaviraja: (Hindi) Boliye, boliye.
Trans: Say, say.
SP: (Hindi): Wohi bat jo koi hamko poison kya.
Trans: That talk (that) someone has poisoned me.
Bhakticaru: (Hindi) O aacha, uno soch na ki koi......
Trans: O' okay, he thinks that someone....
Kaviraja (speaking over Bhakticaru): Dekhiye bat yehi hai ki kisi rakshas ne diya ho.
Trans: Look, this is the understanding; some demon has given (poison).
Bhakticaru: "Someone gave him poison here."

Kaviraja: ...Caru swami.. (Bhakticaru says "yes")... kisi rakshas ne diya ho. Yeh to ho sakta hai. Impossible nehi hain. Woh Sankaracarya the; unhe kisi ne poison diya. Cheh mahina tak woh bari taklif paye. Kanch to hota hai na ? botal ke kanch, yeh pees ke khane mein khila diya. To usko kya nitaja hua; bara mahina baad mai, leprosy ho gaya sab sharir ki undar. To karam to apna bhugte hai. Kintu jo medicine ham dai raka hai; jadi koi uska effect hoga poison to rahe nahin sakta, guarenteed bolta hai. Ki woh be effected hoga to rahin nahi sakta. Ki abhi to ham pakar nahin saktai usko unko diya hua hai. Abhi bhi pakarta hai jab kidney kharab ho gaya, kisi karanse ya bimari se ho, chai graha se ho, chai poison se.

Trans: ...Caru swami (Bhakticaru says, "yes")..some demon has given (poison). This can happen. It's not impossible. There's that Sankaracarya (person), someone gave him poison. For six months he suffered. There is glass you know? Bottle glass? It was ground and fed in food. What befell him; after twelve months; leprosy spread inside his body. Everyone suffers their karma. But the medicine I have given, if any (poisonous) effect occurs; it cannot stay. I give a guarantee, that even if there are effects they will not stay. Because right now, I cannot detect (poison) has been given to him. It is detected when the kidneys go bad, or by some symptom of disease, by (effects) of the eclypse, or by poison (?) .

Tamala Krsna: Prabhupada was thinking that someone had poisoned him?
Bhakticaru: YES!!!
Tamala Krsna: That was the mental distress?
Bhakticaru: YES!!!.
Kaviraja: Yeh bolte hai to isme kuch na kuch satya he. Isme koi sandeha nahin.
Trans: This is what (Srila Prabhupada) says, then there must be some truth in it. In this there is no doubt.
Tamala Krsna: What did Kaviraja just say?
Bhakticaru: He said that when Srila Prabhupada was saying that (he is poisoned) there must be something truth behind it.
Unidentified: Sssss!
(Everyone begins speaking together)

Kaviraja: Koi rakshas hai...daina wallah..Pan me ek cheez de doon. Kya batun...doodh me de doon. Khana ek pan me dwai de doon, subhe me jindagi be bhool sakhoge.
Trans: It's some rakshasa...the poisoner...will put something in paan. What to say...(or) something in milk. To eat, (he) will put a medicine in pan, by the morning (your) whole life can be forgotten.

Tamala Krsna: Srila Prabhupada, Sastriji says that there must be some truth to it if you say that. So who is it that has poisoned?
Srila Prabhupada does not answer.
