Sri Sri Harinama Kalpataru (Kindle Edition)
by SRIPAD AINDRA PRABHU (Author)
About the author
Śrīpad Aindra Prabhu was a Gauḍīya Vaiṣṇava saint who dedicated his life to chanting God’s Holy Names. Born in Virginia (U.S.) in 1953, he met the followers of the Hare Kṛṣṇa Movement in his early twenties. Deeply touched by the divine sound of the Hare Kṛṣṇa mahā-mantra, he was initiated into the movement by His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupāda in 1974. Eight years later, he settled in the holy town of Vṛndāvana (India), where he re-inaugurated the 24-hour kirtan that Śrīla Prabhupāda had originally established. There is great value in sitting in a sacred place and chanting the Holy Names of God for the benefit of all living entities, and Aindra Prabhu had the potency to do so.
Not only was Aindra Prabhu an outstanding spiritual musician; he was also a fired-up preacher. Whenever he was given a chance to speak, his words came from his heart and burned with the fire of love for Kṛṣṇa. In July 2010 Aindra Prabhu suddenly left this world, leaving behind thousands of devotees crying in separation. “He reasons ill who tells that Vaiṣṇava die, when thou are living still in sound! The Vaiṣṇava die to live, and living try to spread the Holy Name around!” As Śrīpad Aindra Prabhu was always eager to chant and to inspire others to chant, we hope to assist him in spreading throughout the world his vāṇī and enthusiasm for harināma-saṅkīrtana.
