Today we honor the disappearance day of an extraordinary personality Jayananda das Thakur. Jayananda was a very dear friend of mine and the closest thing I ever had to a brother in this life. He took me under his wing and nourished my Krishna Consciousness. I am eternally indebted to him for instilling in me a service attitude, and love for Srila Prabhupada.
For anyone interested in more about Janananda, there are two nice books written in glorification of his life and activities, written by my friend Vishoka Prabhu. You can purchase them by clicking on the following images or visiting his site; http://vishoka.com/.
also you can click on the following link to view or save the original Nectar of Devotion 1970 Edition scanned copy that Jayananda helped Srila Prabhupada get printed with a contribution of $5,000.
