All glories to Srila Prabhupada.
Please accept my humble obeisances.
This is Lakshmi, daughter of Raktak Das. I would like to thank you for your very nice message to our family, especially our mother. We all appreciate your support.
I would like to ask you one question. Do you think that my father is in Goloka Dham with Lord Krishna?
HpS - Hare Krsna! I don't know, but I do know that if he even taking birth in Sydney, Australia, in ISKCON, Krsna is there with him.
Sriman Raktaka Swami was such a fun person, so personal, how could Krsna and His associates not want to be with him and include him in Their play?
Isn't that more important, to go where is proper for us to go, but to be such fun people that Krsna and all His associates always want to join us and play with us?
Considering everything, he may take birth in Gokula in this world, and go on with all his work. When Bhakti Svarupa Damodara left his body, he was my Sannyasa Guru, and very close friend, I was very, very strongly feeling that, "Yes, it is very painful feeling separation from him, but that is only temporary, and as long as we are dedicated to whatever we learned from him about serving Krsna and we carry on his work then there is practically no separation. We really feel our Guru, father, older Godbrother with us taking a very, very practical interest in how the work is going".
How old are your sister and Bhimasena?
I hope we can all receive further spiritual guidance from you. Many thanks. Hare Krishna.
