In Him,


Mahaprayan of Dr Naresh Prasad

Date: 04 May 2010 22:41:10 -0000 From: "Gurucharan Yadav" To: AM-GLOBAL Subject: Mahaprayan of Dr Naresh Prasad Baba
Namaskar, It is with deep sadness and respect that we share the news of the mahaprayan* of respected margii, Dr. Naresh Prasadji of Ranchi. Our esteemed elder brother underwent his mahaprayan on 4 May 2010 at 20:00 IST in his house in Adalhatu, Murabadi maidan, Ranchi, Jharkhanda, India. He was in his mid-sixties. Dr Prasad was a very senior margii initiated in the 1960's when he was a college student in Barh mokama near Patna, Bihar. He played an important role in constructing Ananda Shiila MU and Ranchi BQ. He also had a great role in pracar and ashram construction in many places. He bought land and constructed the ashram at Sasang village in Chandava block and at Henjala of Chaho block of Ranchi. Dr Prasad arranged the RM of his son and daughters. He was a very good example of "Karte karte maro aur marate marate karo". He was a silent worker who served without ever expecting name and fame. His eldest son is a sincere margii living in Delhi. Given his many contributions and devotional approach, it is totally disrespectful to say he died - when the higher, more respectful term of mahaprayan is available. Of course Parama Purusa is eternal and never dies so there is no question of using the mahaprayan term with Him. But in the case of Ananda Margiis like Dr Prasad, it is totally appropriate and deserved to use the term mahaprayan. With his mahaprayan, we pray that our dear brother Dr Prasad has found eternal peace on Baba's lap. Namaskar, Gurucharan * Mahaprayan: Many are aware that mahaprayan is the common term used in India and especially in Bengal to describe the death of an honoured or even ordinary person. In that way the newspapers of Bengal are regularly citing the mahaprayan of respected persons of society who died or passed away. Some may get confused and wrongly think that the word 'mahaprayan' is one extraordinarily devotional term to be used in association with Parama Purusa. But that is not at all the case. Rather to do so is only to undermine the eternal presence of Parama Purusa. That is why no devotees ever use the word 'mahaprayan' in reference to Lord Shiva or Lord Krsna. Because Lord Shiva and Lord Krsna exist eternally. Then there is no question of Their mahaprayan. And for those who need still more technical proof then all this can be clarified quite readily by referencing the dictionary. Specifically in the Samsad Bengali-English dictionary on page 742. Checking there it will be confirmed that the word 'mahaprayan' means death of a respected person.
