With sadness we inform the members of ISKCON about the passing away of His Holiness Tatpar Swami, a disciple of Srila Prabhupada. He was one among the first Bengali devotees to take initiation from Srila Prabhupada. Tatpar Maharaja joined ISKCON in 1970 and was first initiated in 1972. He accepted second initiation in 1973. Maharaja lived for many years in Mayapur, India where he preached the message of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu.
