Br Prabuddhamrita Chaitanya, was a remarkable person who made a significant contribution to our Ashram spiritual community. He was an individual who wore many hats, and his multifaceted personality was a source of inspiration for many.
Br Prabuddhamrita was an ardent lover of arts, music, and literature. He was a gifted singer and had a vast collection of traditional Nampootiri jokes. He had a quick wit and always had a smile on his face, which would light up any room he entered. He was a great cook and had a deep passion for the culinary arts. He would often prepare meals for those around him, and his food was a testament to his love and care for others.
Br Prabuddhamrita was a skilled astrologer and had a remarkable ability to predict events with great precision. He was well-versed in various methods of pujas and homas and was a respected priest by the devotees of Amma. His knowledge of Vedic traditions was vast, and he was always willing to share his insights with others.
Br Prabuddhamrita, disciple of Amma, was intitated Brahmacharya Deeksha 3 years ago. As the main priest, he played a crucial role in the installation of many Brahmasthanam temples. His unwavering devotion to Amma was evident in everything he did, and he inspired many with his selfless service and dedication.
Today, he is no more with us in physical form. The last time I met him was yesterday during evening tea time, where we shared jokes and laughed out loud. Br Prabuddhamrita Chaitanya, who left us so suddenly, will be deeply missed. However, his legacy will live on through the lives he touched and the work he accomplished. May he find eternal peace and rest in the loving embrace of Amma’s lotus feet.
