Let Us Help Gauranga Das Fight a Horrible Disease
Being sick is a serious ordeal these days. If it is a serious illness, it is double trouble. Willpower and wallet are put to test. Gauranga Das, a devotee from Odessa, found himself in such a difficult situation.
In March 2022, after an emergency operation for peritonitis, Gauranga Prabhu heard a terrible diagnosis – cancer.
There was a difficult operation, his intestine was taken out and a stomach was put in place, exhausting 5 cycles of chemotherapy followed. By the Lord’s mercy, Gauranga Dasa lived through chemo. But it almost took away the strength of the body required to fight further. There arose problems related to the kidneys, liver, skin. Unfortunately, these were not all the trials that befell the devotee. Because of intense stress, his wife fell ill and she had to be operated on.
At the end of September, Gauranga Dasa is to go through the 6th chemo, after which another difficult operation to restore the intestines will follow.
Thanks to constant serious spiritual practice, the support of devotees and family, Gauranga Dasa retained his inner strength and is determined to fight this disease.
But the physical body needs to be restored and be ready for a new struggle so that it is successful!
For that to be achieved, it is crucial to have good nutrition (up to specialized sipping), support for internal organs – the liver and the kidneys. The operation itself is a thing in itself. Such operations are not cheap. The family have almost no money left.
Damayuta Dasa, the leader of the Odesa Yatra says:
“Gauranga Dasa met devotees in the early 90s in Chisinau. His spiritual master is Partha Sarathi Dasa Goswami who initiated him in 1999.
In 2007, he married and lived in Chernomorsk, he was engaged in service in the Odesa community. He was a member of the community council, was the chair of the department of education. In 2011 he received a second initiation.
Together with his wife, they preached through clubs such as Goodness, Psychology 3000.
He traveled a lot, was engaged in service in the Vienna community, helped to arrange the first Ratha-Yatra.
All devotees note that he is warm-hearted and gentle. Of course, he has a great sense of humor and at the same time deep knowledge of philosophy. He is an excellent counsellor and always provides appropriate support and care.
When he was teaching, all his students spoke of him with great love and gratitude. Our yatra is still hoping that he could start teaching again.”
