Hare Krishna Dear Devotees,

Please accept my blessings. All glories to Srila Prabhupad

I am really pleased and delighted to inform you that on Wednesday, at the
GBC meeting, Ekalavya Prabhu was given full and final approval to receive
sannyasa. He has been a sannyasa candidate for the past couple of years and
now has “zero waiting years” and can receive sannyasa diksa at any time this

The position of a sannyasi under the auspices of Srila Prabhupada, is to
renounce worldly activities, and to travel extensively and preach. By
accepting sannyasa, Ekalavya Prabhu promises to dedicate his body, mind and
words totally to the service of the Supreme Personality of Godhead.  In many
ways, he has been doing that already. Ekalavya Prabhu has spent countless
moons travelling to many countries across the globe, spreading the holy
names of the Lord. 

On behalf of myself and the Lok family, it gives me immense pleasure to
convey our heartfelt congratulations to Ekalavya Prabhu on his sannyasa
approval by the GBC. We will be deciding on the date of his sannyasa and
will keep you informed.

Now that he is a sannyasi, I will encourage all of you to invite Ekalavya
Prabhu into your homes, centres and temples to preach the holy names of the

It is my sincere prayer that Ekalavya Prabhu forever continues the legacy of
spreading the holy names of the Lord.

I hope this finds you all in good health and in high Krishna conscious

Your well wisher,
Lokanath Swami
