Murli Mohan prabhu Portrait

Murlimohan prabhu, 33 years old was a professional fashion designer but always found time for deities. He was disciple of His Holiness Gopal Krishna Goswami. He has been helping in designing deity dresses of Chowpatty and Juhu deities. He personally had large size Radha Krishna deities at home. Devotees would often visit his house for taking wonderful darshan of his deities especially on Janmastami. His brother Gagan, 27 years, also a devotee departed. Its sad that their devotee parents in Mumbai have lost both their children in prime youth.
All Great Departed Soul had intense desire to serve Supreme LORD, through their talents of Jewellery , Deity Dress ....So Lord Krsna called them, Lifted them immediately, embraced them with PURE LOVE of VAIKUNTHA & took them BACK to GODHEAD. My million obesiances at their Lotus Feet. All Glories to Such Vaishnavas.
