Sruti Dharma Das Begins His Fight Against CancerSruti Dharma Das, Temple president at Bhaktivedanta Manor, has been diagnosed with a form of brain cancer. The news was unexpected as there had been no previous indications. Both his family and the temple community are adjusting to the news. Sruti Dharma had been facing various health complaints and his medical advisor spontaneously decided to run further tests, beyond what was required. The results of those tests showed several lesions on his brain. He was then admitted to Charing Cross Hospital so that samples for a biopsy could be taken. The test results confirmed it is cancer.

Over the next weeks and months, Sruti Dharma will undergo both radiotherapy and chemotherapy supported by a host of holistic treatments. He has a superb team of health care professionals who are evaluating further treatments available outside of the UK. During this time of treatment he requires to rest and recuperate. He is at home with family and still very much keeping up with temple matters and the construction plans for the Shree Krishna Haveli community facility. The family is grateful for the unprecedented support from the community, and they remain optimistic. We ask everyone to respect the family’s privacy at this time.

Meeting with the temple leaders he emphasized the need for everything to go on as usual in the service of Lord Krishna, ‘We need to get the Haveli built and have many more years of service together. This is my test sent by God and I am determined to get a good grade. If you want to pray, pray that I may have the strength to serve you all in a way that pleases Lord Krishna’.
