Tamala Krishna: Today, we received word that Jayananda Prabhu had given up his body. When Prabhupada was informed he said, "Yes, sooner or later we must all go." Afterwards, tears came to His Divine Grace's eyes. "He was one of my very best disciples. He was the first to give me five thousand dollars, which was used for printing Teachings of Lord Caitanya. He used to drive me in the car, and while driving he would be chanting."
I asked Prabhupada about Jayananda's destination. "He is not lost. He will be promoted. If he still has some desire for sense gratification, then he will be promoted to the higher planets where he will live for ten thousand years with full enjoyment. By then, he may have perfected his devotional service and he will be transferred back to Godhead. Or, if he has not yet perfected his devotional service, he will be reborn in a very high, aristocratic, pious family. But if he was thinking of Krishna, then he can have gone directly to Krishna-loka."
