Srila Prabhupad was residing in the holy Dham of Sri Vrindavan, on a Monday November 14th, 1977, at 7:30 pm., [which fell upon the Caturthi of the Gaura (Sukla) Paksa, Mula nakshatra], when he gave up this mortal frame surrounded by loving disciples engaged in 'Harinam-sankirtan', the congregational chanting of the Holy Names
Translating Srimad Bhagavatam up until the very last breath, in a peaceful condition, and with the Holy Name on his tongue, Srila Prabhupada passed from this world in Sri Vrndavana Dhama to rejoin his worshipful Lords Sri Sri Nitai Gaura, Sri Sri Krsna Balarama, and Sri Sri Radhe Syamasundara in Their eternal abode.
Srila Bhaktivinode Thakur wrote a short stanza about the influence of a Vaishnava (a pure devotee) has in this world even after leaving:
"He reason ill who tells that Vaisnavas die
When thou art living still in sound!
The Vaisnavas die to live, and living try
To spread the Holy Name around !"
