The staff of Back to Godhead would like to express our heartfelt condolences to the family and friends of Jagajivana Dasa, who passed away on May 2 in Clearwater, Florida. He was a Back to Godhead associate editor.

Jagajivana was initiated by Srila Prabhupada in the early 1970s. His devotional service over the years included editorial work for BTG, the Bhaktivedanta Book Trust, and the Bhaktivedanta Archives. His main contribution to BTG for the last decade was to select and edit the conversations for "Srila Prabhupada Speaks Out." Jagajivana was a dedicated disciple of Srila Prabhupada and always spoke of him with great love.

We at BTG greatly valued Jagajivana's service to the magazine, and we are confident that Lord Krsna has given him the opportunity to continue his devotional service.
