The Rao family in Illiois, USA deeply regrets to
inform you that Dr. Hanumanth S. Rao; more recently
known as "Swami Brahmananda Bharathi" left his body on
the 23rd hour and 40th minute of the 20th of March
Although much of that day, he was in a stuporous state
of being, his last moment was highlighted with an
amazing re-gaining of consciousness only to utter the
words "RAM, RAM" prior to his last breath.
His immediate family was loving him and was caring for
him constantly at his side, in adition to catering to
his every last need since his arrival back to the USA.
His presence, love, and wisdom will forever be missed
by us all.
GOD bless us all,
The Rao family.
