The famous door to Haradhan Chakraborty’s room at the Dakshineswar Kali temple is closed now. When Haradhanji was alive, it was always full of devotees who brought their troubles & burdens. Some came for an affectionate hug, blessings or just for a quick chat and a tiny clay cup of milk tea.
Haradhanji was always there for everybody who came to him. He refused none. For seventeen years, he travelled from Kolkata to Laguna Beach to perform the annual Kali Puja for us. He gave us love, affection and awakened our Sri Ma Dakshineswari Kali for us.
Moreover, he demonstrated how a mere mortal can have a truly intimate relationship with the Divine Goddess Kali. None of us who witnessed his pujas will ever forget the experience. Haradhanji is with Ma & lives on in our hearts.
