The fol­low­ing is the of­fi­cial state­ment is­sued by his com­pa­ny, on be­half of his fam­i­ly…

The fam­i­ly of Sri Lokesh Ma­haraj and the Ex­ec­u­tive of Ra­dio and TV Jaagri­ti wish to ad­vise that Sri Lokesh Ma­haraj passed away yes­ter­day morn­ing at the Med­ical As­so­ciates Pri­vate Hos­pi­tal. Sri Lokesh Ji was the Chief Ex­ec­u­tive Of­fi­cer of Ra­dio and TV Jaagri­ti and the host of the pop­u­lar pro­gram «Straight Talk».

He died peace­ful­ly in the com­pa­ny of his loved ones whilst they were of­fer­ing prayers at his bed­side.

Over the past few days, His Ho­li­ness, the Dhar­mar­charya, Pan­dit Dr. Ram­per­sad Paras­ram, Pan­dit Rishi Ma­haraj (Sec­re­tary of the Sanatan Dhar­ma Ma­ha Sab­ha Pan­dits’ Parishad), Pan­dit Navin Oma­dath Ma­haraj, and oth­er Pan­dits of the Parishad vis­it­ed Sri Lokesh and of­fered prayers. Oth­er Pan­dits from across the coun­try al­so of­fered prayers on his be­half.

We are in­deed grate­ful to every­one for their prayers and sup­port in nu­mer­ous dif­fer­ent ways at this time.

Like his late grand­fa­ther, Sri Lokesh Ji was an ar­dent devo­tee of Lord Hanu­man. In his last mo­ments, he took so­lace in the fre­quent recita­tion of the Hanu­man Chal­isa. The rec­om­mend­ed ‘Gi­ta-path’ (vers­es of the Sri­mad Bhag­wad Gi­ta) was re­cit­ed to him. Oth­er pre­scribed end-of-life rit­u­als were per­formed for his ben­e­fit at this cru­cial junc­ture. We feel as­sured that his tran­si­tion was a smooth one from this mor­tal world.

The fam­i­ly and the Ex­ec­u­tive of the SDMS would like to sin­cere­ly thank all the doc­tors and nurs­ing staff who at­tend­ed to Sri Lokesh Ji.

Whilst we mourn his pass­ing, our Hin­du Scrip­tures man­date us to pre­pare for the An­tyeshti San­skaar where his body, as the last sac­ri­fi­cial of­fer­ing, will be of­fered to Bhag­wan Sri Vish­nu: Pu­rushovaa­ha yagyah tan­marnevaa vrd­hah.

The fi­nal rites will com­mence at 8:30 am on Sun­day 22nd May 2022 at the house of mourn­ing at Wilkin­son Street, El Do­ra­do. There will be live cov­er­age of this part of the cer­e­mo­ny on Ra­dio and TV Jaagri­ti.

Fol­low­ing this cer­e­mo­ny, the body will be tak­en to the Ca­roni Cre­ma­tion Site for 11:00 am. 

All fur­ther re­leas­es per­tain­ing to these fi­nal rites will be made through Ra­dio and TV Jaagri­ti.
