Right from the very conception of Saranagati Village he was an active participant. Many meetings and much discussion took place leading up to the purchase of the Saranagati land. The key and critical question at the time was "is there enough water to support a community of sixty families - water for homes and gardens, water for field crops, especially 30 to40 acres of grain production, water for pastures and hay production for a minimum of 40 cows?
We were young and inexperienced and this question challenged usespecially because we knew that the land was in a very dry ecosystem. It was Dadhi Harta who did the research.
In doing so, he spent many hours in the library, consulted with professional agrologists and engineers in the ministry of agriculture and in the end brought forward to the table the data we needed to make a decision - "to buy or not to buy". Knowing that the land purchase included the water licences on the main creeks feeding into the valley, especially the big creek to the north, we could make the necessary calculations that gave us the confidence that making the purchase was indeed, the "right" decision.
Of course, we could understand that much would have to be done in order to utilize these water resources and build a self sufficient community that would be pleasing to Srila Prabhupada.
Many of those devotees who were originally involved in making that decision to purchase this Saranagati land are no longer around, but Dadhi Harta's commitment and service to Saranagati has never wavered.
He has always been here since the beginning, humbly performing the many tasks required to nurture a fledging community, whether caring for cows or filling potholes in the road.
We fondly remember his strong support and participation in the Fall Harvest Festivals and the Spring Planting Festivals over the past 10 years. Sadly we will have no more of his cheery madcap association, which was always so humourous and endearing.
I did not know Dadhi previous to moving to Saranagati, and so do not have the long history many in this area had with him through the Vancouver Temple sangha. I got to know Dadhi just after his stroke, and was always struck by the humour, humility and grace with which he dealt with his newly limited condition. He regarded his lot in life as Krsna's grace, and was grateful for even the smallest of kindnesses shown to him.
Dadhi could go on and on about an issue at hand, but it was impossible to be curt or abrupt with him, because of his undeniably earnest and modest nature.
He was militant in his campaign to ensure the water was running for his beloved cows, and we knew whenever there was an interruption in the flow, because we'd hear his little grey pick-up roaring down the road into the South end to see how the problem could be remedied.
He was always effusive in his appreciation for the efforts of the devotees, and especially for the prasadam at the festivals, which he loved so much. I don't know if I have ever seen a devotee who loved maha prasada more than Dadhiharta.
His creamed fruit surprise was the favorite of many of us at the Parrot Festival, and I told him so. I will always remember Dadhi scribbling notes in his Daytimer - you could always count on him to know what had been said and by whom about such-and-such topic, and when the upcoming meeting was. He was a genuine character, and one of a kind. But beyond all of his endearing traits, I know we all celebrate the fact that Dadhiharta Prabhu was such a sold-out devotee of the Lord.
He was one of those rare souls who doesn't care for the esteem of others, but is only happy to be engaged in devotional service to Sri-Sri Radha and Krsna, and is grateful to those who engage him. He was never a one for party spirit, but always accepted all devotees with love and respect, and I honestly don't remember ever hearing him give in to finding fault with others.
This is the kind of devotee we want to associate with. I only wish now that I had taken more time to get to know him better. And this is of course why we lament the loss of a godbrother: Thanks, Dadhi, for everything you gave us, how you contributed to the fabric of Saranagati, and made all of our lives better by your association. You will be dearly missed. Your friends and servants Trilokanatha and Mahojjvala Tom and Sandy Coles It is with great sadness that we learned of the passing of our old friend Dadhiharta Das.
Our time in Saranagti, brief though it was, was made all the more pleasant by his association and the many wonderful times and conversations shared over dinner. He nudges it several times and it finally awakes. Ash sends out Leavanny and tells Iris who looks perplexed that they should battle because they are both Bug types and Leavanny has already evolved which would help Caterpie too. But when Ash is ready to battle Caterpie, Caterpie falls back asleep.
He decides to wake up Caterpie by telling Leavanny to use Energy Ball. But this scares Caterpie a lot and it runs away. Iris notes that the only thing it's fast at is running away. Ash and the gang look for Caterpie and sees Caterpie sleeping in the tree. Caterpie sees them and tries to run away but falls off a branch, Ash catches it and smacks his nose on the tree trunk in the process.
Ash notes that it was ignoring Caterpie's feelings and says it wants to help it evolve and Caterpie agrees. Iris says that there are leaves around the area which Bug types love. Ash and the gang find these leaves and Caterpie really likes them and is eating them quickly. Caterpie falls asleep after a while and Ash says it has to eat a lot otherwise it won't evolve. Ash is frustrated that Caterpie went back to sleep again and they all decide to take a nap. Caterpie wakes up and wakes Ash in the process.
Ash decides it would be good for Caterpie to climb some trees. Caterpie then uses String Shot to glide across the forest. Iris and Ash follow suit using the tree vines. Cilan said that Ash should be careful but then Ash falls on the floor but is saved by Caterpie's String Shot. They all have some lunch and they eat some Berries found in the forest.

Leavanny decides to make Caterpie a leaf hood. Then there are some stills of the next day including some walking, vine gliding and running. The next night, Team Rocket appear and comment that Caterpie is taking a long time to evolve. But they say that their main goal is to capture Pikachu. The next afternoon, the gang finds a forest with a variety of Berries. Caterpie goes to eat some Oran Berries. Behind Ash there stood an Ursaring and Ash and gang run away from it.
Caterpie was eating a berry and Ursaring tried to attack Caterpie but was saved by Ash. They all hide in the bushes but Caterpie suddenly sneezes and shoots some string on Ursaring's back and Ursaring spotted them. But to stop Ursaring, Caterpie uses its smell to warn it away but it got more angry than before.
Ursaring chases them into a dead end. Caterpie fights back and uses Tackle and then String Shot to stop Ursaring.
Ursaring breaks free, but Pikachu uses Thunderbolt and Ursaring runs away. Iris and Cilan come to Ash's rescue and Ash thanks Caterpie.
Suddenly, Caterpie evolves into Metapod and falls asleep. That night, Iris tells Ash that another entire flock of Butterfree are coming through this island. Cilan tells Ash that if evolves it can go with them. Ash wasn't sure because of how often Metapod sleeps but it wakes up and Ash tells it that they are going to work hard tomorrow. The next morning, the gang decide to run and Metapod looks very determined. But above them there was a flock of Butterfree and Ash notices that they are a week early with Iris commenting that they must have got a strong tailwind.
Cilan says that they will leave the next day when the sun comes up and Ash notices that Metapod is sleeping during this conversation. Ash tells Metapod that it needs special traning so Ash decides to do hurdles, the horseback and push-ups, more running. This wasn't enough and after all this training Metapod hasn't evolved. Suddenly, Team Rocket grab both Pikachu and Metapod and recite their motto.
