It was also in 1966 that Vishnujana first came into contact with the Hare Krishnas, and by 1968 he had received initiation from Srila Prabhupada and was a full-time member of the movement. By July 20, 1970, Srila Prabhupada had awarded Vishnujana the order of sannyasa. Vishnujana was especially well known within ISKCON for his singing voice, and skill at playing instruments, such as the Mridangam (drum).

Musical recordings of Vishnujana would later be released in 1995 and are still popularly sold within ISKCON today. In 1976, during the Mayapur festival, Vishnujana disappeared. It is commonly believed that he committed suicide, throwing himself from a bridge at the confluence of several sacred rivers including the Ganges. During a walk some days earlier it is believed he had mis-heard a general statement by Prabhupada concerning the duty of a sannyasi which could have led to him taking his own life, but as Vishnujana is not recorded to have disclosed his thoughts to anyone before disappearing it is not known for certain if this was the case.
