With immense sorrow and deep regret, we beg to report that Her Grace Yamuna devi dasi, one of the first disciples of His Divine Grace AC Bhaktivedanta Swami Srila Prabhupada, departed on the morning of the auspicious day of Saphala Ekadasi December 20, 2011. She is well-known for her glorious contributions to the Iskcon society and the world at large, chief one’s of those being: offering of the prayers of Govindam Adipurusham prayers that we hear and chant daily, award winning cookbooks that serve as guides to millions of devotees, greatly inspiring and encouraging the younger generation of ISKCON devotees in their Krishna Consciousness, etc.
She spent her final days in her Melborne Beach Florida ashram-kutir. As devotees recall, Srila Prabhupada said that she cooked just like Radharani.
We offer our sincere prayers for her.
Yamuna Mataji Passed Away, 20 Dec 2011, Saphala Ekadasi
