Dear Maharajas and Prabhus,
Please accept my humble obeisances _/\ò_. All glories to Srila Prabhupada!
I just heard from Abhiram prabhu that Srimate Yamuna devi dasi, Srila Prabhupada's beloved daughter, has passed away from apparent heart attack in Melbourne Florida USA. He heard this directly from Dina Tarini dasi about two hours ago. (time of writing this is 7.45PM India time).
Briefly it seems she was experiencing some angina attack late last night USA east coast time (Dec. 19). The two of them had kirtan together and Yamuna went to bed around midnight.
Dina Tarini woke early in the morning and discovered Yamuna sitting in a chair with her hand in her bead bag but she had already left.
May Srila Prabhupada and her beloved Sri Sri Bana Bihari take her back to Their eternal abode. We have suffered a great great loss.
Your humble servant,
Hare Krishna! We lament the loss of one so dear to Srila Prabhupada.. but feel certain she is, as she has always been in his shelter..,, Back Home
