Her Grace Krsnanandini Devi Dasi, a beloved and inspirational pioneer for Vaishnava families, passed away today (November 13th 2020) after a long struggle with cancer. She was in the company of her children and her husband Tariq Saleem Ziyad, at their home in North Carolina.
Krsnanandini Devi Dasi was a Srila Prabhupada disciple, Certified Family Life Educator, a member of the ISKCON Grihastha Vision Team, and the co-director of the Dasi-Ziyad Family Institute with her husband Tariq. Through this institute, the couple designed and implemented several curricula relating to marriage, family, and youth. They provided pre-marital counseling and worked with families, teaching many how to build healthy relationship skills based on a solid spiritual foundation.
In a June article for ISKCON News, Sri Radhika Devi Dasi wrote, “Krsnanandini Devi Dasi managed to be such an exemplary mother for her children while at the same time, also providing life-giving services within the community of ISKCON and beyond.”
