Actually, they shared a wonderful kirtan with "Khar" & Radha then retired. Between 9 & 10 pm, Yamuna complained of chest pains and pressure to the head.
Dina asked what she wanted to do and Yamuna preferred to sit and chant. She took one over-the-counter head ache relief. At 12:30 am, Dina checked and she was sleeping with her oxygen machine. At 6:30, she checked again but
this time, she had removed the machine,was lying on the bed, looking peaceful with her hand in her bead bag.
I spent last Wed with them. I had a sense that we might not meet again in this life time....although we spoke about me coming back and spending some time together....
Yamuna Mataji Ki Jaya.
I worship Govinda, the primeval Lord, who is adept in playing on His flute, with blooming eyes like lotus petals with head decked with peacock's feather, with the figure of beauty tinged with the hue of blue clouds, and His unique loveliness charming millions of Cupids.
All Glories to to Srila Prabhupada! I was saddened by the news of Yamuna Mataji's passing away. Though her physical presence is no longer there, she will continue to inspire through her great Vaishnav qualities, her singing, her devotion. An inspiration to the end, we all hope to leave our physical bodies thinking and chanting of the Lord.

All glories to Yamuna Mataji. When I came into Krishna Consciousness simply by reading about early devotees like Mukunda das Prabhu, Malati Mataji, Yamuna Mataji propelled me to go deeper and deeper into the philosophy. Srila Prabhupada and all his early days devotees from Bowery and Matchless Gift dare exalted and very special. They can motivate and bring obstinate Jivas like me into Krsna consciousness for many many more years to come. Just reading their biographies is an inspiration in itself. I hope Iskcon comes out with a detailed biography of all Srila Prabhupada initiates and their initiated devotees. That will serve as a light in the dark tunnel a propeller that will help new entrants to delve deep into the philosophy. May Yamuna mataji's soul find peace and happiness by reuniting with Srila Prabhupada in goloka Vrindavan. Haribol
A really sad news for the Vaishnavas :(... But how and where Krishna wants services of His devotees is known to Him and His confidential servants only.
The Vaishnavas die to live and living try to spread a holy life around!. Everyone of us will always remember her services to Srila Prabhupada her dearmost spiritual master.
AnantKoti Dandvats to such great souls.
Dear Mother Yamuna,
Please accept my most humble obeisance. All glories to Srila Prabhupada. In the first months of my devotional life, i was most fortunate that you were in the UK and used to hold weekly ladies' sat-sangas every Wednesday. I found it very hard to feel I fitted in when i first joined, and frequently felt like leaving. But then Wednesday would come, and i'd sit with the other ladies in your association, and listen to you sing and talk about Srila Prabhupada. I didn't take a lot in, because i was so new and i found everything very overwhelming. But i remember looking at you, and thinking...she is the kind of person i would like to be...so don't leave, maybe by following this path, one day i too will be so very nice, so very loving. And i'd stay being inspired by your example. I am sure you are very happy and i pray that one day i may become so fortunate as to become as dear to the Lord's pure devotee as you are.
Your grateful servant,
Cintamani dhama dasi
We no longer receive your preaching in this life time but you are always with all devotees by your kirtan Govindam Adi Purusham. But we are happy that you have returned to your original place Lord Krishna's Adobe.
we all miss you..........
Yamuna Devi Dasi Mataji ki Jai!!!
