Dear Devotees,
Please accept my blessings. Jaya Srila Prabhupada.

I am sorry to inform you that a very dear disciple of mine, Bharata Dasa from Chicago, has left his body. Bharata Dasa often helped me in various ways with great sincerity and devotion.

On the Passing of Nanda Devi Dasi

On September 21, 2012, our dear godsister, Nanda devi dasi, left her body after a long struggle with multiple sclerosis. Below is Acharyadeva's letter sent to Nanda's beloved son, Visvambhara. Additional letters are posted below in her honor.

Dear Visvambhara Prabhu,
Please accept my blessings. Jaya Srila Prabhupada.

Your mother was a true Vaishnavi saint and her future is extremely auspicious. During many years of extraordinary physical challenges, she remained fixed in pure Krishna consciousness with profound faith in guru and Krishna. For me she has always been a model of Krishna consciousness and I often realized, and told her, that she was teaching me by her incomparable example of Krishna consciousness.

Srila Acharyadeva has finished a new academic translation of the Bhagavad-gita. The book will include an introduction, footnotes and a description/summary of each chapter. The proposed title is Bhagavad-gita- An Insider's Literal Edition and will be available in e-book format by next spring. More details to follow.
