HG Chaitanya Dasi’s memorial in Vrindavan (Album of photos)
Mahadevi Dasi: Yesterday in Srila Prabhupada’s House here in Vrndavana, Caitanya Dasi’s Godsisters n brothers sat in a family circle to glorify n remember Prabhupada’s dear disciple. Caitanya dasi has served Srila Prabhupada faithfully in ISKCON since 1969.
The satsang was simply wonderful as we each spoke of Caitanya’s glories n achievements, sometimes interrupting each other informally, when we would get excited… thinking of another wonderful or dramatic event in Caitanya’s love for her Prabhupada, for her Jagannatha and for her children.
Our group of 15 Prabhupada disciples have all been around each other for decades and we honor the sincerity of our lives given to Prabhupada, despite our individual eccentricities.
We give each other family affection n admiration for serving Prabhupada n each other for almost 50 years! … as parts n parcels of our most magnanimous master, Srila Prabhupada. There wasn’t doubt with any of us that Caitanya Dasi sincerely gave her life to serving n depending on Srila Prabhupada.
There was information shared about her extensive preaching, even starting a Temple in Trinidad, her numerous dramas as an expert actress, her expertise in singing n playing musical instruments and raising her 4 children, basically as a struggling, single mother.
There was laughter over our various encounters with her and tears as we heard Gandhari Zeppetello ’s farewell letter to her mata… We also listened n watched her beautiful Vyasa puja offering with footage of Vrndavana called “At last, I am finally Home” which you can watch on YouTube.
Caitanya and I used to say to each other… “By him, ignorance is destroyed.” And remind each other, no matter what, Prabhupada n Krsna are ALWAYS there for us.
We all believe Caitanya Dasi is serving Srila Prabhupada n her Lords now and eternally in so many sublime ways.
Jai Sri Goura Bhakta Vrnda
Jai all our Lords.
All glories to you my dear friend and sister Caitanya Dasi prabhu!
