Urmila devi dasi: I first met Amekhala devi dasi about eight years ago, when she married Srutakirti, Prabhupada’s servant, and father of my son-in-law. Amekhala delighted in telling stories of how she cleaned Prabhupada’s rooms in London and she was dedicated to keeping or restoring Prabhupada’s standards, such as cooking with ghee rather than oil. Amekhala often traveled with Srutakirti as he told audiences throughout the world of Prabhupada’s lila. She even traveled for a year while in great pain and with much disability. Unknown to her during that time, cancer was ravaging her body.

When she learned in December that she had cancer, she took the advised chemotherapy, but one treatment left her at the brink of death. After some months of battling the disease with various alternative treatments, she left her body peacefully Friday morning, surrounded by many loving devotees in kirtana. We miss Amekhala and pray that she continues to serve Prabhupada with her fierce dedication and untiring energy.

In Memory of Smt. Amekhala devi

In 1975 Amekhala arrived in Berkeley from Europe with her former husband Manibandha das. So, I have known her and been in contact with her from then until her departure a few days ago. Amekhala always struck me as a very happy person, who it was easy to talk with and open one’s heart. She exemplified the quality of being kind and friendly to everyone.

I know she suffered many challenges in her life, but she never gave up her Krsna Consciousness for a moment, no matter how dire the circumstance.

I am sorry she has left us at a young age, but I am sure she has attained the eternal service of Sri Sri Radha Krsna under Srila Prabhupada lotus feet and is showering her blessing on us.
