ISKCON devotees of Queens: We regret to inform the Vaisnava community of the passing of a special devotee. Her Grace Vaisnavi Devi Dasi (Koosumwatie Seeredat) left her body on the night of Sunday, September 11, 2011, at the age of 67.
Mother Vaisnavi was an initiated disciple of HH Romapada Swami and a sincere servant of Srila Prabhupada. She was a pioneer of the Queens Yatra, starting the first home program with H.G. Sunanda Dasa in the area. Mother Vaisnavi was well-known and very well-loved in the New York Vaisnava community. She is survived by five daughters and one son.
The ISKCON devotees of Queens, New York express their deepest condolences to Mother Vaisnavi’s family. We pray that Sri Sri Hari Haladhari will give them strength in this difficult time, while carrying Mother Vaisnavi swiftly and safely on her final journey back home, back to Godhead.
The Sri Sri Krishna Balarama Mandir (Sri Sri Hari Haladhari temple) in Queens, New York will hold a program in honor of Mother Vaisnavi on Friday, September 16, at 7pm. His Holiness Romapada Swami will be present. All are welcome to attend.
