Lila Katha dasi: On Sunday, November 4, 2007 at 10:45 am, Lalitamrita devi dasi, left this world surrounded by her caregivers, her husband, Gandiva dasa, Kaulini dasi, Sangita devi dasi, Annapurna dasi, and other dear friends from around the U. S. who came from far and wide to care for her in her final days.
She left this world hearing the holy names of the Lord while other devotees came into her room one by one after hearing she was in her final moments and taking her final breaths. It was a very auspicious departure.
Mother Kaulini’s Giriraja Deity was placed on her head and Srila Prabhupada’s lotus feet were at her head as well. She had garlands placed on her from Radha Damodara, the presiding Deities in Gita Nagari farm. So many of her close friends were there day and night by her side to give her support and love and to help her remember Krsna by reading to her, chanting japa, bhajans, and telling her about what her journey back to home, back to Godhead will be like.
Her second initiated Guru, Satsvarupa Maharaja, spoke to her on the phone. Even though she could not verbalize her responses, he told her that her fears were only illusory and that she would either take birth in a family of advanced devotees or go directly to Krsnaloka.
His Holiness Danavir Goswami came to Gita Nagari after hearing about her illness. He came into her room and led a wonderful, soft kirtan. He gave classes to the community to give support at such an emotional and bitter-sweet time for all of them who knew and loved Lalitamrita so much.
We pray that Srila Prabhupada will forever keep this dear and sincere devotee at his lotus feet and give her protection from the pain and suffering of the material world.
On behalf of her closest friends from Gita Nagari,
The Vaisnavas CARE Board of Directors
