Recommended Posts


Dear Maharajas, Prabhus and Prabhvis,

Please accept my respectful obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada.

Many of you know our dear godsister Kaumadaki devi dasi through her years of

devoted service at the BBT or Legal Department in Los Angeles. She was

diagnosed over 7 years ago with stage 4 ovarian cancer.

Kdd is now in her final days in a hospice facility in Burnaby, BC, just 1.5

miles from the temple. She is being lovingly cared for by our godsister

Kriyashakti devi dasi. Please read the latest update from Kriya below.

Thank you for your time.

with gratitude,

Nirakula dasi

Dear Friends

My respects and regards to all. Jai Srila Prabhupada.

Kaumadaki dasi has made a turn in the road on this journey. This change has

been happening gradually over the past week. She now has random moments of

wakefulness in a dreamlike/ coma state. This is all happening on a cellular

level as her body is beginning to shut down. The short poem that she wrote,

responding to Srila Bhaktivinode Thakur was a superhuman effort of

determination and will on her part. Her eyesight was failing and her hand

could barely hold the pen. If I surprise her with an unexpected "Hare Krsna!

Radhe Radhe !" when I enter the room ...her eyelids flutter and she responds

like a little parrot....sometimes. Each day is different... but Mother Earth

will soon feel the burden of another wonderful devotee who has left us.

Srila Prabhupada is chanting bhajan 24/7 as per her request....as always. I

have put a small earphone in one ear to make it the most prominent sound in

her consciousness. Everyday, since I have been here, I protect the room with

Nrsingha oil from Mayapur Dham. The nurses all comment "how nice it smells

in here." Several times during the day, I shower mist her with the sacred

waters of Radha Kunda.

If there was ever a time for us to collectively petition and pray to our

Srila Prahupada to please take her hand and guide her ....it is now.

Please pass this request along.

Begging to remain in service,

Kriyashakti dd

I know Kaumadaki from New Dwaraka when she was Rameswara's secretary. She is a Prabhupada disciple who has managed to stay in ISKCON all these years - she is indeed a loyal devotee of the Lord. I will pray for her.

world, carried by the transcendental sound vibration








In loving service

I beg to remain...

My Prayers and respects go out to Kaumadaki and Murli...


I used to stay at their house often as a guest when I would visit LA over the years, Murli is one of my very old friends and Guru Bhais from the old days in LA...


Kaumadaki of course was one of the most sweet, sincere and caring souls that ever walked this planet, I stayed with them a while while she was going through chemo some years back and you would not think she was going through such a thing with the way she acted, always maintaining a positive demeanor and being her usual sweet self.


I hate to bring up a negative, but I want to set the record straight, Kaumadaki was certainly always devoted to Srila Prabupada but did not stay in Iskcon all these years as cbrahma says.


She will be missed by many, and we are all at a loss!

Transition comes

And life moves on –



A sunset here,

And there, the dawn.
