Yamuna Memorial Tributes: Devarsi Dasa


Devarsi dasa (Dr. David Eldredge), speaks of the mutual healing, physical and spiritual, he shared with Yamuna devi dasi.

Yamuna Devi Dasi was one of the first Western disciples of Srila Prabhupada. In the earliest days of ISKCON, she helped establish Hare Krishna temples in San Francisco, London, Delhi, and Vrindavan, India. She was also lead vocalist on on the popular Hare Krishna Mantra record and Radha-Krishna Temple album, helping popularize the chanting of Hare Krishna all over the world. She was the award-winning author of Lord Krishna's Cuisine, as well as other ground-breaking gourmet vegetarian cookbooks. She passed away in Florida, USA, in December 2011.
