Remembering Krsna Kanta Devi Dasi
By Jaya Govinda dasa (ISKCON Vancouver)

Krsna Kanta devi dasi, a disciple of Srila Prabhupada, was very well known and loved by the devotees in Canada.

On Friday morning, the 20th of July, Krsna Kanta devi dasi, a well-known disciple of Srila Prabhupada who lived in Vancouver, Canada, unexpectedly passed away.

Although the actual cause of death is not certain it appears to be related to an epileptic seizure.

She is survived by her husband Mahidhara Dasa and three children; Raman Reti aged 20, Gaura Sundar aged 18 and Rasamanjari aged 13.

Krsna Kanta met Srila Prabhupada and became his duly initiated disciple in 1974 at Geneva Switzerland, the place of her birth in 1956.

Krsna Kanta Prabhu was a dedicated mother, a dedicated businesswoman, a dedicated wife and above all a dedicated disciple of Srila Prabhupada.

She was involved closely with the Vancouver temple and maintained a visible daily presence. She maintained a strong spiritual sadhana and oversaw the morning Srimad-Bhagavatam class schedule. She loved to hear classes and was most conscious of recording them and providing the opportunity for others to hear these topics related to Krishna consciousness. One of her regular weekly activities was the Nama Hatta preaching program that she developed and maintained for years.

She had a very compassionate nature and was always spearheading relief efforts for the destitute victims of disasters such as flooding, earthquakes etc: She loved to participate in kirtan and was adept at leading them as well. She was knowledgeable in the philosophy of Krishna consciousness and a very competent class giver.

She was a dedicated mother who directed her children towards a Gurukula education and whenever possible she would take them with her during her daily activities as well as on vacation trips to Rathayatras and other Krishna consciousness festivals and places.

She maintained her household affairs by assisting her husband with their art store business.

As a person she was always happy and enthusiastic about progressing the actual mission in life of developing Krishna Consciousness.

Whomever she met she would encourage them in their attempts at promoting their spiritual life and she was very adamant at defending Srila Prabhupada's ISKCON mission.

Her realm of friendships is very far reaching to persons in all walks of life and for those who had the good fortune of knowing her, she will be greatly missed.
