Yamuna Devi is one of our great saintly devotees, as an exemplary perfected disciple of Srila Prabhupada. She embodies all of the pure Vaisnava qualities that Srila Prabhupada wished to see manifest in his followers: her total devotion to guru and Krishna, her personal concern and love for all Krishna bhaktas, her deep taste for Krishna Nama and Krishna kirtan manifested in her selfless dedication to the Sankirtan Movement, as well as her joyous and affectionate demeanor and genuine loving nature that always left the most positive impressions on us all.
We will sorrowfully miss her inspiring association, and we will cherish her immense legacy of pure devotion which she humbly shared with all of us fortunate to have had such a glorious soul in our sangha.
Yamuna-devi was a beautiful person—a divine servant of Srila Prabhupada, his mission, and his Lords. She exemplified nama-ruci (taste for the holy name), jiva-daya (mercy for the living entities), and vaisnava-seva (service to the devotees). She was a mentor, guide, and friend to many.
