This morning at 3:30 am, on the auspicious occasion of appearance day of Srila Bhakti Vinod Thakur, HG Rama Devi Mataji , a disciple of Srila Prabhupada left her body in Mayapur Dham. She is a dear servant of Sri Sri Radha Madhava. She has served as seamstress in the deity department. Mataji, being a qualified midwife, has rendered wonderful service to the community. She has been undergoing health crisis for past year and she breathed her last today in the Brahma muhurta period. She was peaceful, Srila Prabhupada was playing and Giriraja was next to her, with devotees doing kirtan. Her final rites will be performed today.
Ramadevi mataji was an inspiration to many, many young girls here in Mayapur, offering them expert guidance in the field of Deity dressmaking and altar decorations. She will be surely be missed…
As HH Jayapataka Swami mentioned today in the class, there will be a Smriti Sabha to glorify Ramadevi mataji.
All glories to HG Rama Devi mataji!
