Baa returns to Spiritual World, 17th February, 2012.

Dearest God family and well wishers,

Please accept my humble obeisances. All Glories to Srila Gurudeva! All Glories to Srila Prabhupada!

I have just been informed by Srila Guru Maharaja that at 19:15 US time (9:15 AEST), February 17th 2012, Friday our beloved Baa left her body and this material world to enter into the eternal pastimes of the Lord and His associates. She was very peaceful, calm and absorbed in the maha-mantra being chanted by Srila Prabhupada. Although we are very saddened by loss and grieve in seperation of her motherly love and affection we must take heart of this joyous occasion as Baa has certainly achieved the perfection of life - Krsna Prema.

I kindly ask the devotees to please continue your intensified prayers in rememberance of Baa and that we may all one day re-unite in the loving service of Our Beloved Lordships Sri Sri Radha Shyamasundara. We are unlimitedely in debt and appreciation that by the grace of Baa we have the fortune of serving Srila Guru Maharaja. Let us please absorb ourselves in kirtan with this mood.

Your servant,

Rajvidya das

Ah! Vaishnava soul!
The charms of Brindaban thy heart regale,
Unknown the wheel of time doth roll!!
He reasons ill who tells that Vaishnavas die
When thou art living still in sound.
The Vaishnavas die to live and living try
To spread a holy life around!
Now let the candid man that seeks to live
Follow thy way on shores of time,
Then posterity sure to him will give
Like one song in simple rhyme!
