Humble request for assistance:
Sankirtana dasi's mobile home lost in fire

Dear Devotees,
Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada!

I'm writing on behalf of my dear godsister, M. Sankirtana devi dasi, a dedicated, 28-year disciple of Srila Prabhupada who just lost her (uninsured) mobile home last weekend in a fire here at New Talavan, MS. M. Sankirtana, as her name suggests, is known to many around the world as both an early pioneer of book distribution and as a beloved, longstanding gurukula teacher, a ready, willing and able soldier who always did the needful with unique good humor, cheerful enthusiasm, any nary a complaint for many a year. And like so many unsung heroes of Lord Caitanya's movement she has never asked for any rewards or accolades. She has lived very humbly for her entire career in ISKCON, raising three children on a meager sustenance, the last few years of which have been primarily on her own. Even now she refuses to come forth and ask for anyone's charity, but it's obvious that she needs our help ASAP. We have set up a fund to get her back on her feet and will very gratefully accept your mercy in any form or amount as the spirit moves you. Please make any inquiries to me at and/or send your donations directly to The Sandra Pennington Fund c/o Sterling Art, 501 S. Main St., Picayune, MS. 39466.

Thanking you in advance,
Your servant,
Candrabhanu dasa
