Invitation to Memorial Dedication for Sankara devi dasi

by Chaitanya Mangala das

Posted July 12, 2005

This announcement is to all the assembled devotees, especially the New Vrindaban Brijabasis.

What: Memorial Dedication for Sankara devi dasi
When: Saturday July 16th, 2005.
Where: Along the path around the temple lake in New Vrindaban, WV.

My mother, Sankara devi dasi, left her body in New Vrindaban WV in 1985. This year marks the 20th anniversary of her passing. Her family will be dedicating a Nama Samadhi (granite memorial bench) in her honor. The bench will have some words of remembrance etched into the stone and be placed along the walking path around the Sri Sri Radha Vrindaban Chandra Temple lake. The bench will serve both as her memorial and as a place for people to relax and appreciate their surroundings as they follow the parikrama path through the holy dhama.

We would like to invite everyone to join us in our Smrti Sabha (remembrance gathering).

ALSO, we are requesting anyone with memories of Sankara dasi to contact us. We are collecting stories to share at the memorial service. Please write if you have anything to contribute. We would be grateful to hear from you. My email:

Thank you,

Seeking the essence,
Chaitanya Mangala dasa (aka Chaits)
