Searching for Information about Daksina dasi

Hare Krsna everyone! I was wondering if anyone out there might know what really happened to my old friend Daksina dasi? Her son was Govinda dasa and she was in the Los Angeles temple in the early 70's while I was, with my son Samba dasa. We lost touch over the years and when I came back to Krsna Consciousness in 1992 I was remiss in looking her up.

Through the grapevine, I heard that some unfortunate events took place and she sadly took her own life. I was shocked and so thoroughly disappointed in my dear friend having to go to such lengths to gain relief from her mental state in this ever suffering material world. I often think of her and say a prayer for her from time to time. I worry about her now, hoping she is not in a ghost body.

Does anyone out there know of any offering or puja that can be performed in her name for alleviation of such a deed? I worry about her and hope to help in some way. She was such a nice devotee and helped me in my time of need several times. If you do know of anything, please advise with an email to me at:

Jai Prabhus! I wish all my friends well and hope you are being as blessed as I in Krsna Consciousness. Just remember...

In this age of Kali; there is no other way, no other way than to chant the holy name of Hare Krsna, Hare Krsna, Krsna, Krsna, Hare Rama, Hare Rama, Rama, Rama. Ki Jai!
