Dearest Mother Lila, Eternal Servant of Sri Sri Radha-Shyamasundar
Posted February 5, 2008
Hare Krishna, Mother Lila. Please accept my most humble obeisances at your lotus feet. All glories to His Divine Grace Srila Prabhupada.
Although I never met you personally, I read the loving words of your dear Mother Subhangi, and my heart was moved and touched to no end. You are obviously a very sweet devotee of Their Lorships Sri Sri Radha-Shyamasundar, Who were personally installed by Srila Prabhupada himself in the holy land of Sri Vrindavan Dhama, your worshipable residence and home. Therefore it goes without saying that you are an eternal resident of the holy dhama, and that you are very very dear to Srila Prabhupada and Sri Sri Radha-Shyamasundar. Please kindly accept my humble dandavats at your lotus feet. Your glories are unlimited and we all worship and honor you with all our hearts.
Please rest assured that Srila Prabhupada himself declares in The Nectar of Devotion:
"Out of many kinds of devotees of the Supreme Personality of Godhead, the one who is attracted to the original form of the Lord, Krishna in Vrindavana, is to be considered the foremost, first-class devotee. Such a devotee is never attracted by the opulence of Vaikuntha nor even of Dvaraka, the royal city where Krishna ruled. The conclusion is that the devotees who are attracted by the pastimes of the Lord in Gokula or Vrindavana, are the topmost devotees."
(Nectar of Devotion, Chapter 4)
Therefore you have undoubtedly entered the eternal pastimes in association with your dearmost beloved Lordships, Sri Sri Radha-Shyamasundar.
In addition, our hearts and love go out to all your family members and friends. May Lord Krishna and Srila Prabhupada please bless you all.
All glories to you, Mother Lila. Thank you for blessing this world and our lives with your holy presence. You'll always be remembered and honored with the deepest respect and love from all the devotees of Krishna worldwide.
