Twice last week, accompanied by various devotees, including Vrindavan Chandra das from London; Ugrasena das, Nitya Manjari dasi, and Kaviraj from Durban; and Visnupriya dasi from Dallas, I visited Rajani Priya dasi (Rose Forkash) at her home in Carpinteria, California. She is seven months away from her one hundredth birthday, but she is mentally and spiritually strong, and we all felt uplifted by her association. In addition to speaking with us about her life in Krishna consciousness, in appreciation of Srila Prabhupada, she also played Hare Krishna on the piano beautifully, and we all joined in chanting. One of her greatest pleasures in life is chanting and getting others to chant, which she has done with many, many people from all backgrounds and walks of life.
Yours in service,
