Summary

This memoir and biography unfolds the inspiring internal and external spiritual odyssey of Yamuna Devi's devotional life recalled in her memories, talks, journals, and writings as well as the remembrances of the author and other associates and friends. It is supplemented with relevant complimentary music and narrative featuring Yamuna.

In part two, Yamuna faces challenges and austerities while serving in Vrindavan. In 1974 she leaves the Krishna-Balarama Temple project and moves to Oregon with Dinatarini to begin a women's ashram. Her beloved deities are installed there. In the ensuing years, Yamuna and Dinatarini move extensively, each move bringing its own challenges and inspirations. In 1984 Yamuna's epic cookbook, Lord Krishna's Cuisine: The Art of Indian Vegetarian Cooking, is released to unprecedented praise. In 1998 Yamuna and Dinatarini, seeking a simpler life, move to Saranagati Village to live off the grid in a self-built Vastu-designed home. Here Yamuna lovingly shares kirtan, classes, deity seva, and devotional inspiration. Health issues later force Yamuna to move to Florida, where she continues to inspire others in bhakti until her passing.

Volume 2

A very inspiring story, beautifully read. Thank you Dina!
I had both volumes in Kindle form already, but the audio book is well worth having as well. Volume 1 is on my radar☺.

A truly life changing experience!

There are no words that can describe the glorious narration of the most exalted life of one of Srila Prabhupada’s earliest and most devoted disciples!!
The narrator brings to life Her Grace Yamuna Devi Dasi’s unalloyed life in this book. The original audios of Kirtans in Yamuna Devi’s own voice brings tears in the listeners eye of love and appreciation.
A must read/listen !
Hare Krishna.

No words can capture how special this book is.

Yamuna Devi was one of the most precious gems to have ever inhabited this planet. She was, she is a most special ambassador of Divine love who distributed Prabhupada's mercy and compassion with a most gloriously unique beauty and intensity on par with the the greatest of Paramahamsas. This book was a perfect collaborative reciprocation to the offering of love that was the life of Yamuna Devi.

This book has changed me for the better

I absolutely loved every moment of this book. It is an immaculate work of art. I am so grateful to Dinatarani Prabhu for writing this book and then narrating it. I feel reinspired in my spiritual life.
