Author Vrnda Devi was an inspired animal rights activist, proprietor of a popular food bank, an international charitable aid worker, an initiated devotee of Bhagavan Sri Krishna, a mother of four, and a loving wife. All of her life Vrnda selflessly cared for the poor and freely gave of herself in all things. In India she was known lovingly as "Mother Vrnda" to the many yogis and saints she compassionately served both there and at the eight-acre ashram/cow shelter she founded in Lockport, New York. Ms Devi passed away quietly at home in front of the deities of Sri Sri Radha Krishna on December 26, 2017. She was the humble first disciple of His Divine Grace Bhakti Hirday Mangalniloy Maharaj of Vrndavan and the founder of Sri Radhe International, The Spiritual Realization Institute, and Dasa Food for All. Ms Devi was also the author of 12 internationally popular books from 1984 to 2006.
