Fund Me for Tryadisha Dasi (New Vrndavana)

Vidura Prabhu lost his battle with cancer on 2/20/16 - on the auspicious day of Lord Nityananda's Appearance in New Vrindaban Dham. He left with tulasi in his mouth, ganga water, Srila Prabhupada chanting in the background, his initiated beads in his hand, a rose garland of Radha-Vrindaban Chandra around him with his devoted wife Tryadisa reading the 6th canto of Srimad-Bhagavatam.

That said he left his wife of 40 years, Tryadisa, who had been rather dependent on him behind. She doesn't drive & recently had knee surgery. Their living conditions have been quite austere throughout the years - without running water & using wood for heat. That said devotees are banding together to take care of these things. If you would like to help out with some practical things, please contact Jayasri.

That said, we could show her a little more Brijabasi spirit by contributing something to help with funeral costs & ongoing maintenence. Vidya informed me that cremation costs around $2000. So I've set the goal pretty high to cover that & whatever other expenses she may incur. Please note that every little bit helps - $1 from every community member would equal hundreds...
