Sarah Esther Gordon, 18 June 1927 – 24 May 2007

My mother passed away tonight at 10.25pm. Being a very private person (and as we expected) she waited until everyone had briefly left the room to make her exit.

Sanskrit prayers, sacred basil leaves (tulasi) and sanctified flowers and water completed the auspiciousness of the event.

Here’s a few favourite photos. No prizes to guess this day.

Here’s the family, circa 1982. My father is wearing his sacred japa beads. My parents were fortunate to meet, perform a little service for, and hear from my spiritual preceptor A.C Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada.
