A few years after she joined she went to Srila Prabhupada’s room one day. He looked at her and said, “Forget these nonsense material husbands. Take Krishna as your husband.”
He gifted her a beautiful small Deity of Krishna. Her Krishna was with her wherever she went.
Nandalal came to Vrindavan in 1977 or 1978. That is where I met her.
And starting from that time she lived 18 years at Govardhan. There was nothing at Govardhan at that time, but as a relatively young western woman she led an amazingly austere life, at the mercy of Sri Radhe, in the dust of Vraja. I never saw her again, but we met on Facebook and she was always so inspired to hear about Vraja.
All glories to Nandalal Mataji! May Sri Sri Radhe Shyam grant her eternal residence at the side of Giriraja Govardhan.
