About HG Malati devi dasi
HG Malati devi joined ISKCON in San Francisco, USA. She was initiated by Srila Prabhupada in San Francisco in early 1967, and became an integral part of the pioneer years of ISKCON. In 1968, along with her six week old daughter Saraswati, HG Malati devi was part of a team of six adults to first establish Krishna consciousness in the UK.
This epic adventure resulted in the release of the Radha‐Krishna Temple album in 1969, produced by Beatle George Harrison. The Hare Krishna maha-mantra and other devotional songs are featured on this recording, which received worldwide attention. She often traveled with her husband HG Shyamasundar dasa, who was Srila Prabhupada’s personal secretary. Among other tasks HG Malati devi dasi cooked for Srila Prabhupada.
HG Malati devi dasi spends most of her time traveling, offering classes and instructions in Krishna conscious practice and philosophy, and is a regular participant in interreligious gatherings. She holds deep concern for the future of ISKCON in general, and for the youth in particular. She advocates engaging women in all manners of service, inspired by Srila Prabhupada, who always engaged her in service.
