She was also lead vocalist on on the popular Hare Krishna Mantra record and Radha-Krishna Temple album, helping popularize the chanting of Hare Krishna all over the world. She was the award-winning author of Lord Krishna's Cuisine, as well as other ground-breaking gourmet vegetarian cookbooks. She passed away in Florida, USA, in December 2011.
