Yada yada hi dharmasya glanirbhavati bharata. Abhythanamadharmasya tadatmanam srijamyaham
Paritranaya sadhunang vinashay cha dushkritam
Dharmasangsthapanarthay sambhabami yuge yuge.”
She further said, “Bhagwan Shri Krishna ne yeh kahan. Woh hamesha hamare saath rahe. Aaj bhi saath hain aur aage bhi saath rahenge, yeh mujhe vishwaas hai. Main aap sabko pranaam karti hoon aur aagya leti hoon (Lord Krishna said this. He is always with us. He is with us today and will remain in the future as well. I greet you all and will take your leave).”

Suniye! Kya boli thi mahaan gaayika.”

Anupam Kher@AnupamPKherलता जी का भगवद्गीता के श्लोक को गाते हुए आख़री संदेश; 22/12/2021 की दोपहर zoom पर आज़ादी का अमृत महोत्सव कमेटी की दूसरी मीटिंग में जब लता जी की बोलने की बारी आयी तो फ़ैन होने के नाते मेरा दिल किया की मैं उनकी आवाज़ रिकार्ड कर लूँ! सुनिये! क्या बोली थीं विश्व की महान गायिका!
Lata Ji .. Appreciates ISKCON’s Founder Acharya, Srila Praphupada -:
.. Devotional Vibes 🌟 Going Bare foot -:
लता जी के लिए गाना पूजा के समान है। रिकॉर्डिंग के समय वे हमेशा नंगे पैर ही गाती हैं। लता जी ने अपने पिता जी द्वारा दिया गया तम्बूरा अब तक संभालकर रखा है। कागज पर कुछ भी लिखने के पूर्व वे ‘श्रीकृष्ण‘ लिखती हैं।
India’s “Nightingale” Sings for Krishna
Lata Mangeshkar, the world’s most prolific recording artist (with more than twenty thousand songs to her credit), went on a rare concert tour of North America.
Lata Mangeshkar known as “the nightingale of India,” the humble Miss Mangeshkar has won the Padma Bushan, India’s highest national award, and so many “Filmfare” awards (her country’s equivalent of the Oscar) that she’s had to declare herself ineligible for more. Time magazine called her “the indisputable and indispensable queen of India’s playback singers.”
When she went on stage last January 30 at Los Angeles’ Shrine Auditorium, Miss Mangeshkar told her audience, “I’m giving this concert as a benefit program for the International Society for Krishna Consciousness. The proceeds are going to a cultural theater they’re building in Bombay.” She then captivated her fans with a three-hour concert beginning with the Bhagavad-gita and going on to the popular songs that have made her India’s most famous vocalist.
“I began singing at age five,” she said after the concert. “My father taught me our classical music—ragas from the Vedas. When I was a child, I learned to sing only for God.” And why the benefit concert? “My whole family are members of the Hare Krishna society… When I sing for Lord Krishna; everything is complete.”

Today another devotee is called back. Her assignment perfectly complete. Coincidentally that was the day for Saraswati Puja.
.. May she eternally sing for Krishna! Hare Krishna!
