Pravrajika Varadaprana Passes Away

Varadaprana was born Doris Ludwig in Los Angeles in 1923. She was born with an innate musical talent, which she used and enjoyed her entire life. She began piano at the age of five and soon progressed to violin, organ, voice, harmonium and tabla. Her exquisite and original musical compositions were her greatest gift and are widely performed in Vedanta Societies throughout the country. While still a teenager, Doris discovered The Gospel of Sri Ramakrishna at the Los Angeles Public Library and that discovery changed her life. When she turned 21, she became one of the original nuns of the Vedanta Society, joining its convent in Hollywood in 1944. She moved to the Santa Barbara convent in 1947 and remained in here until her passing.
