It is supplemented with relevant complimentary music and narrative featuring Yamuna.
In part two, Yamuna faces challenges and austerities while serving in Vrindavan. In 1974 she leaves the Krishna-Balarama Temple project and moves to Oregon with Dinatarini to begin a women's ashram. Her beloved deities are installed there. In the ensuing years, Yamuna and Dinatarini move extensively, each move bringing its own challenges and inspirations. In 1984 Yamuna's epic cookbook, Lord Krishna's Cuisine: The Art of Indian Vegetarian Cooking, is released to unprecedented praise. In 1998 Yamuna and Dinatarini, seeking a simpler life, move to Saranagati Village to live off the grid in a self-built Vastu-designed home. Here Yamuna lovingly shares kirtan, classes, deity seva, and devotional inspiration. Health issues later force Yamuna to move to Florida, where she continues to inspire others in bhakti until her passing.
