Prabhaben Patel, age 88, went to dham (passed away) at 10:15 AM on Monday, January 4, 2021. Prabhaben's wish was to sit in Akshardham (God's abode) and be in the service of Swaminarayan Bhagwan and Pramukh Swami Maharaj. She passed away peacefully with the prayers to God and lived a fulfilling life.
Prabhaben was born on November 28, 1932. Prabhaben is survived by 5 daughters, 1 son, 13 grandchildren, and 8 great grandchildren. She was a loving mother, grandmother, and great grandmother. She spent her life in service of her family and her Gurus, Pramukh Swami Maharaj and Mahant Swami Maharaj. Her ever-loving spirit and true devotion to God never went unnoticed.
She inspired her children and their children to live a life with unity, love, and devotion. Until her very last breathe, she demonstrated what it meant to be a true and a staunch devotee of Bhagwan Swaminarayan. Even with declining health, she never compromised her niyam-dharma.
Prabhaben was loved and served by all. She was especially fond of her daughter-in-law, Sunitaben. Sunitaben also loved and cared deeply for her mother-in-law until the very end. Prabhaben appreciated and was truly satisfied by the love and care she received. She was also served greatly by her son, daughters, her grandsons and grandaughters.
Prabhaben will always be remembered and loved by all as a lioness of Swamishri with the courage she showed. On behalf of Prabhaben, we would like to thank everyone for their prayers and support. We would like to request everyone to celebrate her life and strength.
