Radhesyam, The Humble Vaisnava Shoeman
Radhesyam, The Humble Vaisnava Shoeman.
HG Srutakirti Prabhu: Radhesyam has been keeping our shoes safe at the Krishna Balaram Mandir for over a decade. He remembers just about everyone and their footwear.
After giving Him my shoes for a few days I stopped doing it because it was so crowded by his stall. I just put them aside along a wall. After 3 days he saw me walking into the temple. He knew I hadn’t been leaving my sandals with him. He looked at me and simply said, ‘shoes’!!?
He was upset I wasn’t letting him store them for me. I can learn much from Radhesyam prabhu. A wonderful devotee and a friend.
If you stay long enough your shoes will get a special spot on the shelves so your waiting time is less.
I didn’t want to stop him from his service to take a photo so you can see him in action.
