Sri Sri Krishna Balarama Showers a Huge Cloudbank of Mercy Upon Queens, NY

Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada.

This web-site needs diacritics. The name Haladhari (with a final long i) is masculine in gender. It is the nominative singular of the masculine noun ‘dharin,’ meaning bearer or holder. This idental usage of ‘dhari’ occurs in the word “giri-vara-dhari,” as found in Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakura’s famous song. The same masculine long i ending is also familar to us in words like ‘yogi,’ and ’svami.’

I thank Mithua Prabhu for his vivid description of the installation. The wonderful, spirited chanting of the assembled devotees, always increasing in intensity, reminded me of the installation of Krishna-Balarama in Vrindaban. For three days the local brahmana performed elaborate rituals, but Srila Prabhupada told us that it was actually our chanting that installed the Dieties. The Dieties are manifest in response to the call of the devotees, and They certainly received a wonderful welcome in Richmond Hills that night!
