Relishing Tapovan (Album of photos)
Indradyumna Swami: Yesterday we visited the forest of Tapovan where the young gopi girls of Vrindavan performed austerities to get Krsna as their husband. In that small, but idyllic set of woods, we heard how the girls ate simply for one month, bathed daily in the cold waters of the Yamuna river and prayed continuously to the goddess Katyayani. At the end of the month they went to Chir Ghat, some distance down the river, where Krsna fulfilled their deep spiritual desires. W...

Giving Thanks to Whom?
Mahesvara Das: At the end of this month the people of America celebrate the event called “Thanksgiving”. As the title implies, the whole purpose of this event is to stop and become consciously grateful for the things we have each been given. Traditionally people take this time to give thanks to God for the gifts of the bountiful harvest and the blessings of family, friends, and good health etc.
Of course, the holiday assumes an acceptance that there is a God to gi...

Mansarovar, Bhandirvan & Belvan Parikrama (1 Nov, 2019) (Album of photos)
Vrindavan is a very mystical place where Srimati Radharani and Sri Krishna perform various pastimes which are beyond our mental perception.

A beautiful Radha Shila is worshiped in that place and we could witness an actual kunja where various pastimes go on. Then when we visited Bhandirvan, we got ...
