20123-4月教诲的甘露

BB 哥文达·斯瓦米

 

33

  下午四点去参加玛达瓦帕布在MVT草坪上的克依尔坦。当我离开回家时一只厚脸皮的猴子看见我挂在脖子上的照相机,积极主动地冲向我,当我反击,拿我的披肩突然向它挥去并用布茹阿佳居民说的可恶的脏话吆喝它,使它受到生活中的冲撞。从树顶上我听见它对它的同伙说,那是我曾经攻击过的最奇怪的人他就像我们中的一员!!

坐在庙宇黑暗的房间中,玛达瓦唱颂,维施努打鼓,大声呼喊着圣名...然后高茹阿·尼太,奎师那·巴拉茹阿玛和茹阿戴·夏玛赐予觐见。加入唱颂...品尝纳玛-茹阿萨。

在屋顶上佳帕并凝望着施瑞拉·帕布帕德的萨玛迪。春季早晨的阳光是令人愉快的。

 

34

  克依尔坦在曼格拉阿尔提之前是丰富多彩的,在阿尔提期间茹阿达·夏玛穿着金色和栗色的服装,回家,今天是爱卡达西,在温达文是胡里节(印度节日)的第一天因而有数以万计的人在绕拜,刚进入罗西特小轿车在我去德里的路上,要飞往哈萨克斯坦度过高茹阿普尼玛。Holi He!!

  阿斯塔纳航空公司...起飞升空去阿拉木图。想念布茹阿佳...但是籍着施瑞·茹阿戴·夏玛的仁慈我们希望很快返回。

  一位纯粹的奉献者总是认为他自己不是奉献者。那是好的态度。如果一个人认为他是大奉献者想着他处在第一等级那是不好的。我们不应该自高自大自我膨胀,奉献者要避免它,总是保持在第二等级。狗是忠诚的仆人。成为最低等的狗处在服务的最高层面。奎师那赋予每一个人非同寻常的东西,用自己非同寻常的天资才能服务奎师那意味着成功的人生。施瑞拉·帕布帕德写给苏卡戴瓦的信,197334

 

35

  我登陆在寒冷的阿拉木图,过了日落,不是夜晚,蓝色时间,数千只黑鸟转圈飞翔寻觅它们黄昏的宿地,兴高采烈的奉献者们在飞机场迎接了我,去见彼玛勒和苏尔亚,然后去我在哈萨克斯坦的施瑞·温达文圣地给瑞茹阿佳旁边的第二个家。

 

39

  祝我所有的朋友们度过一个美好的高茹阿·普尼玛。主柴坦尼亚的名字是维施宛巴尔,意思是宇宙的维系者。愿我们大家得到由施瑞·柴坦尼亚赐予通过唱颂圣名而获得的光辉灿烂的奉爱来维持我们生活的祝福。施瑞·柴坦尼亚·玛哈帕布 克依 佳呀!!哈瑞纳玛 桑克依尔坦 雅格亚 克依 佳呀。

 

314

  我最喜爱的帕布帕德的克依尔坦。如果看上去我的末日临近,请...打开它,调大音量,我们大家不久之后就会在雅沐纳河岸边重逢。

 

315

  夏玛啊,请准予这样一个赐福:对那些居住在施瑞·温达文圣地极度甜美土地上的人们和那些带着坚定的情感长期渴望某一天能到达您那里的人们,哥库拉的主人啊,请作为他们朝气蓬勃的年轻朋友展现在他们的眼前吧。拉丽塔-玛达瓦。

 

317

  完成我们第一个早晨的哥瓦尔丹山五体投地绕拜,三个小时,从我家到尤嘎勒·嘎特,以对奎师那和温达戴薇的祈祷开始,努力保持内心的专注,请求温达·戴薇的诸多帮助,希望她听见我的祈祷因为我需要大量的仁慈。组员有玛达瓦,维施努,丹尼斯,茹阿萨·比哈瑞,高诸玛·比哈瑞,珀雅,卡纳,萨西,朋友们,请发送祝福愿我们的心意保持稳固,专注我们的内心,并满足我们的灵性愿望。佳呀 施瑞 温达文 圣地 克依 佳呀!!

  最好的联谊是服务主的奉献者,而且通过这样的联谊,籍着主纯粹奉献者的仁慈一个人能成为最具备资格的人。(圣典博伽瓦谭 2.10.41

 

318

   03:30...前往庙宇参加玛达瓦的克依尔坦。

  星期天+爱卡达西=数不胜数的人们在绕拜。我们组在佳格纳特庙宇那边主柴坦尼亚休息过的榕树下完成了我们第三天的五体投地绕拜。我们都回到家并荣耀了给瑞茹阿佳的玛哈·菩萨达姆,在我们中间划分一个完整的蜂房并饮用加入俄罗斯蜂蜜的冷藏柠檬汁。在温达文很惬意的住所一个很清新的早晨得到一个很甜美的结局!!                         

  如果把数百万宇宙的富裕或知识聚集在一起,它们都很难等同于奎师那圣名荣耀的一块小小碎片。奎师那的圣名是我的生命。它是我人生的目标。它意味着我将忙于实现我的人生目标。(施瑞拉·茹帕·哥斯瓦米,帕迪亚瓦里)

 

319

  我们温达文绕拜小组今天早晨绕拜到铁轨处并籍着施瑞·奎师那的仁慈明天将完成绕拜。现在我要步行绕拜以便完成佳帕。佳呀 施瑞 温达文 达玛 克依 佳呀!!

  坐在凯西嘎特的另一边啜饮冷藏的莱哈尔苏打水。布茹阿佳是38度,很热,当天气是这样的时候绕拜是疯狗和英国人干的事情。我是疯狗...但是...我喜欢绕拜。

 

320

  03:48,温达文五体投地绕拜的最后一天,祈祷温达文的尘土对于怎样提高我的灵性生活给予一些暗示,信息不断地传递过来...“更好的佳帕”“更好的佳帕”“更好的佳帕”...我将努力把信息记在心中。哈瑞奎师那 来自温达文愉快凉爽黑暗的早晨。

 

322

  坐在玛达瓦一大早克依尔坦的行列中,曼格拉达善,和萨特瓦塔帕布进行温达文绕拜,有股非常非常凉爽的微风一直吹着,回家整个上午和昨天到达布茹阿佳的希瓦茹阿玛·斯瓦米在一起。今天下午18:00将和希瓦茹阿玛·斯瓦米,玛达瓦帕布及一名温达文库塔举行克依尔坦。请在18:00 连接哥文达斯瓦米频道。

  另外...四名土匪刚刚袭击了我的厨房并拿着葡萄逃跑了。卡利年代在进展且流氓们的胆子越来越大。

  在成为萨尼亚西之前我的名字是阿尤迪亚帕提·达萨,主茹阿玛的一个名字。有一次一名萨杜(圣人)和我开玩笑告诉我说我是"Dasa of Ayodhyapati,"茹阿玛的仆人,言下之意,哈努曼。萨杜说我像哈努曼一样强壮有力同时像猴子一样丑陋!!下一次当地毛茸茸的歹徒袭击时我将显现哈努曼的形象把他们吓跑。(笑)

 

323

  茹阿达·巴瓦·高尔·达斯写给BB 哥文达·斯瓦米;玛哈茹阿佳,您看起来如此英俊且总是极乐的样子----是的,您的阿尤迪亚帕提的岁月是最好的菩萨达姆的岁月。我们在温达文品尝过而您吃了很多苦,在温达文高温天气下苦行做大量的博嘎(还没有供奉的食物)和菩萨达姆。我们总是非常感激您阁下。

 

327

  昨天晚上在家举行了精彩的克依尔坦。今天早晨我向玛达瓦和茹阿迪卡告别因为他们要去瑞士。由于天气是如此宜人我和希瓦茹阿玛·斯瓦米进行了早晨的散步,先看望普瑞姆·克施瑞的奶牛雅沐纳,然后去卡利亚·嘎特和帕博达南达·斯瓦米的萨玛迪,后来是玛丹·莫汉和德瓦达萨迪特亚·提拉,继续到依沐利·塔勒·施云嘎尔·瓦特,最后是凯西·嘎特。

  ...

  他解释说奎师那杀死凯希恶魔的那天阿库茹阿来到南达卦姆家把两兄弟带到了玛图茹阿。那天早晨奎师那消沉不想起来。但是当他听说凯希恶魔正引发如此大的动乱就立刻起床了。

  雅首达看见奎师那很活跃就问他准备去干什么而他回答,妈妈...我想骑那匹马。她答道,没什么要做的,你爸爸会照料它。

  仍然...他设法离开家并且一路从南达卦姆到凯希嘎特是一场长时间的战斗。搏杀之后所有布茹阿佳的居民在凯希嘎特沐浴和休息。

  从凯希嘎特,我们步行到茹阿达·哥库拉南达庙,达善,一队孟加拉优秀的克依尔坦歌手在达善区域的阴凉处领导着一场热烈的克依尔坦,我们参观了庭院,然后走到哥帕拉·巴塔·哥斯瓦米的萨玛迪,对施瑞·施瑞·茹阿达·茹阿曼吉表示美好沉默的达善,然后返回看望在萨玛迪的高茹阿·尼太,奎师那·巴拉茹阿玛,茹阿戴·夏玛,拉丽塔,维萨卡,给瑞茹阿佳和施瑞拉·帕布帕德。

  现在是16:57...温达文是38度,我的电扇以最慢的速度默默地旋转着,在达努卡宾馆今天是五天雅格亚学习的第四天,从早到晚唱诵着韦达曼陀罗。

  我家后门廊悬挂的叶子花(攀爬植物)是说话优美动听的小鹊知更鸟喜欢的社会聚集地,在茹阿达·提拉的鹦鹉们正喋喋不休...温达文啊,我的家,请让我为您服务。

 

330

  昨天我们步行直到凯希嘎特前。在那里我们看见雅沐纳河边一艘装饰美丽的船且船工的名字叫嘎纳夏玛。我们登上他的船,在浮桥下航行,路过戴瓦茹阿哈·巴巴的萨玛迪,漂流在生活着如此众多鸟类的雅沐纳吉神奇宽广的区域,继续顺流而下直至我们来到帕尼·岗。

  在帕尼·...雅沐纳河边有一座小山,山顶上有一棵古老的菩提树,树下是杜尔瓦萨·穆尼(圣人)的阿刷阿玛。

  就是在这个地方布茹阿佳的姑娘们供养了杜尔瓦萨·穆尼而且施瑞玛提·茹阿达茹阿妮接受了他(圣人)的祝福以至于她的烹饪品尝起来总是像甘露一样。

 

331

  昨天是希瓦茹阿玛·斯瓦米的生日。因为他想去视察一个他下一生世想要居住的地方我们去了佳瓦特然后步行到特尔·卡当巴和阿塞施瓦茹阿·玛哈戴瓦。

  所有我能够说的是那是很极乐的。

 

43

  曼格拉·阿尔提,普佳,和希瓦茹阿玛·斯瓦米进行了愉快的古茹普佳克依尔坦舞蹈,伤感地离开温达文,高兴地前往德班参加檀车节。我恳求继续留在茹阿戴·夏玛,奎师那·巴拉茹阿玛和高茹阿·尼太莲花足下清凉的树荫之地...佳呀 佳呀 茹阿戴 佳呀 佳呀 夏玛 佳呀 佳呀 施瑞 温达文 达玛...帕瓦纳 茹阿达 特柔 纳玛 帕瓦纳 施瑞 温达文 达玛!!

  大慈大悲的玛哈帕布啊!!!请允许这个堕落的灵魂在这个纳茹阿星哈戴瓦·查图尔达西节日来到您的领地...请请请...在我的心中带来某项计划以便今年五月份我能够到达那里到达施瑞·玛亚·达玛!!!!何时,噢何时我才能四处徘徊,在纳瓦兑帕的树荫下在神圣的恒河岸边匍匐植物下哭泣?我要大声呼喊茹阿戴啊!奎师那啊!并且完全忘记关于这个物质躯体的所谓快乐。何时我才能向纳瓦兑帕圣地所有的居民跪拜并接受一点儿他们无缘的仁慈?我将全身涂抹外士那瓦莲花足下的尘土,还要穿上一身疯癫流浪乞丐的服装。

  为什么在印度盛夏初始树木落叶??

 

46

  在德班度过檀车节。与苏尼勒·莫汉和黑曼吉在一起...今天早晨我们参观了庙宇并看见一群光彩夺目的外士那瓦。节日在今天13:00开始...佳呀 佳干纳特 斯瓦米 克依 佳呀!!

  我心爱的施瑞·茹阿达茹阿玛纳啊♥ ♥ ♥,请让我在心中,灵魂中和梦境中拥有您...在心中体验到您...因为爱您已经给予我力量知道了我到底是谁。

 

48

  昨天我们在大舞台上唱颂了一个小时的克依尔坦,帐篷爆满且客人们大声清晰地唱着。从下午七点到十一点露天舞台上响彻着玛达瓦帕布,因卓杜姆纳·斯瓦米和一位来自温达文奉献者超然激动的克依尔坦歌声。在最后一首克依尔坦期间,苏尔亚和两位来自开普敦欣喜若狂的奉献者吹响了令人惊异的小号。在某一曲调我要求开普敦萨克斯号手吹响他的小号就像约翰·科特恩一样而我们所有人几乎要摔下舞台。有优美的舞蹈,快乐的唱颂,通过哈瑞纳玛促进与主永远幸福的团聚。晚间结束是以我们大家拜访哥帕拉·茹阿佳和图拉茜·普瑞亚的比萨帐篷并吃光了她们一天所有的盈利(笑)。德班 佳格纳特 茹阿塔亚卓 克依 佳呀!!

  对所有人...我们祝愿你们度过一个快乐的复活节庆典。让我们留出一点时间记忆和冥想耶稣基督显示给我们大家纯粹的爱的献祭。愿他对主坚定不移的奉献成为榜样并以光辉引领我们渡过物质生活的湍流。

 

412

  在约堡(南非约翰内斯堡的城市),今晚在莱纳西亚(约翰内斯堡城的一部分)讲课和克依尔坦。回家我收到一份500亿美元令人惊讶的捐赠...所有数字打印在一张票面上!!可惜...它们是来自津巴布韦的钞票。(笑)

 

415

德班秋季美丽的一天,天空极其晴朗,太阳是友好的温暖,施瑞·施瑞·茹阿达·茹阿达纳特是灿烂华丽的,克依尔坦是清凉的微风盘旋在整个庙堂。当雅杜巴尔帕布唱颂时我想起今天是施瑞拉·阿肯查拉·奎师那·达萨·巴巴吉隐迹三十周年。我祈祷他将从忙碌的娱乐和哥楼卡-温达文的服务中花几秒钟时间向我们这些渴望唱颂施瑞·奎师那圣名的人们发送珍贵深情的祝福。

 

423

  再见了南非彩虹之国。我最深切地感谢所有优秀奉献者的联谊,克依尔坦,音乐节,菩萨达姆,美丽的风景,再说一遍,精彩的联谊。希望2013年在一个更大更好的檀车节上见到大家。哈瑞奎师那!!佳呀 佳呀 施瑞茹阿戴 夏玛!!

  起飞升空漫长的旅行回温达文。佳呀 佳呀 施瑞 茹阿戴 夏玛!!哈瑞奎师那!!

 

426

  我在去温达文的公路上。天气阴暗,有风,小雨。回家我是如此的高兴。

  00:20...星期五,布茹阿佳25度令人惊讶的凉爽,我感激茹阿戴·夏玛允许我回家,从温达文圣地祝大家晚安。

 

429

  曼格拉阿尔提,24度,我想甜美的歌声是达尔玛特玛帕布的声音,会见阿迪·凯萨瓦帕布和布巴内斯瓦尔帕布,现在回家普佳然后去哥瓦尔丹山。

  在哥瓦尔丹山坦玛伊·哥斯瓦米的阿育韦达诊所已采用更为清洁的称为Virechanam的宇宙排水渠。有点想起我孩提时梦想成为一名美国国家航空航天局的宇航员,耐心地等待着发射升空。(笑)

 

430

  温达文,10:1934度,隐约听见来自附近克依尔坦的鼓声,鸟儿们叽叽喳喳,隔壁房间人们工作的声音,预计今天气温高达40度。随着暑热增加...下午将变得更加安静。

  现在我要戴上帽子绕着温达文佳帕步行。

  布茹阿佳是灵性点金石之矿藏。通过发展我们的规范修行奉爱,施瑞·古茹和施瑞·奎师那的仁慈将如雨倾盆洒向我们,只有那时我们可能有幸看见普瑞玛的闪亮珠宝。

 

英文原文

March 3

  Went to Madhava Prabhu's kirtan on the MVT lawn at 4 PM. When I left to return home a very cheeky monkey saw my camera hanging around my neck, aggressively rushed me, and got the shock of his life when I attacked back, popped him with my chaddar, and showered him with horrible Brajavasi dirty words. I heard him tell his partner, from the top of the tree, "that was the strangest human I ever attacked ... he was just like one of us !!"

  Sitting in the dark temple room, Madhava singing, Vishnu playing drum, crying the holy names ... and then the names give darshan as Gaura Nitai, Krishna Balaram, and Radhe Shyam. Join the chant .. taste nama-rasa.

Japa on the roof and gazing across at Srila Prabhupada's samadhi. The spring morning sun is pleasing.

March 4

  Kirtan prior to Mangala Arati was very rich, during Arati Radha Shyam were dressed in gold and maroom, went home, today is Ekadasi, the first day of  Holi in Vrindavan and there are tens of thousands of people on Parikrama, just enter the car of Rohit and am on my way to Delhi to fly out to Kazakhstan for Gaura Purnima. Holi He!!

  Air Astana…Blasting off to Almaty. Missing Vraja…but by Sri Radhe Shyam’s grace we hope to be back soon.

  ‎"A pure devotee always thinks himself as not-devotee. That is a good attitude. If one thinks he is big devotee that is not good, thinking that he is first degree. We should not be puffed up, a devotee avoids it, remaining always in the second degree. A dog is a faithful servant. To become lowest dog is to become on the highest platform of service. Krsna has given everyone something extraordinary and to serve Krsna with one's extraordinary talent means successful life." Srila Prabhupada letter to Sukadeva, March 4, 1973

March 5

  I've landed in cold Almaty, past sunset, not night, the "blue hour," thousands of black birds flying in circles looking for their evening hostel, bright devotees met me at the airport, going to see Bimal and Surya, then to my second home by the side of Giriraja at Sri Vrindavan Dham in Kazakhstan.

March 9

  A wonderful Gaura Purnima to all my friends. Lord Caitanya's name was Visvambhara, which means the maintainer of the universe. May we all be blessed to have our lives maintained by the effulgent Prema Bhakti that Sri Caitanya gives through the chanting of the holy names. Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu Ki Jai !! Harinama Sankirtan Yajna Ki Jai.

March 14

  My favourite Prabhupada kirtan. If it seems my end is near, please .. turn this on, crank up the volume, and we'll all meet shortly on the banks of the Yamuna.

March 15

  “O Shyam, Please grant this one benediction: To those persons who reside in the profoundly sweet land of Sri Vrindavan Dham and who for a long time yearn with a steady heart to someday attain You, please O master of Gokula, appear before their eyes as their youthful friend.” Lalita-Madhava

March 17

  Finished our first morning of Vrindavan Dandavat Parikrama, 3 hours, my house unto Yugal Ghat, starting with a prayer to Krishna and Vrindadevi, trying to keep internal focus, asking Vrinda Devi for a lot of help, hope She hears my prayers as I need strong doses of mercy. Madhava, Visnu, Denis, Rasa Bihari, Godruma Bihari, Pooya, Kana, Saci is the team, friends, send a blessing that our minds remain fixed, our focus internal, and our spiritual hope is fulfilled. Jai Sri Vrindavan Dhama Ki Jai !!

  ‎" The best association is the service of the devotees of the Lord, and by that association one can become the highest qualified man by the grace of the Lord's pure devotees." [SB. Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 2.10.41 ]

 March 18

    ‎03:30 ... Heading to the temple for Madhava's kirtan.

  Sunday + Ekadasi = 10 zillion people on Parikrama. Our team finished our third day of dandavats just beyond the Jagannatha Temple and Banyan Tree where Lord Caitanya rested. We all came home and honoured Giriraja's Maha Prasadam, divided a full honey comb amongst us and drank cold lemon juice sweetened with Russian honey. A very sweet conclusion to a very sweet morning in the very sweet abode of Vrindavan !!

  ‎"If the opulence or knowledge of many millions of universes were clustered together, they would hardly equal a small fragment of the glory of Krishna's holy name. Krishna's holy name is my life. It is the goal of my life. It is the means I will employ to attain the goal of my life." [ Srila Rupa Goswami, Padyavali ]

March 19

  Our Vrindavan Parikrama Team made it to the train tracks this morning and by Sri Krishna's grace we will complete parikrama tomorrow. Now I will go for walking parikrama so I can get my japa completed. Jai Sri Vrindavan Dhama Ki Jai!!

 Sitting on the other side of Kesighat sipping cold Lehar soda water. Vraja is 38 degrees, seriously hot, when it comes to this point Parikrama is the business of "mad dogs and Englishmen". I'm the mad dog .. but .. Loving it.

March 20

  ‎03:48, last day of Vrindavan Dandavat Parikrama, praying to the dust of Vrindavan for some hints on how to improve my spiritual life, the message keeps coming .. "better japa" "better japa" "better japa" .. I will try to take the message to heart. Hare Krishna from the pleasantly cool dark morning in Vrindavan.

March 22

  Sat in Madhava's early morning kirtan, had mangala darshan, Vrindavan Parikrama with Satvata Prabhu, there was a very, very, cool breeze blowing the entire time, returned to spend the morning with Sivarama Swami, who yesterday arrived in Vraja. This afternoon at 18:00 there will be kirtan with Sivarama Swami, Madhava Prabhu, and one Vrindavan kutta. Please check the govindaswami ustream link at 18:00.

  PS .. 4 Vrindavan bandits just struck in my kitchen and made off with the grapes. Kali yuga is advancing and these varmints are becoming bolder and bolder.

Before sannyas my name was Ayodhyapati dasa, a name of Lord Rama.

Once a sadhu joked with me and told me that I was the "Dasa of Ayodhyapati," the servant of Rama, in other words, Hanumanji. The sadhu said I was as strong as Hanuman and as ugly as a monkey!!

 Next time the local furry bandits strike I'll manifest my form of Hanuman and scare the heck out of them :)

March 23

  Radha Bahva Gaur das----BB Govinda Swami Maharaj, you look so handsome and blisssfull always-yes your HG Ayodhyapati days were the best prasadam days .We had there at vrindavan and you took so much pain and austerities to cook bhoga and prasadam in huge quantities in the thick heat of vrindavan. We are always obliged to your holiness.

March 27

  Had a wonderful kirtan at home yesterday evening.

This morning I bade au revoir to Madhava and Radhika as they left for Swiss.

Because the weather was so pleasant Sivarama Swami and I took a morning walk, first visiting Prem Kishore's cow Yamuna, then to Kaliya Ghat and Prabhodananda Swami's samadhi, then Madan Mohan and Dvadasaditya Tila, on to Imli Tal, Shringhar Vat, then Kesi Ghat.

...

He explained that the day Krishna killed the Kesi demon was the day that Akrura came to Nandagram to take the two brothers to Mathura. Krishna was depressed and that morning did not want to get up from bed. But when he heard that the Kesi demon was causing such a disturbance he at once got up.

When Yasoda saw Krishna so activated she asked what he was up to and he replied, "Mom .. I want to go ride the horse." She replied, "nothing doing, your father will take care of it."

Still .. he managed to leave his house and it was a long battle that went all the way from Nandagram to Kesighat. After the fight all the Vrajavasis bathed and rested at Kesighat.

From Kesi Ghat, we walked to Radha Gokulananda Temple, had darshan, a wonderful group of Bengali kirtaneers were leading a ripping kirtan in the shade of the darshan area, we visited the samadhi courtyard, then walked up to Gopal Bhatta Goswami's samadhi, had a beautiful silent darshan of Sri Sri Radha Ramanji, then returned to see Gaura Nitai, Krishna Balarama, Radhe Shyam, Lalita, Visakha, Giriraja, Srila Prabhupada at the samadhi.

Now it is 16:57 .. 38 degrees here in Vrindavan, my fan is silently swirling at the lowest speed, it is the 4th day of a 5 day yajna at Dhanuka Guest House, from morning till night veda mantras are chanted, the bougainvilla overhanging my back porch is a favourite social venue for small magpie robins who speak beautifully, the parrots at Radha Tila are chattering ... O Vrindavan, my home, please let me serve you.

March 30

  Yesterday we walked until just before Kesighat. There we saw a beautifully decorated boat on the Yamuna shore and the boatman's name was Ghanashyam.

We boarded his boat, flowed beneath the pontoon bridge, sailed past Devraha Baba's samadhi, drifted in an amazingly wide area of Yamunaji where there was such a variety of bird life, and continued downstream till we came to Pani Gaon.

At Pani Gaon... there is a small hill on the side of the Yamuna, at the top of the hill was an ancient Pipal Tree, and beneath that Pipal tree is the asrama of Durvasa Muni.

It was at this place that the Vraja Gopis fed Durvasa Muni and where Srimati Radharani received his blessing that her cooking would always taste like amrita.

March 31

  Yesterday was HH Sivarama Swami's birthday. As he wanted to visit a place where he would like to live in his next life we went to Javat and then walked the path to Ter Kadamba and Aseshwara Mahadeva.

All I can say is that it was very blissful.

Apr.3

  Mangala Arati, puja, very good dancing gurupuja Kirtan with Sivarama Swami, have sadly left Vrindavan, happily on my way to Durban for Rathayatra. I beg to remain under the cooling shade of Radhe Shyam and Krishna Balarama's and Gaura Nitai's lotus feet .. Jai Jai Radhe Jai Jai Shyam Jai Jai Sri Vrindavan Dham .. Pavana Radha Tero Nama Pavana Sri Vrindavan Dham !!

  Oh All Merciful Mahaprabhu!!! Please Allow This Fallen Soul To Come To Your Land This Narsimhadeva Caturdasi…Please Please Please…Bring Some Plan To My Mind So That I Could Come There To Sri Maya Dhama This May!!!! When, Oh When Will I Wander Here And There, Weeping Under The Shade Of The Trees And Creepers Along The... Banks Of The Celestial Ganges River In Navadvipa? I Will Cry Out "Oh Radhe! Oh Krsna!", And I Will Completely Forget About All The So-Called Pleasures Of This Material Body. When Will I Bow Down To All The Inhabitants Of The Holy Land Of Navadvipa And Receive A Bit Of Their Causeless Mercy? I Will Smear The Dust Of The Vaisnavas' Lotus Feet All Over My Body, And I Will Wear The Dress Of A Mad Wandering Mendicant.

  Why do the trees drop their leaves at the beginning of the hot season in India ??

Apr.6

  In Durban for Rathayatra. Staying with Sunil Mohan and Hemangi .. we visited the temple this morning and saw a galaxy of vaisnavas. Festival begins today at 13:00 .. Jai Jagannatha Swami Ki Jai !!

  Oh My Beloved Sri RadhaRamana ♥ ♥ ♥ Let me hold you in my heart, my soul, and in my dreams... experiencing you in my mind... for loving you has given me the power to know who I really am.

Apr.8

  Yesterday we sang kirtan on the big stage for an hour, the tent filled and the guests were singing loud and clear. From 7 PM till 11 PM the outdoor stage was filled with tumultuous transcendental sounds by the kirtan of Madhava prabhu, HH Indradyumna Swami, and one devotee from Vrindavan. During the last kirtan an amazing horn section was created between Surya and two ecstatic devotees from Cape T...own. At one point I requested the Cape Town Sax Player to blow his horn like John Coltrane and all of us practically fell off the stage. There was beautiful dancing, joyful chanting, which facilitated the ever blissful reunion with the Lord through Harinama. The evening concluded with all of us visiting the Pizza Tent of Gopal Raja and Tulasi Priya and eating up all of their profits of the day :) Durban Jagannatha Rathayatra Ki Jai !!

  And to all ... we wish you a joyful celebration of Easter. Let us all set aside some time to remember and meditate upon the sacrifice of pure love which was shown to us all by Jesus Christ. May his unflinching devotion to God be an example and ray of light which guides us across the turbulent ocean of material life.

Apr.12

  In Joburg, lecture and kirtan tonight in Lenasia.

 Returning home I received an amazing donation of ...

 50 BILLION DOLLARS ... All In one printed note !!

 Unfortunately ... they are from Zimbabwe Dollars. :)

Apr.15

  It is a beautiful autumn day in Durban, the sky is spotlessly clear, the sun is friendly-warm, Sri Sri Radha Radhanath are gorgeous, and the kirtan is the cool breeze swirling throughout the temple.

As Yadubara prabhu sang I remembered that today is the 30th year since Srila Akinchana Krishna dasa Babaji departed from this world.

I pray that he will take a few seconds from his busy play and service in Goloka Vrindavan to send his rich blessings to us aspiring chanters of Sri Krishna's holy names.

Apr.23

  Goodbye South African Rainbow Nation. My deepest thanks to all the wonderful devotees for their association, kirtans, festivals, prasadam, beautiful sights, and again, wonderful association. Hope to see everyone for a bigger, better Rathayatra 2013. Hare Krishna !! Jai Jai Sri Radhe Shyam !!

  Blasting off on a long journey to Vrindavan. Jai Jai Sri Radhe Shyam !! Hare Krishna !!

Apr.26

  I am on the road to Vrindavan. It is very overcast, windy, sprinkling of rain. I am so happy to returning home.

  ‎00:20 .. Friday, an amazingly cool 25 degrees in Vraja, I thank Radhe Shyam for allowing me to come back home, good night to all from Sri Vrindavan Dham.

Apr.29

  Mangala arati, 24 degrees, I think the sweet voice was that of Dharmatma prabhu, met Adi Kesava and Bhubanesvara prabhus, now home for puja and off to Govardhan.

  At Tanmay Goswami's Ayurvedic Clinic at Govardhan and have taken the cosmic drain cleaner called Virechanam. Sort of remembering when I was a child dreaming to become a NASA astronaut, and patiently waiting to blast off. :)

Apr.30

   Vrindavan, 10:19, 34 degrees, faintly hearing the drums from a nearby kirtan, birds chattering, voices of the people working on the house next door, forecast is up to 40 degrees today. As the heat increases .. the afternoon will become more silent.

Now I will put my hat and take a japa walk around Vrindavan.

Vraja is a mine of spiritual touchstones. By developing our sadhana bhakti, Sri Guru and Sri Krishna's grace will rain upon us, only then we may be blessed to see the shining jewel of prema.
