[republished from 2014-05-04] While the experience that prompted this free verse poem wasn’t planned, it was welcome, and seen as an occasion for reflection. Association with saints is desirable for developing good qualities, and yet being with people in general can also foster...

    Sri Narada asks: "What are the 32 forests of Vrndavana? I wish to hear of them. O Lord, if you think I am worthy to hear, please tell me of them." To this question Lord Krsna gave the following reply: "This place named Vrndavana is My transcendental abode.

"The forty miles of Vrndavana forest is My own transcendental form. The...

    [Reposted from 3-24-2010] On Tuesday April 4th, in the USA we observed Ram Navami, or Lord Rama's holy appearance day anniversary.
