    Over 500 years ago in Navadwipa, West Bengal the lunar eclipse brought the Hindus to Mother Ganga to chant the Holy Names unknowingly heralding the appearance of the Yuga Avatar whose mission was to induce everyone to chant Hare Krishna in ecstatic rapture as service and in love-- his “acharya lila” demonstrated this practice.

    This poem has been waiting for weeks O help me Lord will it ever be complete? or adequately convey what I truly want to say as a kind of snapshot of my life’s experience or a particular perception?
