    Anyone interested enough in the subject to made a life's study of books on the personality of God—especially as presented in the epic biography of Krishna and His avatars, the Srimad-Bhagavatam—will likely have experienced that no matter how much you "know" about Krishna or any of His uncountable manifestations, there's no end to such knowledge. The Bhagavatam and its post-graduate scripture Chaitanya Charitamrita describe the Supreme Person in very certain terms. His form, activities,...

    I like conch shells for many reasons. I like their shape, the way their spiral end looks like a finely tooled piece of ancient armor. I like it that Vishnu carries a conch shell. They're the bone of a dead animal, but they're used as horns or bathing vessels in Krishna worship. The ones I usually see are a marbled, caramel-and-cream color, but I keep hoping to find a black one, looking like it was carved out of ancient stone—a part of some recently discovered Vishnu Deity. To me, conch...

    I've been bitten by dogs. Once in the butt, when I was a twelve-year-old paperboy, by a customer's loose German shepherd ex-police dog. Another time in the face by my cousin's Great Dane, Zander, whom I made the mistake of saying "Hey, Zander!" to as I walked too close to the car window he was looking out of. So whenever a big dog likes me, I'm best friends for life. One such dog is my therapist friend Bhakti's yellow Labrador "therapy dog," Gaura. Gaura is 'uge (so big, there's no room for...

Such a devotee should not be seen from a materialistic point of view. Indeed, one should overlook a devotee's having a body born in a low family, a body with a bad complexion, a deformed body, or a diseased or infirm...

    Tuesday. "This is the best," I said. I was walking on the beach; it was quarter to eight in the morning, low tide, cool breeze—the low angle of sunrays lit the earth and sky into such rich, deep, otherworldly golden tones that I felt I had ascended to a higher realm. I half-expected to see luminous beings walking without touching the ground or riding unicorns and dolphins. The beauty struck me with such force that I said, out loud, "this is the best." But it's not really the best. It's...
