    Today (for my Australian readers, anyway) is the full-moon birthday of Lord Balarama, the eternally youthful brother of Lord Krishna. This evening I'm attending the Hare Krishna festivities here in Sydney. In sacred Vedic theology, it is described how Lord Balarama is the first personal bodily expansion of Lord Krishna, the Supreme Personality of Godhead. All other incarnations expand from Him. In Lord Krishna's earthly pastimes, He plays as Krishna's older brother. Together Krishna and...

    My Godsister Yamuna Devi sadly passed away not too long ago. I would like to continue to occasionally offer her classic recipes online for your cookery pleasure. Yamuna’s Baked Bananas Stuffed with Tamarind-Flavoured Coconut (Nariyal Bhara Kela) Bananas are native to India and are one of the most popular fruits of the nation. There are said to be staggering 400 varieties of bananas. Even so, they are divided into only two categories: eating and cooking. In this dish, a small, very sweet...
