Why Krsna left? By Bhurijan Das

Krsna says that the gopikas (Srimati Radhika being the topmost) are so dear to Him. And then He leaves them and goes to Mathura. How is it possible? Is He so casual, just “Ram Ram. There are beautiful women in Mathura also”? No, His heart is so grateful and kind. In the 11th Canto His heart will again come out in the open, even though He does not plan…

4. Let me not desire anything but the highest good for my worst…

By Sacinandana Swami

For a divine relationship to manifest, we need three elements: 

Bhakta: the devotee

Bhakti: the process of devotional service (chanting is a limb of bhakti).

When these three come together, the Holy Name dances on the tongue of the devotee as described by Srila Rupa Goswami, ‘Love (bhakti)…
