While doing parikrama around Govardhan Hill, I was reflecting back on all the times I have performed Govardhan parikrama in the last so many years. I reflected that each time I have performed it, it was always with different devotees at different phases in my life. My companions during the parikrama and my situation during the parikrama were all different. The only similar factor in all these parikramas was Govardhan Himself. Being an eternal form of the Lord, He is always the same. The more we

“Oh when, will divine attraction for hearing the pastimes of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu and His associates awaken within my heart?”

Today parikrama will reach the last camp, the last full day of this transcendental walk.

Soon after leaving Belpukur, the parikrama entered Simantadvipa- the island of Sravanam, hearing. The speakers were plenty and they filled all sincere ears with nectar like Krishna Katha.

This island is named after Parvati whose eagerness to take darshan of Mahaprabhu induced Him

In the middle of the sweet morning bhajans between 6am and 7am, dark clouds started to appear first scattered and then tight together covering the sky.

Lightning could be seen here and there like Lord Krishna’s moving dazzling dhoti. At that time the Parikrama was walking into an area of large plain fields.

They were going to get a boat to cross the Ganga. Just then, the drops slowly but surely poured increasingly from that dark morning sky.

Both the kirtan parties, prabhus and matajis, contin

HG Rajendranandana Prabhu

In a haste of enthusiasm, leaving their tents, throwing buckets of water on their heads and packing their bags within 5 minutes, the devotees hit the road.

“It seems that we are more than half way through, to complete Navadvipa Mandala. Have 5 days passed ? It feels like it started yesterday. Just when, we began to get used to it all, and even a little attached it , it is coming to and

“ We shouldn’t leave Parikrama the same person we were when we started it.”

-HH Bhakti Dhira Damodara Maharaj

Are you with us? The nectar is starting to overflow!

The mystical transformations which happen within the consciousness of a pilgrim of Navadvipa are indeed extraordinary and worthy of mention. As these few days pass which in ordinary life would most probably make no difference in one’s life, have brought about deep cleansing to all of us.

The story of today was something like this…

Pushkar Tirtha invited the Parikrama at its banks. There 3 small boys from the Bhaktivedanta Gurukul, played the pastime which took place there few thousand years before Mahaprabhu’s appearance. As Pancharatna Prabhu narrated in dramatic ways the boys gestured and moved in pure sincere ways. Even though they were a little more than 1,20 cm tall they caught the attention of everyone. With a short practice about 10 minutes before the performance they brought us closer to this Holy Tirtha named Pu
