The biggest day of my life has come Birthday of Shri Krishna.Please check this website for this year’s Janmashtami celebrations in London United Kingdom.
For other countries please check your local ISCKON temple celebrations.
This day for me is like soul day because concentration is totally towards Krishna .This day I I keep listening & talking about Krishna only feels easily get tears of unlimited ,unbeatable happiness feels like flowing like a pure stream of river.
It reminds me my childhood days in India when me and my younger brother used to be so excited ,decorating room with lights,balloon,making lots of arty things making a gokul village where Krishna was born,mom used to make lots of Indian sweets and much more yummy dishes serving Krishna first then we had to eat.
Few days ago I had a car accident and I was very upset,initially thinking not to to celebrate then immediately I realized for such a materialistic thing just my car I am denying to celebrate such a divine day.By grace of him nothing happened to me given the fact for which I am completely insured,also I can easily afford expense as well.
Oh Krishna please forgive me for all known & unknown wrong thinking I have been going through.Oh I just can’t for the big day tom.
From Festivals to Jailhouse
Krishna’s name is finding its own way to spread to wider number of people.From music lovers to professionals and this one really amazed me spreading to jailhouse people.
Devotees of ISCKON performed Kirtan in front of criminals who are in jails for different crimes murder,theft and many more.Oh Krishna it is your mercy that you are allowing jailhouse people to have taste of unlimited joy through your name chanting letting them to be eager for you.Sometimes I feel Krishna that it is you decide who will relish the benefits of chanting your name.
Oh Krishna it is very easy to wish and work hard for money,status,power and lots of other things but to have wish of you is something not immediate as it is truth for which we need to qualify to understand.This qualification comes from eagerness about you. Just like maths is truth(not exposed) but still very prevalent,without it almost nothing can be done and in order to feel it enthusiasm to know becomes essential.
Oh Krishna you are the only reason for tears to love their existence.That’s why gopis were always in tears as it was in pure form of cheer.I don’t know when I will be at level but will always question tears are they satisfied with themselves?
We easily get negative when realizing someone you love can’t be with you but gopis despite knowing after leaving vridavan you can’t be with them they were unable to live without shedding tears in love that’s why you became debtor Krishna,you became debtor.
Oh Krishna loving you truly is nothing but love that’s why life intend shed its negativity through tears and get enlighten.So Krishna I request you to empower me to always question when tears are trying hard to make me realize they are not pure enough not pure enough.
