Radhanath Swami On How is Vrindavan revealed?

In Srimad Bhagavatam we find many stories of devotees being challenged with insurmountable difficulties.

The more difficult the challenge was, the deeper they surrendered and Krishna revealed Himself in incredible ways to each of these devotees. Lord Caitanya taught that bhakti means […]

Mesmerizing Flute

When Lord Krishna plays upon His flute mountains melt and water becomes solid. Hearing the sweet sound of His flute, the trees blossom, cows and calves would become stunned, weeping in ecstasy, embracing Krishna in their hearts. When the gopas hear the sound of the flute they celebrate by playing and wrestling with Krishna. Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu explained that when the sound of the flute […]

Radhanath Swami On Reciprocation of Karuna Sindhu

In the beautiful prayer, he kåñëa karuëä–sindho déna–bandho jagat–pate, we begin by addressing Lord Krishna as karuëä–sindhu. ‘he’ means to cry out with all humility unto Lord Krishna just like a helpless baby crying out for his mother. In the Bhagavad Gita Lord Krishna explains, yadä yadä hi dharmasya glänir bhavati bhärata abhyutthänam adharmasya tadätmänaà […]
