BHAGAWAD GITA-foundation is exceedingly strong


In the United States, a Christian had invited Swami Vivekananda to his home with the intention to mock the Swami's religiosity. He welcomed the Swami at home and showed the latter his book rack. He pointed towards a pile of books which were placed in such a way that the Bhagavad Githa was placed at the bottom of the pile, followed by other religious books and the Bible was placed at the top of the pile.

He then questioned the Swami, "I usually do my reading here. Don't you like the way I arranged my books?"

The Swami replied, "I sure do. The books are very organized and arranged neatly. The ones on the top stand firmly because the foundation is exceedingly strong."

Goloka Vrindabvan

When Krishna was a little boy of five, his father, Nanda, took him to the field where the cattle were grazing. Krishna wanted to spring a surprise on his father, so he created a severe thunderstorm. It began to rain heavily and the trees were tossing wildly.Although Krishna was responsible for the storm, he pretended that he knew nothing. He started crying and screaming, and he clung to his father for Protection. Nanda was trying desperately to protect his child and also the cattle. He found that he could not manage to do the two things simultaneously, and so he was in a terrible predicament. All of a sudden, a most beautiful woman appeared. Nanda was very relieved to see this unknown woman who had come at such a crucial moment. “Would you kindly take care of my child?” he asked. “I must take the cattle home now. Then I will come back. I am sure that you will be able to protect my son.”“Do not worry.
                        I will definitely take good care of your child,” the woman assured Nanda. Nanda departed for home with the frightened cattle. When Krishna and the woman were alone together, Krishna did something extraordinary. He created a most enchanting scene and took the form of a youth. This youth was dark-skinned; he wore an orange cloth and on his forehead there was a peacock feather. In his hands, he held a flute which he was playing so hauntingly. Krishna looked at the woman and asked her, “Do you remember this Scene, when we were in Goloka Vrindabvan(Spiritual World),The unknown woman was Radha(Identification Revealed by Garga Rishi), who was Krishna’s dearest beloved. Radha replied, “I do remember this incident. It is very vivid to me.” Krishna was showing Radha a scene from their life together in Goloka Vrindabvan(Spiritual World)before they took incarnation on earth.
                       He wanted to remind Radha of their eternal relationship. At that moment, there appeared Brahma, the Creator. For 60,000 years he had been praying to the Highest only to have a glimpse of Radha. In his meditation, he had seen Krishna and Radha together on earth and he was deeply moved. So he came personally to see Radha, who was the embodiment of the Universal Force.Then Brahmaji performed their marriage as a pandit. Brahmā performed the wedding-ceremony of Lord Hari and Śrī Rādhikā.

                             Then, happy and humbly bowing down, Brahmā left for his own home.The time was fast approaching for Krishna’s father to come and take his son home,Krishna became a little child again. He started crying pitifully for his father to come and claim him. After some time, Nanda had still not appeared and Radha became very worried. She was wondering what to do when she heard a voice telling her to take the child to Nanda’s house.Radha was so sad and miserable that she had to return Krishna to his parents after being reunited with him on earth. She was afraid that she would not be able to see him anymore. But the voice told her, “Take the child back to Nanda and Yashoda. If you listen to me, I assure you that you will be able to go and see your Lord Krishna every evening. You will meet him and he will play his flute for you. A part of your heart will always remain with him.” Garga Samhita which describes marriage between radha and krishna was composed by Garga Muni,the family priest of family of Nanda, (the foster-father of Krishna) He named Krishna as "Krishna" after receiving the name by meditation.

Every sister gets brother like shri krishna...

In Mahabharata only one character had lived his life in full – Krishna. We never saw his eyes wet at any stage of his life. Instead Mahabharata says ‘he smiled’. When he faced problems from his formidable enemies, when he lost his own people, his countenance never faded. When Gandhari, from her heart wrenching pain cursed him, he smiled. When he witnessed the annihilation of his own family before his very eyes, he smiled. Like Rama he also suffered immensely in his life, but he always stood like a rock. And Rama wailed throughout his life. In their approach to life, one may say, Rama and Yudhishtira were idealists. Krishna, who saw the truth of life, was realistic and pragmatic. Interesting are these characters and their outlook towards life.

He was the true brother who supported his sister when her own husbands couldn't protect her...hope every sister gets brother like shri krishna...

Jai shrikrishna..


                                       THE GREATNESS OF RADHA'S LOVE FOR KRISHNA

It is said in the ‘Chaitanya Charitramrita’ and narrated by Shri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu that once Shri Krishna was crying for a Gopi who was unable to come to Krishna as she had household chores. Radha was watching all this. Meanwhile she personally went to the Gopikas house and then fell on her feet and said,” My Krishna is crying for you.Please go and visit him once. If you do so,I would become your Dasi eternally.”

Through her example, Radha showed the world the meaning of true love and to what extent one has to sacrifice to really learn to love.

Radha is indeed the greatest lover of all times. Hundred and thousand times greater.That’s why she was so dear to Shri Krishna.

Who in this world would be able to sacrifice to the extent Radha did without a tinge of Jealousy?

No one.

But Radha and devotees like her can only realize the true meaning of love.

Therefore even today on devotees lips lives "Radhe Radhe"…
