I love bathing them, dressing them and offering them flowers and insence. Maybe it purifies me, I hope so. At least I get more attached to them, and that is an instruction from my Guru Maharaja.
"Be attached to Krishna"I heard in a lecture of Bhakti Vidya Purna Swami (BVPS) that a man can only go home to Krishna by being attached to Krishna. A woman can go back in three ways.
1. By being attached to her husband, which is attached to Krishna
2. By being attached to her child who is attached to Krishna
3. By her self being attached to Krishna
Good that there are some benefits from being in a woman's body >;-D
So if we daily worship Krishna by chanting his names, reading his pastimes and hearing about his glories, we will somehow be attached to Him. I pray to Krishna that I may fulfill this wonderful instruction from my Guru Maharaja.

Today I dressed Sri Sri Gaura Nitay in pink dresses.
Choosing the color of their dresses if hard...and not to talk about their jewelry... I have this dream that one day Krishna will let me dress Him on a big altar. A dream of being a pojari...well, if Krishna wants me to be one, He will arrange. Ultimately it's all up to Him.
We should be eager for His mercy. Wherever we might get some mercy, we should jump to take it. One day it's to late... Prabhupada said it takes one minute to be Krishna conscious. One minute. So if we really want it, it's there...Haribol!
I had a really nice time with my husband today. We talked a lot and we read the Mahabarata together... or that means, that he reads and I do handcraft while listening...(hihi!)...Such a blessing to had someone to share my sadhana with. It's said that when when devotees get marries it's arranged by Krishna <3
Just last week we had our ONE year anniversary... We invited our friends over and we had kirtan, I spoke a bit about mercy and my trip to Stockholm, and then we served a feast. Yudhisthira made this wonderful cake...
4 layers and homemade marcipan
Yudhi is a wonderful chef!
My husband also writes a blog. He writes poems about Krishna... check out my links, there you will find his page.
Every day I flip this deck of cards with some inspirational quotes that Srila Prabhupada has said... this is the quote for today:
"Sometimes when Radharani would get out, Krishna would attack Her, and when She would fall down - "Krishna, don't torture me in that way" - They would fall down, and Krishna would take the opportunity to kiss Her. Radharani was very pleased, but superficially Krishna was the creates rascal. Unless rascaldom is in Krishna, how would rascaldom be existent in the world? Our formula of God is that He is the source of everything. but His rascaldom is so nice that everyone worships His rascaldom."
