The Diary of a Pilgrim 2016 - Trying to Connect with You, Krishna!

By Sacinandana Swami

How would a fly describe its experience of suddenly being thrown into an ocean of nectar - life-giving nectar?

When I arrived in Vrindavana, I had this exact same experience and was likewise at a loss for words. What a pleasure it is to dive into the wonderful devotional atmosphere with the many sincere devotees who have surrendered their lives to the Lord. My heart softened as I viewed the stunning beauty of the landscape, a landscape that vibrates with Krishna-prema (devotional love for Krishna). The most relishable, however, were the many signs from Radha and Krishna by which They show everyone who comes to Vrindavan the exact things they need to know progress forward in their lives.

“Vrindavana seems to be determined to hold a mirror in front of your eyes – that shows you what you need to know,” commented one of my friends who lives in Vrindavan for quite some time.

Furthermore, in Vrindavana one does not only feel that Krishna exists, but one also feels that Krishna is willing to care for His devotees. Krishna often seems to appear from behind the curtain that hides Him from our vision. Even if one can’t clearly see Him – smiling face and all – one can always perceive His hands that move in such a way as to make the impossible possible, so that we stand in wonder, asking ourselves, “What more proof do I want that I have arrived in the kingdom of God?”
