Priya Kund is located in Barsana, also known as Peeli Pokhar (yellowish pond).

According to the legends, once Radharani along with other Gopis went to Nandgaon. There she met Yashoda, foster mother of Lord Krishna.
She was so influenced by Radha's exquisite beauty and cultured behavior that she desired Radha to become her daughter-in-law. Deeply lost in her thoughts, Yashoda Ji applied some turmeric paste onto the hands of Radharani.
According to the rituals, turmeric paste is usually applied by the mother-in-law to her would-be daughter-in-law. When she returned to her father’s house in Barsana, she got embarrassed after observing her yellow hands.

As the guru sat in lotus posture on a wooden bench with a screen behind him, Ganga Dhar Babu arrived with his equipment. Taking every precaution for success, he greedily exposed twelve plates. On each one he soon found the imprint of the wooden bench
and screen, but once again the master’s form was missing.
With tears and shattered pride, Ganga Dhar Babu sought out his guru. It was many hours before Lahiri Mahasaya broke his silence with a pregnant comment:

“I am Spirit. Can your camera reflect the omnipresent
Invisible?”

“I see it cannot! But, Holy Sir, I lovingly desire a picture of your bodily temple. My vision has been narrow; until today I did not realize that in you the Spirit fully dwells.”

“Come, then, tomorrow morning. I will pose for you.”

REFLECTIONS ON FORGIVENESS // FORGIVENESS OF SELF // THE GIFT OF PEACE OF MIND // JOHN 14:27

Happy Sunday, beloved children of God! 🌅☀️
As we wrap up our series on “Forgiveness of Self”, we find ourselves in John 14.
John 14 deals with the well known truth of Jesus being “the way, the truth, and the life.” Internalizing this truth has far-reaching impact in the life of a believer.
Our focus text comes to us from verse 27. Here, Jesus bestows on us, His magnificent GIFT OF PEACE OF MIND. He tells us that though He must physically depart the Earth, He’ll LEAVE HIS OWN PEACE with us.

Happy Saturday, beloved family! I hope your weekend has been off to an excellent start! 🌅☀️❤️
Our focus text for today, comes to us from Romans chapter 8, which focuses on life in the Spirit.

In verse 1, we have THE blessed assurance from God, that there is indeed NO CONDEMNATION FOR THOSE WHO ARE IN CHRIST JESUS.
To be “in Christ Jesus” means that He dwells within us, & us within Him. We are ONE.
So, by sending His own son, Jesus Christ, to die for our sins, God made sure that there is NO CONDEMNATION for us.

REFLECTIONS ON FORGIVENESS // FORGIVENESS OF SELF // A STEADFAST LOVE, A COVENANT OF PEACE // ISAIAH 54:10

Happy Wednesday, beloved children of The Most High God. 🌅☀️❤️ Image
Today’s focus text comes to us from the book of Isaiah, chapter 54. Isaiah 54 focuses largely on God’s everlasting love for ALL of His people & how this love HEALS ALL our sorrows. This, however, hinges on our CHOICE to abide in Him, on HIS terms, & not on our own.
Isaiah 54:10 paints a glorious picture of God’s steadfast love for us! 😍
Can you imagine mountains departing & hills being removed? What a sight that would be! How intense would that be?
Is it even likely that such a thing could happen?

Shakti Mantras are like an Atomic Bomb

They are extremely powerful

Why We cannot see god with our eyes?

1/n
We cannot see the Supreme Lord with our materialistic eyes - eyes of lust. When we will submit to Him, surrender to Him, then by His grace, we can see Him, with spiritual devotional eyes. The Supreme Lord can be seen only

By the eyes of #devotion to those who have the aptitude to serve Him. When the Supreme Sri Krishna was present in Dvapara Yuga, He could not be recognized by Kans, Jarasandh etc.

When the Supreme Lord appeared as Ram, He also could not be recognized by all. Hiranyakashyap,
