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.

#Hindu Funerary Monuments:
Ordinary Hindus are cremated after their #death except for the saints. According to religious traditions, they are buried, and their shrines are called #Samadhi. The term Samadhi in #Hinduism also refers to an elevated state of mental awareness. 1/ Pic - Rajesh Avhad
Death by Samadhi usually involves inhumation rather than cremation on a pyre. However, samadhi memorials may or may not contain the remains of the deceased. This ritual occurs in 3 stages- taking Samadhi, the burial of the body, and site construction. 2/
The belief is that body of a saint or guru should be preserved as a symbol of sacred power. In this context, the #Hindu memorial is similar to the #Buddhist stupa, where relics of Buddhist teachers are buried and worshipped. 3/

1. Thread on varna and caste in Hinduism.

This is more complex subject. Afrer reading different opinions I am saying varna is not by birth. But at same time there in few cases there is a chance that one may be born in particular varna.

2. Gita clearly says Varna is based on guna and karma. Means conduct, charecter and action. Karma can be prarabdha past karma or kriya karma present action.

Gunas can be influenced to an extent by previous vasanas. Vasana means brain imprints.
3. So one may be born in particular varna due to their vasana. Like in previous birth irrespective of varna he led satvik means pure life then present birth he may be born as brahmin. But this is only one criteria among thousands. That doesn't mean he will be satvik in present.

"Ordered "Communist Manifesto", Got "Bhagavad Gita", Says Kolkata Man"

Ha, Ha..I have a similar story. I went from the citadel of Communism in India to the cradle of Communism, only to find Bhagavad Gita. I lost my heart to Krishna in Communist Russia.…
I became a Krishna devotee in Communist Russia. Thanks to #ISKCON & Srila Prabhupada! This is me in front of a Communist rally in Moscow. Image
This is me with @GennadyZyuganov - the head of the Communist Party of Russia since 1993.

By reading Bhagavad Gita, soon I realized that the communist philosophy is vague, but it can become perfect if they accept the conclusion of the Gita—that Krishna is the supreme proprietor. Image

For the sake of cheap entertainment, degradation of Hindu institutes & symbols must not be allowed.

ISKCON promotes universal brotherhood taking inspiration from Shri Krishna.

Equating #ISKCON goers with perverted porn addicts is extremely objectionable.
