197. Mayapur 2010 : Mahaprasad

On another day, I bumped into Narasimha Kavaca Das (ISKCON Deity Worship Minister) form Melbourne who is also managing Mayapur Academy. Later in the evening that day, his wife and him invited me to their house for an evening dinner prasada. In addition to the lovely meal, I also gt the below mahaprasada !!

The Shawl !

The Shawl !

I was thrilled to get my very first shawl !! I have been thinking of having one ever since I saw how lovely they looked on Srila Prabhupad. And now I have one of my own. This lovely white wool shawl was offered at the altar of Sri Sri Radha-Madhava. I tried it out a few weeks ago when it was awfully cold during one of the mornings here in Melbourne. It felt good. But there must be a secret to keeping it on your body. It’s not like a sweater where you don’t have to worry about it falling off each time you take few steps. And it’s hard to do the dishes too, with the shawl on. But there is one thing I like about it besides keeping me really warm – it makes me feel all holy when I have it draped around me and over my head 🙂

Anyways, I have tried it only once and kept it away because of its special significance. A huge thanks to the deity worship minister for the wonderful and a very cherish able gift !


1. Thank You Session

Before I dive into the wonderful world of blogging, let me start thanking some people whose blogging experience kept me encouraged on the path of devotional service and connected with the Hare Krishnas, especially over the last 1 year.

1. Bloggers – All the wonderful posts of other Hare Krishna bloggers around the world who kept me on the path of devotion through their own tales and perspectives
2. Krishna.com – the busy warehouse people with all things Krishna. All beautifully displayed and answering questions so promptly. Yet to buy something from there
3. The Melbourne Hare Krishna Temple by Annirudha Prabhu & Devotees – makes me want to come to the temple again and again

Thank you all for your time and efforts !!
