Kartik Diary 1

Yavat and Ter Kadambha

Dear Devotees
Jay Sri Radhe!

Today's parikrama was perhaps the best so far. It took us to Yavat and Ter Kadambha. Yavat is the place where Srimati Radharani stayed 6 month of the year. The other 6 month she spend in Varshana, her birth place. Many intimate pastimes took place here and Srimati Radharani and her gopi friends used to regularly walk from Yavat to Nandagram, Lord Krishna's place of birth. She walked daily to Nandagram to cook for Krishna because she had received a boon from Durvasa Muni that whoever ate her cooking would never fall ill. Therefore mother Yashoda obliged her to cook for her Lala.

On the way to Nandagram the gopis would pass Ter Kadambha where Krishna would herd the cows. Many nectarian exchanges took place there.

Ter Kadambha is such a peaceful and transcendental place that makes it hard to leave. It is also the place where Rupa Gosvami had his bhajan kutir. On this spot he had the darshan of Srimati Radharani who brought him some sweet rice to offer to Sanatan.

Rupa Goswami has Darshan of Srimati Radharani

Tomorrow is the disappearance day of Narottama das Thakura and we will perform bhajans and hear about his glories at his samadhi at Radha Gokulananda temple.

Praying for the Lord's mercy upon all of you,

With love and affection,

Your servant in the service of Srila Prabhupada,

Gauranga Sundara Das
