The Giver of the Giver of the Gift

Obeisances to all the readers and contributors, and especially to Tripurari Maharaja, Citta Hari dasa, Dayal Govinda dasa, and Vrindaranya dasi! I just paid a brief first visit to Audarya. Others have posted their appreciation of its beauty and other qualities, and I wholeheartedly share their opinions. But what struck me the most relates to a statement (I think originally made by B. R. Sridhara Goswami) I heard mentioned by Maharaja in one of his recorded talks: "First the giver, then the gift." The sense being that we are to first worship Mahaprabhu as the giver of Krishna (or Krishna prema). One might quite naturally then ask, "But how should one worship Mahaprabhu?" My confident answer: Go to Audarya and see!


Hare Krishna,
