Jai Radhey! The samskar continues with hundreds of people devoted to Sri Radhakund joyfully performing seva! There is a very wonderful, festive mood in the air as usual. I feel so fortunate to be here taking part in serving Sri Sri Radhakund. If you look closely in some of the photos you will see four bamboo poles in the center of the kund. These are marking the boundry of kankan kunda, the place where Radhika began digging the kunda with one of her bracelets. People are circumambulating this area in great ecstasy!

Radha and Krishna bathe and sport in the lakes of Brindavan and play with the birds and other creatures. In the forests they happily decorate themselves by picking the many varieties of flowers found on the trees and creepers. Who would not like to serve the supreme transcendental abode of Sri Brindavan?
