Thu 30 Mar 2023

During the month Ashadh Vad 2 to Shravan Vad 2, the divine Murti of the Lord is seated upon elaborately decorated ceremonial swings (hindola). This year, this hindola festival commenced on Friday 15 July 2022.

"We all want God's mercy and divine happiness to remain ever blossoming within our souls. But for this to happen, we must cultivate a garden in our souls, a garden of mahimaa (glory); i.e. we must understand and appreciate God's magnificence. In this garden, we must plant huge trees of gnaan (knowledge); i.e. we must have knowledge of God's greatness. Only then can we tie swings, swings of prem (love) in our hearts, so that we can gently rock the ever-merciful Lord upon them, forever. And to that swing, we must tie a string, a string of sneh (affection), with which we can lovingly cradle our beloved Lord."
Jeevanpran Shree Muktajeevan Swamibapa.
