Sri Sri Radha Kalachandji
Posted August 23, 2007
What a great story by Pandava Vijaya das about Sri Sri Radha Kalacandji. I was there in Dallas when Srila Prabhupada brought the Deities in a trailer to the Temple. We were all so excited. We were worshipping Gaura Nitai established in a painting, and were anxious about the elevated standards we were about to engage in. As I was measuring Lord Kalacandji for His clothing, I looked up at His face. He had a small white line under His chin. As I looked at the line and followed it around, it actually encircled his whole face. Kalacandji--dark moon face--is indeed an appropriate name. Jaya Prabhupada!
Also, I was told interesting story about the Deities
many years later by Govardana das, the Temple
president in Detroit at that time. The four Deities
came to Detroit first--a set for Detroit and another
for Dallas. He liked the Radharani Deity who was to be
sent to Dallas better, so he switched them. Shhh,
don't tell anyone.
