What's Inside the March/April Issue of BTG
Posted March 11, 2004
In our last issue, we ran the story of a group of Hare Krishna youths touring North America by bus. This time we present a Hare Krishna couple traversing America at a much slower pace--on a horse-drawn wagon. So far they've covered twelve hundred miles on their way to Mexico and beyond, giving out the teachings of Lord Krishna in hundreds of towns along the way.
On the other side of the world, Adbhuta Hari Dasa reports on a place where Krishna spoke His teachings fifty centuries ago just before leaving this world. In "The Song Goes Ever On," Satyaraja Dasa gives us a summary of those teachings and tells us about Uddhava, the intimate devotee to whom Lord Krishna spoke them.
Krishna's extraordinary departure from the earth is one of His many divine acts, the most endearing of which took place in Vrindavana, India. In "A Vrindavana Tour in Northern Ireland," we learn of how devotees are creating reminders of the holy sites of Vrindavana thousands of miles away. This issue coincides with the anniversary of Lord Krishna's appearance as Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu. Amala-bhakta Dasa relates some of Caitanya Mahaprabhu's feats in "The Wonders of Lord Caitanya."
