Welcome to Notes From New Goloka

Welcome to notes from New Goloka.
I'm hoping to get this off the ground and post more October news soon. Today I'm taking the kids to the State Fair. Kundalata will come with us. We've never been before so looking forward to it and kids are really excited.
October 8 we went to Festival of India at Prabhupada Village. Although the
weather was a bit chilly starting out the kids had fun. There were a few
dances- this very young girl Krishnaya she is only 7 performed a Bharat
Natyam solo with such precision. She is a beautiful devoted young girl that
appears to be from a heavenly planet.
The new temple in Sandy Ridge is coming along nicely. They will have a nice
marble floor that still needs to be installed. Let's see there was a play
about a man who was carrying a very heavy load and the Lord appeared before
him and granted him a boon. The man was struggling with the huge heavy load
dropping it. He could have asked the Lord for anything, but he asked that
the Lord please help him by placing this heavy load back onto his shoulder.
This shows the foolishness of the living entity by asking the Lord for
material things- which will only be a big burden. Rather we should aspire
for our eternal blissful constitional position. The kids favorite part was
the Ramayana puppet show at which point the welcoming bright sun burst
through the clouds warming everyone.
Prabhupada Village is on my acres (350?) of land and many disciple of HDG Srila Prabhupada reside there. It is also the home of the Bhaktivedanta Arhcives.
