Prabhatsina

I wonder how you will be celebrating Krishnas' birthday? We are already singing chants with Krisnas' name. Getting ready for a blessed day and time ahead.

hi steve!
my daughter is cleaning  the small  idol of balgopal(little krishna).
It is  a day of worship  with  bhajans  of krishna till midnight.
Surdas had written some very good ones.
He was a great devotee  of  krishna, he was blind  and once he fell in a dry well.
he started asking for help from krishna.
A villager passed by and rescued him. He caught his hand and  didn't let  him go.
the  villager forcibly freed himself. And surdas said" you are getting  away from me knowing  well that I am weak. I will
call you strong only if  you can get out of  my heart".

Krishna's Pet Animals, Cows and Birds

Krishna and Balarama Milking the Cows

"Mother Yasoda would then address Nanda Maharaja, "See my dear son, whose eyes are white, who has a turban on His head, a wrapper on His body and leg bells which tinkle very sweetly on His feet. He is coming near, along with His surabhi calves, and just see how He is wandering upon the sacred land of Vrindavana!" Nectar of Devotion, Chapter 43"

The cows in Krishna's abode are also liberated souls. They are called surabhi cows. There are many popular pictures showing how Krishna loves the cows, how He embraces and kisses them. That passive relationship with Krishna is called santa. Their perfect happiness is achieved when Krishna comes and simply touches them." From the surabhi cows one can take as much milk as one needs, and one may milk these cows as many times as he desires. Science of Self-Realization, Chapter 8

These cows are the Lord's pet animals. Of the surabhi cows, all of whom are very dear to Lord Krishna, seven are said to be the most important. They are: Mangala, Pingala, Ganga, Pisangi, Manikastani, Hamsi and Vamsipriya. Padmagandha and Pisangaksa are Krishna's pet oxen. In addition to these pet surabhi cows, many other types of pets belong to Krishna and Radharani. Suranga is Krishna's pet deer and Dadhilobha is His pet monkey. Vyaghra andBhramaraka are Krishna's pet dogs. Kalasvana is His pet swan, Tandavika His pet peacock and Daksa and Vicaksana His pet parrots."Krishna always tends the cows. His name isGovinda, cowherd boy.

To become an animal of Krisna is a great, great fortune. It is not ordinary thing. Any associate of Krishna, either His cowherd boyfriends or calf or cows, or the Vrindavana trees, plants, flowers or water, they are all devotees of Krishna. They like to serve Krishna in different capacities. Somebody is serving Krishna as animal. Somebody is serving Krishna as fruits and flowers, as tree, as Yamuna water, or the beautiful cowherds men and damsels or Krishna's father and mother, so many with Krishna.

Krishna is not impersonal. So He has got so many lovers. Krishna also loves them. So Krishna's another name is pasu-pala, pasu-pala-pankaja. He is, mean, tender of the animals. Surabhir abhipalayantam. He takes pleasure in tending the cows, surabhi. These are surabhi cows, not these ordinary cows, surabhi cows. Surabhi cows means you can milk the cow as many times as you like and as much milk as you like. That is surabhi." SP. Lecture on SB. 06-26-74, Melbourne     

Radharani's (Radha) pet Animals Srimati Radharani also has pet surabhi cows, among whomSunada, Yamuna and Bahula are the most important, along with Tungi, Her chubby pet calf.Kakkhati is Her old pet monkey, Rangini is Her pet doe andCarucnadrika is Her pet cakori bird.Tundikeri is the name of Radharani's pet swan, who is fond of swimming in Radha-kunda. Madhuri is Radharani's pet elephant and Suksmadhi and Subha are Her two pet parrots.

The two parrots perfectly imitate Lalita-devi's playful jokes spoken to her master and mistress (Sri Sri Radha-Krishna). By this wonderful repetition the parrots astonish the gopis. (SSRKGD)"I think the drones that are buzzing all around You must have been Your devotees in their past lives. They cannot leave Your company because no one can be a better, more affectionate master than You. You are the supreme and original Personality of Godhead, and the drones are just trying to spread Your glories by chanting every moment. I think some of them must be great sages, devotees of Your Lordship, and they are disguising themselves in the form of drones because they are unable to give up Your company even for a moment. My dear brother, You are the supreme worshipable Godhead. Just see how the peacocksin great ecstasy are dancing before You. The deer, whose behavior is just like the gopis, are welcoming You with the same affection. And the cuckoos who are residing in this forest are receiving You with great joy, because they consider that Your appearance is so auspicious in their home.

Even though they are trees and animals, these residents of Vrndavana are glorifying You. They are prepared to welcome You to their best capacity, as is the practice of great souls in receiving another great soul at home. As for the land, it is so pious and fortunate that the footprints of Your lotus feet are marking its body." Krishna Book, Chapter 15

Afterthought.... to those who are in tune with God: Nature is in harmony with them.

Maybe she will give everyone eternal blessings as her name signifies. I am fortunate to be given a significant Indian name by Amma. How about you Prabhatsinha..... what does your name signify?

I am very impressed with  her.
She used  to have  khechri mudra in sleep  when she was  a kid.

Prabhat means morning.

Thank You Prabhat,

I slept in the country last nite and woke up early in the morning.
My thoughts were clear and easy to express. It was very, very quiet
as it often is in the very early hours and I could sit alone meditating with
out outside interference. I would suppose that your name refers to the peace of morning and
hers to spiritual practice.

Jai Ma
