Happy Radhastami!

Here's some nectar from the Nectar of Devotion Because Krsna is the Supreme Personality of Godhead, it is very difficult to approach Him. But the devotees, taking advantage of His compassionate nature, which is represented by Radharani, always pray to Radharani for Krsna's compassion. The behavior of the confidential friends of Krsna is described by a friend of Radharani who told Radharani, "My dear graceful Radharani,...

He says, "There is no one more dear to me than he that distributes my message of Bhagavad Gita." So what better birthday present is there than to do what is most pleasing to Him. Of course...
