My brother, Christian, recently bought a block of land which we subdivided at the front of our property at Hare Krishna Valley to facilitate more people coming to live there. Last week the digging of the foundation began. He is planning to self build, and intends to be living at Hare Krishna Valley in 12 months time.
A friend of ours, Anandini, hand carved a beautiful sign which has been placed at the front of my house. The sign reads “Sri Govardhana Seva Ashrama”, which means the place where Sri Govardhana is served. Govardhana hill is the mountain which was lifted by Krishna’s own hand 5000 years ago, and everyday I perform worship of one of the stones from this hill as part of my spiritual practice.
We look forward to speaking to you again next week.
Until then, I remain yours in the service of Srila Prabhupada.
