The Desire Trees of Vrindavan / Деревья желаний Вриндавана
Дорогие ученики, больше часа катхи о Калпа-врикшах, деревьях желаний Вриндавана!
Dear disciples: This is a very interesting lecture on the glories of the Kalpa Vriksa trees in Vrindavan. Over an hour of katha about Desire Trees!
Varsana is the sacred home of Srimati Radharani where she lived with her parents during the early years of Her life. Along with her gopi maidservants Radharani would often traverse the wooded forests of Varsana as she and her friends went to the market to sell their milk products. Sometimes they would meet their beloved Krsna along the way. One of Radharani’s favorite forests still exists to this very day with ancient “desire trees” dotting the landscape. Our parikrama party had the good fortune to visit Varsana and that mystic forest, where we hugged the trees as per tradition and begged one day to become eternal servants of the Divine Couple.
