Willkommen im Forum

Liebe Besucher,
Liebe Devotees,

nach monatelanger intensiver und freudiger Arbeit an dieser Webseite zusammen mit unserer Webdesignerin bin ich sehr glücklich, dass nun alles soweit vollendet ist. Heute am 9.9.2016
ist zudem der Erscheinungstag von Shrimati Radharani, ein äußerst glücksverheißender Tag
für die Premiere unseres Forums und dieser Webseite als Ganzes.

Anstelle von Verhaltensregeln möchte ich einfach alle TeilnehmerInnen höflich darum bitten,
nett zueinander zu sein und auch bei Meinungsverschiedenheiten – die naturgemäß immer irgendwann bei Diskussionen auftreten werden – stets den guten Ton zu wahren.

Ich freue mich auf einen regen Austausch.

Euer Vedanta

Govardhan Puja (English)

athāha bhagavān gopān he ’mba tāta vrajaukasaḥ
yathopajoṣaṁ viśata giri-gartaṁ sa-go-dhanāḥ

Shri Bhagavan then addressed the cowherd community:
O Mother, O Father, O residents of Vraja, if you wish you may now come under this hill with your cows.“

SB 10.25.20
(Translation into English by HH Bhanu Swami)

Commentary by Sri Vishwanath Chakravarty Thakur:

Now you can all comfortably take shelter under Govardhana Hill.“

The Vrajavasis replied: „But how can our cowherd community, which includes many thousands of cows, calves, bulls and so on, fit under Govardhana which is only three miles across?“

Here is the answer:

Because Govardhana Hill was in ecstasy, being touched by Krishna's hand, it acquired inconceivable power and even felt the hundreds of deadly thunderbolts thrown upon its back by angry Indra to be offerings of soft, fragrant flowers. At times, Shri Govardhana was not even aware that the thunderbolts were striking. Govardhana expanded his form to thirty-two miles, so that all the inhabitants, cows, buffaloes and other animals could live comfortably beneath his shelter.

In Hari-vamsha, Shri Krishna Himself says:

trai-lokhyam apy utsahate, rakshitum kim punar vrajam.

Shri Govardhana can give shelter to all the three worlds, what to speak of the simple land of Vraja.“

According to Hari-vamsha, when Krishna lifted Govardhana, the mountain extended beyond the clouds. The deer, wild hogs and other animals and birds standing on the hill's flanks climbed up to Govardhana's peaks, which were now higher than the clouds, and thus even they did not experience the slightest distress.

Jai Shri Giri Govardhana!!
