No one goes hungry in Vrindavan

In December 2009, I was visiting a few temples in Vrindavan at around noon. While coming out of the Goswami Ghera of Sri Sri Radha Raman, I was in a dilemma about whether I should go to Sri Sri Radha Gokulananda temple or into Loi Bazaar to have something to eat because I was literally starving since morning and I had only had Krishna Balaram’s caranamrita…after a great hustling debate in my mind, I finally subdued the thought of going towards Loi Bazaar and decided to go to Sri Sri Radha Gokulananda.

Saveguarding my belongings from the sharp eyes of monkeys, I reached the temple just when the dieties were enjoying their Rajbhog Aarti. After the Aarti, the deities went for their afternoon rest and I prepared to set out of the complex. The instant I turned away from the temple, a great hand rested on my shoulder. I turned back again to find that the one who stopped me was Radha Gokulanand’s pujari with a plate full of Rajbhog prasadam in his other hand. He asked me to have some prasadam before leaving the temple premises. It came as a surprise since Krishna gave me what I was in need of, and that too without my even asking for it!! Then suddenly Srila Prabhupada’s quote that no one goes hungry in Krishna’ s Vrindavan crossed my mind.

I was amazed to experience how one’s desires are so quickly fulfilled in Sri Dham Vrindavan, and that too without one even asking for them!!

This was my Vrindavan experience..Sri Vrindavan Dham ki jai!!
