photo by Shyam GopalMy experience in Vrindavan was all positive.

I was amazed by the society of monkeys that roam the town. I didn’t even mind (in fact it was a highlight of my visit) the monkey who took my glasses right off my face. At the time, I was quite worried because I have very poor vision and had no spare pair with me. However, in just a few minutes the monkey (smart as they are!) traded my glasses for food. It was such an unusual experience that I will remember it throughout my life. It always brings a laugh when I tell the story to friends.

The wonderful people I met at the ashram will always be remembered fondly. The quest for knowledge and learning and openness was a refreshing change from the norm.

The accommodation at the ashram was superb. I will definitely return if the opportunity ever presents itself again.

  1. The monkeys are natural and the oldest inhabitants of Vrindavan. It is quite unfair to say that they disturb us, rather we have disturbed their natural life in Vrindavan. It is very sad to see them in just bones. That’s because of us only. We should love them and provide as much food as possible to ensure that they survive in Vrindavan forever.
