Our traveling mala arrived from Assam, fully acclimated to life in India
Time to Explore Vrindavan!
Our first journey together was to Radharaman, one of the oldest (constructed in 1542 AD) and most revered temple in Vrindavan. Here, we offered the mala at the altar of the deities for a blessing. After that we spent our days traveling together around Vrindavan, shopping in Loi Bazar, taking prasadam (blessed food) at Radha Kunj Ashram, and dancing and chanting to kirtan in The Krishna Balaram Temple (ISKCON).
Sharing Love with the Widows
The day before the mala was scheduled to go one her way, our ladies (destitute widows of Vrindavan working at Mahima Creations) all took hold and chanted a round of the Maha Mantra on her.
It was such a blessing! Once they realized the story of the mala, and how it was traveling around the world bringing love and light to all who touched it, they were over come with joy to be a part of it!
When it was time to say good-by and send the mala on her way, we blessed her with water from the Ganges and sprinkled a little bit of Vrindavan Dust in her soft bed of rose petals and sent her on her way back to England to continue her journey around the world.
Thanks and blessing to Helen of Chant Malas the love force behind the Traveling Mala!
