The week before Gaura Purnima, I was praying to Krishna to please let me do some service, for I’d been completely absorbed with work and school. Five days before the event, I got a call from Mother Nataka. She was asking me if I can do some cake for Radharani’s club fund raising for the temple. The moment I heard her request, I just said yes right away. I didn’t even asked her for the details because I was just overwhelmed with joy that Krishna fulfilled my desire for doing devotional service. I may sounds exaggerated here, but having the chance to do some service (in any possible little ways) is something that I really value, for it rarely comes to me. With my crazy busy life of going to school and working at same time, doing my part as a wife, as a friend, and as a daughter, now you know why I’m thankful. I don’t even mind not having time for myself. I arrive a little late at the temple because I was having some last minute fixture for the cake (I also fallen asleep a bit while fasting, LOL), but when I got there, it was all worth it because the devotees were happy with the cake. Matajis from the Radharani club told me that they don’t want to cut the cake because it’s too cute to be eaten :). Anyway, they decided to auctioned the cake (as a whole piece) in order to raised more funds, and luckily an Indian couple bought it for a $100. I wasn’t there during the auction, so I missed the chance to asked the couple if I could have a tiny slice of the cake just to have a taste of it, LOL!
I don’t have money to donate for the temple, since I’m just a poor student. But, doing this somehow made me feel useful, and not just eating for free on Sundays. Thank you dear blue boy.
NOTE: I know my Lord Caitanya cartoon character doesn’t look at his best, but I promise to make him better next time.
Radhe Syam with their ever magnanimous presence.
Sri Sri Gaura Nitai! The cutest ever.
Jaya Nrsimhadeva! I just love His loving eyes.
He build a house in which the whole world can leave. Jaya Prabhupada!
