Krishna is the sweetest honey we could ever tasted, the sweetest ladhu we could ever enjoy and the sweetest icing on the cake we’ve ever crave for. In short He is sweetness personified that sometimes we become selfish not to share Him with others 🙂 Since were talking about sweetness here, I also missed the sweet vaisnava association back in the Philippines (I’m sorry I’m getting sentimental again), thats why I decided to make a short video of it. Forgive me if the quality is not that good, I’ll edit it later.

Translation:

Sweet are Your lips, sweet is Your face, sweet are Your eyes, sweet is Your smile, sweet is Your heart, sweet is Your gait, O Lord of Mathura, everything about You is sweet.

Sweet are Your words, sweet is Your story, sweet are Your garments, sweet is Your presence, sweet are Your movements, sweet are Your roaming, O Lord of Mathura, everything about You is sweet.

Sweet is Your flute, sweet is the dust of Your feet, sweet are Your hands, sweet are Your feet, sweet is Your dance, sweet is Your friendship, O Lord of Mathura, everything about You is sweet.

Sweet is Your song, what is drunk by You is sweet, what is eaten by You is sweet, and sweet is Your sleep. Sweet is Your form, sweet is the mark on Your forehead, O Lord of Mathura,
everything about You is sweet.

Sweet are Your works, sweet is Your conquest, sweet is Your theft, sweet is Your remembrance, sweet are Your offerings, sweet is Your cure, O Lord of Mathura, everything about You is sweet.

Sweet is Your murmuring, sweet is Your garland, sweet is the Yamuna River, sweet are the waves, sweet is the water, sweet is the lotus flower, O Lord of Mathura, everything about You is sweet.

Sweet are the Gopis, sweet is Your divine sporting, sweet is Your union, sweet are Your experiences, what You behold is sweet, sweet are Your left overs, O Lord of Mathura, everything about You is sweet.

Sweet are the Gopas, sweet are the cows, sweet are the pearls around Your neck, sweet is Your creation, sweet are Your victories, sweet are Your jokes, O Lord of Mathura, everything about You is sweet.

Harinam in the Philippines is really special,because every time we have a harinam, the peoples attention to hear the holy name is preciously indestructible. As the only Roman Catholic country all over South-East Asia and the largest consumer of oink oink,you know pig (pork), being a Hare Krishna devotee there is like a needle in a haystack! But because of Lord Caitanya’s mercy were still able to spread the jeweled glory of the holy name!Jaya Sankirtan!!!
