Krishna Leela

 Bala Krishna is born!!!

Early morning after Krishna's birth (we all were still tired as we went to bed only at 4 am), we all met in the tent for a Yagna 

Yagna was started by Swami VishwaKeshava while Swami Vishwananda was sitting beside meditating. He performed the final rounds later on and finished with Aarti. 

In the afternoon there was a talk about Lord Krishna and the Bhagavad Gita on the program. 
We were all waiting in the tent until finally Swami Vishwananda came, opened the Bhagavad Gita, and then something unexpected happened:

Swamiji asked: "Who has read the Bhagavad Gita?"

- silence - some lonely hands raised up...

next question: "Who knows about Krishna's life?"

- once more only a few hands...

So, Swamiji closed the Bhagavad Gita and said:
"You really bring me now into a dilemma! If you don't have the basic knowledge about Krishna's life, what should I tell you now? Please, all of you who know about Krishna's life, come with me up into the temple - there I will talk about the deeper meaning of Chapter 10 of the Bhagavad Gita!"

Total silence - Swamiji went! And a few went also - and then some more...

In the end the temple was quite full and Swamiji asked some questions to some people - any wrong answers were welcomed with a sharp "out!" from Swamiji.

What Swami then told about the deeper meaning of the verses of the Chapter 10 (Vibuthi Yoga) - was  full of wisdom and we got once more a little glimpse of God's universe and all the worlds inside it.
(In his mercy Swamiji did invite all the people to come in and listen eventually)

Late at night we had our plays in the tent ... about some episodes in Krishna's life like: the Gopis feeding Krishna, and dancing with him... 

Parvati and Shiva showed up also to the dancing party, ... they had an issue with each another and where fighting - in Italian!

And last but not least we took Swamiji on a swing which we installed secretly before - and from this moment on there started a very happy special "Krishna Leela" with dancing arround him and singing a lot of Bhajans! 

Everybody was dancing and was happy till late, late night!
