  1. Haribol, dear devotees. I'd like to share with you the link to my book trailer for 'Follow the Cowherd Boy'. With the help of a friend I produced it and uploaded it to my youtube account. Let me know what you think of it. Here's the link: Haribol! Jai Mirabai! Jai
  2. Haribol, Amleshji. Thanks for your reminder of the beauty of her words. Jai
  3. Haribol! Apologies for not posting sooner. I haven't been on the audarya forum for a long time. I do have certain lines from Mira's poems in the book to illustrate what was happening to her in her life at the time of writing those poems and singing them with the devotees. I didn't feel worthy or qualified to completely translate the poems completely so I composed some lines myself to illustrate what I wanted to say about her words and how she touched people. I hope you find my work worthy. Please forgive any mistakes. Jai PS: if you haven't ordered the book yet then you can get it online at http://www.amazon.com/Follow-Cowherd-Boy-J-Joshi/dp/1412086264/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1240630218&sr=8-1 or from my publisher at http://www.trafford.com/4dcgi/dosearch You can also order it instore at Borders, Waldenbooks, Hastings, or Barnes & Noble. The ISBN number is 1412086264. Jai Shri Krishna, Jai Mirabai!
  4. Haribol! The Director of the Bauu Institute and Press posted a review of Follow the Cowherd Boy last week. The link is: <http://newgreatbooks.blogspot.com/2008/06/modern-take-on-classical-indian-story.html> I was honoured. Jai Shri Krishna! Jai Mirabai! Jai
  5. In the Mahabharat when Draupadi's sons were killed in their sleep by Ashwatama, Draupadi wept for them. She said that she did not grieve because they died but because they died in their sleep and thus could not remember Krishna at their last moment. Jai
  6. No no, Mataji. Please don't say that. I'm not worthy of that. It is Krishna and Mirabai who deserve the obeisance as it is they who are entering into people's lives and consciousness and inspiring love. Jai Mirabai! Jai Shri Krishna!
  7. I saw this documentary on the history channel too. It was amazing and the documentary divers themselves were convinced that those structures were man-made. One of them said that it was so eerie, there was just no way those structures were naturally formed. And they were the ones who discovered the carving of the headress. It looks like a spectacular location. It made me want to learn diving even though I've never yet had the inclination. Haribol! Jai
  8. Because she loves him. She is selfless and devoted and therefore Krishna loves her the same way. Jai
  9. Haribol! I just recieved the most wonderful email from a reader. This is an excerpt: "I have never studied much about the Hindu religion but now I've had a taste of Krishna I will never forget. Thank you!" How merciful is Krishna that he inspired this person to read about Mira and thus plant the seeds of a desire for him? My heart is feels so full today. Jai
  10. Haribol! I completed my Heartland tour a couple of weeks ago and have been back home resting and getting back into a routine at home. I'm also working on my next book but that is slow going so I can't say much. What was exciting about this last tour, and there were many exciting things, was that I generated interest from the local tv news. I made the evening news in North Dakota and also filmed a PBS program called Media Meet that will air in the Great Lakes region on July 12th. That was a great filming as the presenter Sonya Chrisman asked me questions about the book and the topic of Hinduism and Women. We discussed many issues that you will find interesting and I'll give details about the airing of the program closer to the time. I met so many interesting people and was able to get darshan at some of the temples along the way too. Krishna is very merciful towards me and I know I don't deserve it. Haribol! Jai
  11. I believe it was Vidur Maharaj who said that we should speak the truth but speak the sweet truth. Just because we can and should speak the truth, that doesn't mean we should deliberately try to hurt or offend others. Speech is precious, "Vani" is said to be Mother Saraswati herself. We should therefore not offend her by using her indelicately. Jai
  12. This is the list of my next events. I'll be on tour in the heartland states for about 6 weeks.

Krishna has been kind enough to allow me to meet his devotees in so many parts of the country, I've been blessed. Haribol! Jai
  13. Hari Haribol! Kheer mohans sound lovely! I'm drooling as we speak. Jai
  14. Thanks for your encouragement. I will try my best to relate the story so that the children feel the true emotions of the katha. Storytelling is a great joy for me and I'm humbled that I get the chance to tell these stories. Haribol! Jai
  15. My favourite sweets are gulab jamun and shrikand. So rich and yummy! Indulekhadasi Mataji, what are kheer mohans? I've Gujarati and have never heard of them. Jai
  16. As I recall, when Surya Dev gave Kunti his baby who later became known as Karna, she protested and said that she couldn't have a child as she was unmarried. He told her that her virginity would remain intact and her chastity would never be doubted. Jai Kunti Maharani! Jai
  17. Haribol, Mataji! I was contacted by one of the teachers of that school to give a talk on the culture of India so I'll be speaking of India's history, beliefs, dress, food. I"ll also being explaining to the children that it's important to be open minded and curious about other cultures because they have much to teach us. I'm going to end it with a story from the Ramayan to give the talk a spiritual feel and also heighten their interest in the stories and culture of India. I've done several storytelling sessions with kids and they love the story of Rama and Sita's wedding. Do you have any advice for me? I would be happy to hear any suggestions. Haribol! Jai
  18. Haribol! I just wanted to post the next couple of events I'll be doing. The first is a book signing and the second is a talk with a kids in a school in Texas. I'm really looking forward to the school event as I always have fun with the kids. Thursday February 21st, Book signing at Borders, Morrocroft Village Shopping Center, Charlotte NC 28211, 12-3pm. Thursday March 6th, India Culture talk with 1st-4th grader at The Fulton School, Heath TX, 11am-12noon. I'll soon be posting a list of my next major tour but am still working on that. I'm waiting to confirm a few dates before I post the list. If anyone is in the Charlotte NC area while I'm there then please come along and meet me. I love to meet with devotee's along my travels! Krishna is most kind to me that he gives me these opportunities. Haribol! Jai Shri Krishna! Jai
  19. What could be more successful that to be in Krishna's presense regularly? To have him save her sons when he didn't save the sons of his own mother Devki? To have him protect her daughter-in-law Draupadi when no one else would? Kunti's sons were beloved to Krishna, who always stood by their side and helped them solve their problems. Even Karna, who stood on evil Duryodhana's side, was treated affectionately by Krishna. Kunti overcame great hardship and pain and still her heart remained pure with love of Krishna. That's success. Haribol! Jai Kunti Maharani! Jai
  20. Rich or poor, I don't like rasgoolas but I love Gulab Jamun. I don't like the plasticy texture of rasgoolas and often think about the lovely saag panir that could have been made if someone hadn't used the panir in the rasgoolas, hehe. I much prefer the softness of gulab jamun and how it melts in the mouth, hmmmm. Haribol! Jai
  21. Theist, you're right. The Iskcon temple in Utah is so beautiful. When I saw the gorgeous deities I was struck dumb and so thankful that I'd had a chance to take darshan there. The temple there has developed a truly awesome relationship with the local people and it is because they have focused on the similarities between the two faiths, not the differences. That's a much more constructive way of relating to people. I met a Mormon lady while traveling in Atlanta. We had a two hour long conversation about the similarities in our beliefs and she ended up telling me things she never told others because she felt that I would understand. We parted by saying that we respected each other's beliefs and wished the best for each other. I did a couple of book signings in Utah (my novel is based on the life story of Mirabai) and sold many books there. I had a great time meeting those people and discussing philosophy with them. We had some Jehovah's Witnesses come to our house and my father answered the door. I was listening from my bedroom upstairs and groaned when I heard the man ask my father "have you heard of the Kingdom of God?" My father replied: "Yes, it's called Ram Rajya." The man stuttered and asked what that meant so my father explained who Lord Ram was and why he came to earth. He explained that if we were all devotees and lived lives of Bhakti then our time on this earth would become Rama Rajya and the Lord would be pleased. Then my father ended by saying "Jai Shri Rama!" The Jehovah's witness was stunned and asked what that meant. My father said that it meant "Praise Lord Rama!" and taught the man how to correctly pronounce the words. The man thanked my father for explaining all of that and left us saying "Jai Shri Rama". Ancient Mariner, I think that the best way is for you to be honest about what you believe and thank them for showing you their literature. Who knows, maybe Krishna led them to you so that they could learn a little about Him through you. Haribol! Jai
  22. The problem, redsox, is that you are equating wealth with money. Wealth (or fortune) is not money. Wealth is Bhakti. That is what Radharani is and what Lakshmi is too. To equate Lakshmi with money is to insult her. Material wealth is one aspect of her strength but if misused, it takes us away from Krishna. To see Lakshmi as money is to be drowning in maya because then we want to control Lakshmi and exploit her. We want to abuse her for our own enjoyment. This was the major mistake that Ravana made. He wanted to abuse and exploit Sita, who is Lakshmi incarnate, when he should have served her as his mother instead. By contrast, Janak (Sita's father) gave her to Rama, who is Vishnu. In other words, he gave his wealth, his bhakti, to Rama and because he did that, he achieved a close relationship of love with Rama. If you have material wealth then it should be used in the service of Krishna, this is the proper use of material Lakshmi and you will please her if you do this. This is the equivalent of giving your daughter in marriage to Vishnu, as Janak did. But if you exploit her for your own enjoyment then she will give you only pain and distress in the form of maya as she did with Ravana. I hope this helps with your question. Jai
  23. What a sad and shocking event. I'm sorry for her family and hope that Krishna eases their grief. The only positive is that she passed on the holy earth of Vrindavan, where Radharani showers devotees with blessings and love. Jai Shri Krishna! Jai
  24. Haribol Indulekadasi. Thanks for the tip. I was thinking of telling the story of Rama's wedding, the storytelling session isn't set up yet but I might work on sorting that out this winter. I'm doing a talk in Berea KY in a couple of weeks so I'm excited about that. I've fallen in love with public speaking and I'm really grateful Krishna gave me the opportunity to do this through my book marketing because otherwise I would never have known how enjoyable public speaking it. Haribol! Jai
