A Prayer to Mother Ganges


Oh, enigmatic one,

Non-different from the Lord,
Even the breeze that you touch,
Purifies one and all.


Oh, dear Mother,

Your touch soft and silken,
Gushing love of your waters,
Comforts your hapless children.


Oh, Goddess Ganga,

Worshippable for every soul,
Accept the lamps of our hearts,
Pray take us to Krishna's abode.

The Bandwagon of Molten Gold

Hare Krishna! Here's something about the name of this site: The Bandwagon of Molten Gold. According to an entry in dictionary.com, "bandwagon" means "a usually large and ornately decorated wagon for carrying a musical band while it is playing...". Another meaning given is "a movement that by its mass appeal or strength readily attracts many followers". So, I thought that Srila Prabhupada's ISKCON is definitely a huge bandwagon that carries the "brihad mridangam" (huge mridangam) that produces the holiest sound vibrations of the teachings of the Gaudiya Vaishnav Sampradaya in the form of Srila Prabhupada's words! And surely, it is attracting, and will continue to attract unlimited followers who will take the Holy name of Gauranga to every town and village on earth by simply "Chanting! Dancing! and Feasting!" And ofcourse, the molten gold part comes from the complexion of Lord Shri GaurSundar!
