Krishna...Krishna.... so echoed the soul stirring name of the eternal spirit called Krishna.
The echoes were so real and deep within that tears rolled out of the eyes and my soul got filled with 'bhakti' (devotion) for the Lord.
The place was Ujjain and I was at Sandipani Ashram - the place where lord Krishna received his education under his teacher named Sandipani. Located in the same premises is a place called 'Baithak' where Vallabhacharya gave discourses on Lord Krishna. When I entered the 'Baithak', the sweet sound of Krishna...Krishna.... started echoing in my very existence and I witnessed Krishna in my whole consciousness across the ages....! There was silence in the hall and there was this deep echo in my heart...!
Krishna... Krishnaa... O Lord, I offer you my salutations and my heart is overjoyed with your presence in my very being !
