Where it touches Krsna's red lotus palm, it looks like a ruby stick, and where it touches Krsna's blue lotus cheek it looks like a sapphire. Look ! In this way Krsna's flute looks like these…

Adi Lila Chapter Three

Even before He took his birth, the Lord propagated the chanting of His holy name.

Streams of people went for their bath in the Ganga at the time of the eclipse and all the way they chanted the Lord's name.

Some, who from their birth never once uttered the Lord's name, now chanted that name on their way to the Ganga.

The sound of chanting emanated from every direction and the Supreme Lord, the best of the brahmins, smiled to…
