I was sitting outside and honoring Prasadam from Sri Sri Radha Madan Mohan and all of a sudden there was a sour smell, my wife laughed when she saw me make a face.That is the smell of cow dung.She was laughing even more, because I had made a face, of what is that obnoxious…

Nectar about Lord Vamanadev !

Lord Vamanadeve is best worshipped by full Nirjala fasting as explained in Hari Bhakti Vilasa, and chanting 64 rounds, and reading the pastimes in Srimad Bhagavatam in relation to Him
