Sri Krishna Kathamrita Bindu issue 203

We just sent this issue out. There are some nice articles and pictures in it. Here is a brief description:

* "'Come to India'" -- His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada encourages devotees to as far as possible attend the yearly Gaura Purnima festival in Mayapur.

* "Sri Guru Reciprocates in All Rasas" -- Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Saraswati Thakur describes how Sri Guru manifests in different ways to different devotees.

* "How Krishna's Mercy Manifests" -- Srila Thakur Bhaktivinode explains three ways in which Krishna's mercy appears.

* "The Story of Mandavya Muni" -- Even being punished for a crime he did not commit did not disturb the meditation of this great Rishi. An anecdote with drawings from Mahabharat.

Bindu is a free service (we are trying to promote hari-katha!). It comes in pdf format twice a month. If you would like to subscribe write us at:
