Gaura Purnima, the appearance of Lord Caitanya, is only a month away… But in our preschool class He has already appeared. Mother Krishna Priya has intrigued the students with His pastimes, from Advaita Acarya Prabhu’s calling, through the stealing of the Brahmana’s offerings. The thread and essence of them all is His special gift of the Holy Name and His mercy upon us, the conditioned souls. When Krishna Priya calls out “Haribol!” she sets the students into a lively kirtan, singing and dancing happily. The sound of the gong settles them back into “yogis in meditation”, ready to hear the next part of the story. More pastimes are in store for the next few weeks, such as Jarikanda Forest and the deliverance of Jagai and Madhai. How fortunate we are to have His transcendental pastimes narrated to us, almost as if they unfold before our own eyes.
