“Pure love for Krishna is eternally established in the hearts of living entities. It is not something to be gained from another source. When the heart is purified by hearing and chanting, the living entity naturally awakens.”
Let’s awaken our pure love for Krishna by hearing the transcendental stories together.
Looking forward to hearing from you.
