WELCOME  Chapter twenty-five of the Srimad-Bhagavatam’s Tenth Canto relates one of the most famous of Lord Krshna’s earthly pastimes – His holding up Govardhana Hill for seven days to protect the residents of Vrindavan from a deluge. In the next chapter, titled “Wonderful Krishna,” the village cowherd men express their amazement at Krishna, especially His power to attract the love of everyone in Vrindavan.

Vishakha Devi Dasi writes about Krishna as “The Supreme Wonder Behind All Wonders.” From our current perspective, those wonders begin with His creation. That marvelous artifact can inspire us to cultivate our natural love for the all-attractive artist behind it.

Krishna spent 125 years on earth, His life and teachings preserved in the literature and culture of India over the millennia. After all this time, His Bhagavad-gita has stood the test of time, still studied and adored by millions today. Chaitanya Charana Dasa, in “The Wise on Gita Wisdom,” considers qualities of the Gita that have made it a perennial guide for great thinkers of the East and the West.

First-time BTG author Nandimukhi Devi Dasi, who hails from China, considers “Six Gita Values and Chinese Culture.” She is hopeful that those shared values may attract more Chinese people to Lord Krishna’s all-important message, which can invoke wonder in all.

Hare Krishna. – Nagaraja Dasa, Editor
