Birthday Present For Sri Krishna
Loving exchanges toward the Lord can be expressed in our hearing about him, chanting his glories and names, praying in a heartfelt way and also by bringing him gifts. That is actually recommended every time we visit the Lord.
For the appearance day of the Lord, gifts are even more appreciated. The list of what could be pleasing to the Lord is unlimited. It starts with leave, water and devotion and can extend to Kitchen equipment, various groceries, spices, saffron and most beautiful jewelry.
Coming to a birth day without present is always a bit embarrassing. Therefore, we would like to invite you into a meditation, a prayer: What Can I offer to Sri Sri Radha Madana Mohan? In this simple mediation, this simple prayer, the Lord will certainly inspire you in the heart about what they would like most, coming from your hands. Here starts the loving exchange: How can I please you? What can I bring for you?
Everyone is welcome to also write a short letter as a personal offering to the Deities and add to the gifts.
Your gifts will be offered in a special moment to Krishna on his birthday, where the Pujaris will accept the presents in the name of the Deities and bless the devotee with the lotus feet of Krishna.
