RETURNING to the SOURCE
Radha had no messages for Krishna. What was the need for messages when they were ONE? But the little green parrot was impatiently fluttering his wings, eager to fly again. He felt important and special when he carried a message from Radha.
“Once, in 2007, a small group including me were traveling with Gurudev in Kenya. We had flown to show him the wild animals in the jungle. He was in a car ahead of us.
