Radha-Krishna’s Desire

12 “For a long time I have not given the gift of prema-bhakti. Without bhakti the world has no stability. 13 In all the world they have vidhi-bhakti for me. [But] in vidhi-bhakti there is no power to gain the bhava of Braj. 14 All the world is involved in knowledge of my divinity. But […]

Life Affirming

What does it mean that Universalist Radha-Krishnaism is a life affirming philosophy? It means accepting our embodied state and this world as a God-dess given gift.

I sent […]

A spiritual journey from Sunol to Oregon, Berkeley, the Midwest and Hawaii

I love the sweet smell of Kilkare Woods. It signals my re-entry to Sunol. Twenty-three years ago, I pried myself away from here and my position as editor of the Sunolian. I now live in a yurt in the Hawaiian rain forest. A personal journey by Geraldine Baldassarre.

Groundhog Day religions

Imagine this: One morning you wake up, brush your teeth, have breakfast, go out, walk the street and continue with your exciting new daily plan. However, everyone around starts addressing you as you were a person 30 years ago — a person from another time.
