Both by Rising and Setting of the Sun

SUNRISE

"With every rising and setting of the sun, a day passes and is lost. Then, why do you remain idle and not serve the Lord of the heart? This temporary life is full of various miseries. Take shelter of the holy name as your only business. To penetrate the darkness of ignorance and bless everyone's heart, the holy name has risen like the shining sun"

This is the translation of the fifth, sixth, and seventh slokas of Arunodaya-kirtana by Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakura

Both of these pictures were taken on the ISCOWP farm this summer. Our days start before sunrise and last past sunset. From the start of the day to day’s end Lord Krsna never ceases to amaze us with His choreography of nature and Natures bounties.

SUNSET

This was truly beautiful and inspiring! The photos are wonderful, and the shots and descriptions of the garden make one hungry. From your fans and admirers, Bhaktin Connie and Bhakta Jim.

P.S. Connie says the garden is to die for.
