The Great American Road Trip, Part 6

We left Caldwell, ID and headed in the direction of Baker City, OR via Hells Canyon Scenic Byway. This canyon is the deepest in the country, carved by the Snake River and nicknamed "the cradle of the Snake"; the walls, in places are very steep, sheer rock cliffs. I will simply include photos here, for you to look at without any further commentary; it was a stunnning drive with each view of the river , around each bend in the road, more commanding than the one before. There are more adventures to come, and more quilt shops to report on too, in the next few installments of this ongoing travelogue. But, for today, I leave you with the Snake River... in all of its glory.

 Life is Good!

You have probably already said, but I don't remember ... how long did your trip take? My hubby and I talk a lot about doing a similar trip, possibly on our way to Seattle to take a cruise to Alaska. But we have no idea how long this would take. Of course, to date we've not been able to resist the temptation to go to the beach whenever we plan a trip. ;-)

Balance your spiritual energy and get in harmony with your soul by practicing these Radha-Krishna meditations.

Sri Gita Govinda
-A book written in the 12th century, this is a description of the intimate loving affairs of Radha and Krishna

Govinda Lilamrta
-An 400 year old book which poetically describes the eternal daily pastimes of Radha and Krishna

Ananda Vrindavan Campu
-This is probably the most poetic and intimate portrayal of Sri Krsna’s life in Vrndavana that has ever been written.

Prayers of Service to Radha and Krishna (Sankalpa Kalpadruma)

Prema Samputa The Treasure Chest of Love

And the following four are taken from Visvanath Cakravarti's Camatkara Candrika, a 300 year old scripture that talks about the love meeting of Radha and Krishna:

The Meeting in the Box

The Meeting of Sri Krishna Disguised as a Female Doctor

The Meeting of Sri Krishna Disguised as a Female Singer

The Meeting of Sri Krishna Disguised as Abhimanyu

And lastly, we have a very amazing scripture which describes the 24 hour daily loving affairs of Radha and Krishna in Vrindavan, called Bhavanasara Sangraha. This book is now available on Amazon for Kindle, for only $3.49


Here is a 41 page sample of Bhavanasara Sangraha:
