Pujya Swamiji’s Blessings On Govardhan Puja

On the very special occasion of Goverdhan Puja Pujya Swami Chidanand Saraswatiji – Munijii beautifully-shared how the holiday is a symbol of how Lord Krishna emphasized the importance of not only revering but protecting and preserving the natural creation. He shared, “Our mountains, our trees, our animals – all are part of divine creation.” Narrating the story associated with the celebrations He added, “When Lord Indra sent torrential rains to punish the people of Goverdhan for not worshipping Him, it was Lord Krishna and Mother Nature that protected them. To honor the natural world for its protection of humanity, we must in turn protect nature. We must realign our priorities to provide the same protection and conservation of nature that it provides us.”
