Testimonials from Devotees
I want to thank you for spending so much of your time and energy into ensuring more children on this continent are afforded Sri Maharaj Ji's love and knowledge. You have a robust concept of what it means to be a youth in this country vs. India, and the differences in values and traditions that go along with that, but I wonder whether you know how much your presence means to those of us who would otherwise have very limited interaction Radha-Krishna (all while making us laugh at the same time).

Yugal Kunj has brought profound effects of spirituality, art, music, and many cultural aspects in my two kids within a short span of time. Without Didi Ji and Yugal Kunj we could not have done it ourselves. Thank You!

Frequently Asked Questions
Questions and Answers with Didi Ji
It is said that there is no such thing as love in this material world. What is LOVE?
Love is not to be confused with attachment of the mind. In the world, we form attachments wherever we experience, or even suspect fulfillment of self-interest. This attachment is erroneously known as love, and it is selfish by nature. True love is never selfish; it is absolutely selfless. A gopi loves Shri Krishna. As she fans her Lord, tears of happiness stream out of her eyes. Now the gopi must wipe her tears, so she curses her own happiness since it has caused an interruption in serving her beloved. Such is the nature of true love.
How do we move forward from past mistakes?
God and Guru do not look at our past; they only look at our present. So, if you seriously feel remorse for past mistakes and genuinely resolve to no longer committing them you will move forward and ultimately forget about them. Do not allow them to paralyze you so that you are not able to move away from them. It’s not helpful to beat yourself up about them either. You will only feel discouraged. Learn from your mistakes and move on.
How can we realize we are not the body, and dissassociate with bodily pain and pleasure?
We do have a body, and as long as the body remains, we will experience pain and pleasure. The more you realize yourself to be the soul, the more you will disassociate yourself from matters pertaining to the body. However, even an elevated spiritual person experiences physical discomfort and pain, and has to deal with such matters. His attitude towards physical matters, however, changes drastically.

He said, "Imagine life as a game in which you are juggling five balls in the air. You name them - work, family, health, friends and spirit - and you're keeping all of these in the air. You will soon understand that work.....
