Radha Raman Jayanthi – Radha Ramana Jayanti

Radha Ramana Jayanti, or Radharaman Jayanthi, is believed to be the day when the idol of Radha Raman (Lord Krishna and Radha) manifested from a Salagrama in the famous RadhaRamanTemple in Vrindavan. In 2018, the date of Radha Raman Jayanthi is April 30. Radha Raman Jayanti is a highly auspicious day for Krishna devotees. The divine incident happened on Vaishakha Purnima (full moon day).

On the day devotees can have a darshan of Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu’s cloth and asana at the RadhaRamanTemple in Vrindavan.

Legend has it that Gopala Bhatta Gosvami, a disciple of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu, once visited River Gandaki in Nepal and while taking bath he found Salagramas in his water pot.

Thinking it to be some divine decision, Gopala Bhattaji took the Salagrama and worshipped it at Vrindavan.

Once during Narasimha Jayanti, a devotee wanted to offer gold and …

Success eludes a dissatisfied person

Dissatisfaction with ourselves is a serious problem as it affects our daily life, it is a joy killer, it affects our relationship, and it is the main reason for the failure of various aspects of life. Success always eludes a dissatisfied person.
Being unhappy in a small way is positive as it leads to improvement.
But to be discontented and disappointed always is not good. It is a sign of negativity.
Top in the list of dissatisfaction is our looks. We give too much importance to outwardly appearance. 
Quite often, we forget that what matters is our character not looks. Smile and joy emanating from an honest person are everlasting than the fake smile from a handsome person. Instead of concentrating on the looks try to focus on truth, honesty, and on being genuine. We come across many beautiful faces but what remains with us is a genuine smile.

When dissat…
