Quotes

O friend, since I heard Krishna’s name,
I have forgotten my home
and have gone completely mad.
My eyes fill with tears – my mind reels.
My body is transformed.
The fruit of all my fasts and dharma practices
finally arose when I heard the sacred name.
Sings Nandadas, “Look at what happened to her
after truly hearing His name just once –
Imagine what will happen when she sees Him!
— Nandadas
