“My first time in Mayapur, the fountain of Radha-Krishna kirtan in West Bengal, India, a fellow pilgrim turned me on to this book. Mayapur shimmers with bhakti energy, with "Hare Krishna, Hare Krishna…" being sung around every corner. And yet, it was culturally so foreign that I felt a bit lost amidst something clearly so powerful.
Radhanath Swami's story became a bridge for me to relate to this deep Bhakti tradition that might appear foreign at first, but actually is as familiar as the heart's own longing for God. After I finished the book, I discovered that he was visiting Mayapur, holding a massive kirtan in the main temple! His singing and sweet vibrato conveyed great feeling and tenderness for Radha-Krishna.”
