Raganuga Bhakti - the Heart of Hinduism

Posted Feb 11 2010 11:13am

On the opposite side of the globe from Austin, Texas, is the ancient
town of Mathura, India. This holy place is famous as the appearance
place of Bhagwan Shree Krishn. Situated in the same district lies
Barsana, a peaceful village where 5,000 years ago the Supreme Goddess
Radha Rani appeared in Her Divine form. The Shreeji Temple dedicated
to Radha Rani is the focal point of the village.

Nestled in the beautiful Texas hill country, fifteen miles from
downtown Austin, is another Barsana - Barsana Dham. Encompassing over
200 acres of wooded, fertile land this traditional ashram provides the
rare opportunity to experience the true devotional environment that
prevailed in the ashrams of the historic Saints of Barsana and
Vrindaban, India.

Without a doubt, the crown jewel of Barsana Dham is the magnificent
Shree Raseshwari Radha Rani Temple, the largest Hindu temple complex
in the United States. Thousands of visitors are attracted to Barsana
Dham each year. Drawn by the opportunity to gain true knowledge of the
Hindu scriptures through daily satsangs, weekend intensives, and
family camps that are frequently organized there.

At the recent annual meeting of The Council of Hindu Temples of
America His Divinity Swami Prakashanand Saraswati (Shree Swamiji), the
founder of Barsana Dham said, "Temples represent the Divinity and
their role is to give enlightenment about God realization to those who
come to the temple. They are not just social or cultural
organizations, and they are not commercial institutions. They are the
place of God, and should give proper teachings and guidelines of how
to find God."

H.D. Swami Prakashanand Saraswati, a respected and renowned Spiritual
Master from Vrindaban, India, has trained several teachers to bring
this important message to the public. After extensive study of
Sanskrit scriptures, devotional music and the philosophy of Divine
love, they give programs in the US and abroad inspiring others with
the pure and original teachings of raganuga bhakti, which is the heart
of Hindu religion. These dedicated sanyasis teach that the universal
path of love and dedication can be adopted by any sincere person.
