Vrindavan: the city of faith

We spent three days in Vrindavan, the birthplace of Krishna, and its surrounding areas. It’s filled with people chanting and praying, and we greet each other with “radhe radhe” or “hare krishna”. I really enjoyed the enthusiasm and energy of the people, as well as the beautiful Yamuna river.

Journal entry:

I didn’t find anything in India, but I found everything in myself; coming to India helped me see that.

I finally believe that everything we need to know is within us; we just need to find the courage to face it. We don’t need to go to the India to wash away our sins or find out who we are, we just need some time away to see ourselves clearly. India is the medium, but you are the answer that you are looking for.

Here in India where you’re a blank piece of paper, where no one knows who you are or what you do, you can just be you. Without all the baggage life has brought you or the things you’ve burdened yourself with, you can be free.

So forgive yourself for your sins, and then forgive others.
