    In Focus: Go Govardhana Girls!
    By Mandakini devi dasi For the very fist tie in the history of New Govardhana, Australia, an offial women’s ashrama is rapidly unfolding. Ajita dasa has given his consent for the transformatin of the top guest house into a women’s ashrama, thanks to Padma devi dasi, who moved on to the farm a couple of months ago. Padma is organising the ashrama, delegatig mentors for the girls and generally overseeing the project. With impressive qualifiatins, Padma is more than up for the task. The fldgling ashrama, which is almost at full capacity, is soon to take in more aspiring devotees including bhakties from the WWOOFer program. We now have bhakties and brahmacharinis also coming to New Govardhana from other ISKCON centres. The ashrama girls have a plethora of services, including temple dutis; cooking; bhajanas; cultural actiitis; and garland-making. Notably, the girls were especially busy serving guests and VIPs during the recent retreats and festials. A training program to learn how to preach is also under way. Padma’s aspiratin is to help create a pleasant Krishna conscious environment for her spirited charges. The girls are enthusiastially coming on board and currently joining forces to organise their new ashrama.

    “Oh Govinda! Feeling Your separation, I am considering a moment to be like twelve years or more. Tears are flowing from My eyes like torrents of rain, and I am feeling all vacant in the world in your absence.” This is the perfectional stage of chanting the Hare Krishna mantra.
    (Caitanya-caritamrta, Adi-lila, 8.51 Purport)

    “As a result of chanting the Hare Krishna maha-mantra, one makes such great advancement in spiritual life that simultaneously his material existence terminates and he receives love of Godhead. The holy name of Krishna is so powerful that by chanting even one name, one very easily achieves these transcendental riches.” (Caitanya-caritamrta, Adi-lila, 8.28)
