(Excerpts from Daily Lectures on Shrimad Bhagavatam by Sadguru Dr. Acharya Atmadasa, Founder, Atmashrama)

The ever-enchanting Lord Sri Krishna is the darling of all hearts. His mere presence makes everything lively and joyful. Usually, the Summers are harsh with scorching heat literally frying everything underneath. The rivers dry out and trees are devoid of their shine and wine. Everything looks dull and monotonous. There is always the fear of the dreaded forest fire causing total destruction to flora and fauna. No wonder, Summer is greatly discerned by anyone. One would expect a similar situation in Vrindavana during Summer. But miraculous, so it is, the Summer in the Vrindavana was something different. No one could lament that “This is Summer”. Due to the divine presence of Lord Sri Krishna, the Summer was like Spring. There was rich greenery everywhere. With flowering trees and cool scented breeze blowing over the tranquil waters spreading the fragrance from the pollens of blooming flowers, it was as if the heavens descended upon this earth. There was no fear of the forest fire. The fine dust of the Lotuses, Jasmines and Lillie’s was making people joyous.
