Let's march into March

'Vrat' or 'pledge /vow' are good to form nishtha in a devotee - 'nishtha hoite upoje premer taranga' - nishtha or steadfastness in devtional practice ultimately arouses the waves of prem. Here we can share some good habits we are trying to form - that is conducive for our sadhana. We could concentrate on getting into the habit of reading a bit for one month, or control the tongue on certain days a week. Stating it and sharing our progress gives rise to accountability, enthusiasm and impetus. The competition is against ourselves. and all of us are here to inspire and encourage each other, for then we get kripa, and kripa is the only thing we are banking on.

But i must say - it isnt what i had in mind. actually i am disappointed that i didn't get THAT white cloth with red sequins i had seen in Banamali's shop at Rradhakund :cry: Sigh ! Anyway, i'll get down to make the most of it. i have told DH to buy gold zari. Now lets see.

Radhe Radhe !!

This dress needs some more modification. What's the point starting on a new project when the earlier one is incomplete or not perfectly satisfactory ? So i m planning to start improvising on the present project that is the kids' dresses. For this i'll need a pure white cloth. Well, lets c now... i alread have a cotton , but it is way too thin. i also have a crepe, but will it look OK ? And of ocurse we'll need quite a lot of red frills - let's c....

Yesterday Neelu and co got some bandhni print from gujarati mataji - and the sam eprint that i had once admired in Sharada Mataij's house when i had seen her Deities wearing them. Oh how i had wished that my kids too had bandhni. Of course, i have to starch and iron this piece. But i'll start with it after i finish the Gour Purnima project. :smile:
