Testimonials from Devotees
Didi Ji we just want to let you know that before the sankeerthan we saw you as a guru or a sanyasi with wealth of knowledge. But after attending the sankeerthan we feel that God has specially chosen you to do this work, only god chosen people like you can make a difference in so many people’s life. Thank you Didi Ji for blessing us with your teachings.

(Translated from Gujrati) Jai Shri Krishna from my entire family. We are very happy taking God’s darshan in this temple. I feel as if I am beholding Shri Krishna Bhagvan in His divine abode. Today I am extremely happy.

Every Sunday is just a magical experience with my family at Yugal Kunj. Thank you for making Sundays special!

Kids don't want to leave Yugal Kunj even after the day is over. They'll definitely miss summer camp!! Thank you to all the amazing volunteers for making this happen especially our youth volunteers!
Nishtha Patel, Atlanta
Thank you so much for taking time and replying to my email so lovingly. There are so many things in the spiritual world that we, at least I, cannot understand. I have felt that the more you get into it, the more you feel you do not know. It seems to be limitless. I am a subscriber of your “Words of Wisdom”, and appreciate your work from the heart. When I find some words which touch my heart, I forward them to my children, and near and dear ones. I thank you again.

Frequently Asked Questions
Questions and Answers with Didi Ji
It is said that there is no such thing as love in this material world. What is LOVE?
Love is not to be confused with attachment of the mind. In the world, we form attachments wherever we experience, or even suspect fulfillment of self-interest. This attachment is erroneously known as love, and it is selfish by nature. True love is never selfish; it is absolutely selfless. A gopi loves Shri Krishna. As she fans her Lord, tears of happiness stream out of her eyes. Now the gopi must wipe her tears, so she curses her own happiness since it has caused an interruption in serving her beloved. Such is the nature of true love.
How do we move forward from past mistakes?
God and Guru do not look at our past; they only look at our present. So, if you seriously feel remorse for past mistakes and genuinely resolve to no longer committing them you will move forward and ultimately forget about them. Do not allow them to paralyze you so that you are not able to move away from them. It’s not helpful to beat yourself up about them either. You will only feel discouraged. Learn from your mistakes and move on.
How can we realize we are not the body, and dissassociate with bodily pain and pleasure?
We do have a body, and as long as the body remains, we will experience pain and pleasure. The more you realize yourself to be the soul, the more you will disassociate yourself from matters pertaining to the body. However, even an elevated spiritual person experiences physical discomfort and pain, and has to deal with such matters. His attitude towards physical matters, however, changes drastically.

Just do it
"Just do it". Yes, this is the tag line from Nike that resonates with a lot of athletes. The best way to play a sport is not to master the rules and techniques of the sport before getting on the field to play. Instead, it is to master the sport while playing it. If you have watched a bunch of little kids play soccer, baseball or cricket, you will understand what I mean. They don't understand the r.....
