The Last 5 days

This Sunday, Nov. 14th, we begin the last 5 days of the sacred month of Kartika. I want you to imagine these are the last 5 days of your life here in this body and world. This is not such an unusual request - our most thorough book on the philosophy of Bhakti begins with a king being cursed to die in 7 days. He turns that into a blessing.

For us, the last 5 days of Kartika are also a blessing. So, if we can meditate that these are our last 5 days, what do we want to do with them? How can we surround ourselves with the most beautiful Krishna conscious experiences? Who do we want to listen to? What do we want to read? What activities in Krishna’s service bring us joy and absorption? What do we want to let go of? Who do we want to forgive? What relationship might we need to repair?
