The Trees Got Out!

by Haricarana das

Once upon a time, back in the mid-70’s, a few of us brahmacaris were hanging out in the ashram above the Bahulaban temple. Devaki came in and noticed that Romaharshan was sleeping over in the corner.

He got a twinkle in his eye and started yelling, “Get up! Get up! Somebody left the gate open and all the trees got out!” Romaharshan jumped up and quickly started putting his pants on, ready to go out and round up all those trees. Then he noticed that the rest of us were standing there laughing and he slowly realized he’d been had.

(Ed. note: Romaharsan was the woodsman for New Vrindaban at the time who provided the firewood to keep the Deities and devotees warm).

Correction: It should be ‘standing there laughing.’
