Narcissus Flowers for Krishna in New Vrindaban

Narcissus for Krsna

By Lilasuka dasi

Perhaps you’ve seen them.  If you’ve been up on the second floor of the Radha Vrindaban Chandra temple building, you’ve probably seen the beautiful “paper white narcissus” flowers growing in the front window.  Their brilliant white color thrives on all the direct sunlight there.  ECOV is growing these durable, fragrant flowers inside, during the cold winter months, for offering to the Deities.

Most of the mature narcissus have already been picked and offered, but see the new baby ones coming up!  By planting 125 a week, a steady supply is available for Their Lordships Radha Vrindaban Chandra.

Krsna says in the Bhagavad Gita, “If one offers Me with love and devotion a leaf, flower, fruit or water, I will accept it.” [BG 9.26]   Srila Prabhupada’s vision for New Vrindaban included self-sufficiency, along with four other aspects, all for the purpose of loving Krsna.  So, the growing of these lovely little, aromatic narcissus flowers is a small part of fulfilling that vision.
