This is my holiday time. I do not have any schedule. I do not have to be anywhere at a certain time. Time is not important for me here. I do not even know what day of the week is today. I just enjoy being here in my Ashram and I do not go out much. Vrindavan is my home town, yes, but when I grew up here it was very different. We were playing in the forest and swimming in the Yamuna, the river that is flowing around Vrindavan. The water was clear and it was flowing rapidly. If I see it today it makes me sad how dirty it is. Because of the pollution it is also not flowing nicely anymore. There is a way around the city which is the way of the pilgrims, the Parikrama. It is the holy way in the city and I did this 9 km walk for many years daily. In that time it was sandy and you could do it with bare feet without any problem. It was like walking on the beach. If you walk on it today you will find it is partly tarred, some parts are very stony, nearly everywhere is dirt and only a little bit of the old sandy way is left. Of course you will have a nice walk around the city; you see a lot, temples and the river. Many of my guests enjoy doing this pilgrim way it but I have seen how it was and today it is only a pale reflection of the former beauty of the town. So I stay here and I am happy when my guests come home from a long walk and experience the Ashram as an island of peace in the hectic life of Vrindavan.
