Radhakunda Prabhu Portrait

One aspect of his Krishna Consciousness : He used to chant Krishna’s name before every morsel of Prasadam. He would chant Govinda and then take one morsel then Madhava and then take another morsel…. and so on until he finished his entire meal.
His primary complaint in life was that he felt our society should immerse itself deeper in Hari katha. Those friends who want to honor him the most should do exactly that, for indeed, it is pleasing to Srila Prabhupada and to Sri Sri Radha and Krishna.
Radha Kunda was the principle cook for all those 700 devotees in California (west-coast U.S.A), and he was super excellent in his skill, full-on gourmet of the highest quality. He could whip out a super-tasty, exceptional (on a world scale) feast for so many devotees in less than two hours!
