I wanted to share with you a quick preview from “The Trees Want To Tell Their Story”, with Jagattarini Dasi, Artistic Director at The Sacred India Gallery. Jagattarini is busy in Vrindavan gathering material for this upcoming project.
In this video Jagattarini Dasi shares with us the mysterious pilu trees at a very special place known as Prem Sarovara.
I hope you enjoy the footage. — Rukmini
She settled in Vrindavan (the land of Krishna), a sacred town two hours south of New Delhi, where she stayed for twelve years. She became fascinated by the people, their traditions, food, and art, and it wasn’t long before she was exploring this sacred and ancient land. In the 1980s it was difficult for a modern Western woman to gain entrance into Vrindavan’s culture, but Jagattarini worked hard to win the trust of the people, and gradually, she was allowed an intimate glimpse into their lives and spiritual traditions, which included their time-honoured stories of Krishna. Over time, she began to take visitors to Vrindavan on tours of the places she had explored, sharing with them what she had learned. She also travelled to other spiritual locations around India, sometimes alone and sometimes leading tours, but always with an eye to learning all she could about local traditions. In 1996 Jagattarini and her family moved back to Australia. To her, Vrindavan had become home, and now she deeply missed everything about it.
