Sepia Saturday 234 : 28 June 2014

First of all let me say thank you to everyone for their good wishes last week - we had a wonderful day which will live long in our memory. I regret to say that I am still in recovery mode, so please accept my apologies if this call is towards the perfunctory end of the scale. For Sepia Saturday 234 our theme image - which comes from the University of Washington Flickr stream - shows a number of people with their feet in the water. For those looking for a theme to follow there are lakes, there are reflections, there are our old friends the hats again .... there are all sorts of possibilities. Just post your post on or around Saturday 28th June 2014 and then link your post to the list below. Sepian Wendy Mathias very kindly suggested a number of possible themes and I will be incorporating many of these into our calls in the weeks to come (I have kept the theme for 236, Wendy, but changed the image as the one you suggested was a little small). Don't forget, anyone can suggest a theme by e-mailing me or leaving a suggestion on our Facebook page. So here are the next two Sepia Saturday themes for you to think about:-

235 : Greetings and handshakes : pipes and politicians

236 : Hair, drying, beauty, nails, strange headgear.

That is for the future. For now, I am going back to bed and I am going to leave you with Sepia Saturday 234 to reflect upon.

Yes, standing in shallow water, or floating on a tube...the joys of cool wading!

I was surprised I had so many pictures of my family wading in water one way and another!

Paddling and picnics are my takes on this week's prompt.

Little Nell said...

I had to narrow it down to people paddling in their outdoor clothes (as per prompt), otherwise I wouldn’t be able to stop!

Do people send seaside postcards anymore?

I originally was going to post something with "reflections" but ended up updating a post with "waders" that I did a few years ago (but not for Sepia Saturday).

Reflections - literal and figurative this week.

I'll take this cue to show a favorite summertime photo and postcard.

I was going to do something about the wonderful "finds" people have made while squishing around in the wet sand with their feet, but then nostalgia got in the way.

Sorry if I've done this twice! Anyway - I'm back! I think it has probably been a year or so. Had the perfect picture to motivate me to participate.

Just a few waders and some comments.

You're not going to get me in the water this time of year around here. :)

Balance your spiritual energy and get in harmony with your soul by practicing these Radha-Krishna meditations.

Sri Gita Govinda
-A book written in the 12th century, this is a description of the intimate loving affairs of Radha and Krishna

Govinda Lilamrta
-An 400 year old book which poetically describes the eternal daily pastimes of Radha and Krishna

Ananda Vrindavan Campu
-This is probably the most poetic and intimate portrayal of Sri Krsna’s life in Vrndavana that has ever been written.

Prayers of Service to Radha and Krishna (Sankalpa Kalpadruma)

Prema Samputa The Treasure Chest of Love

And the following four are taken from Visvanath Cakravarti's Camatkara Candrika, a 300 year old scripture that talks about the love meeting of Radha and Krishna:

The Meeting in the Box

The Meeting of Sri Krishna Disguised as a Female Doctor

The Meeting of Sri Krishna Disguised as a Female Singer

The Meeting of Sri Krishna Disguised as Abhimanyu

And lastly, we have a very amazing scripture which describes the 24 hour daily loving affairs of Radha and Krishna in Vrindavan, called Bhavanasara Sangraha. This book is now available on Amazon for Kindle, for only $3.49


Here is a 41 page sample of Bhavanasara Sangraha:

The above book can also be read on your PC using Amazon Kindle for PC, download here for free:

ISKCON, or "The Hare Krishna Movement" as it's popularily known, is a radical and extremist distortion of the original Radha and Krishna dharma from ancient India. The author of the above book Bhavanasara Sangraha is no longer affiliated with ISKCON either, having cut all ties to ISKCON a few years ago.
