Prayer for Wednesday (Padwa / Govardhan Puja)

The 5 day Hindu festival of Dewali (or Deepavali), the Festival of Lights, continues today. Today is also the Hindu festivals of Padwa and Govardhan Puja.

To ignore evil is to become an accomplice to it.
~ Martin Luther King, Jr.

Let Krishna, who is so kind, beautiful and merciful, protect us. When angry Indra sent torrents of rain, accompanied by showers of ice blocks and high wind, He immediately took compassion upon us and saved us and our families, cows, and valuable possessions by picking up the Govardhana Hill, just as a child picks up a mushroom. He saved us so wonderfully. May He continue to mercifully glance over us and our cows. May we live peacefully under the protection of wonderful Krishna.
