Has anybody heard about this news? Last time it was Ganesha, this time it's Krishna, drinking milk.
A devotee friend called me up to give this news few days ago. Something miracle has to happen on the earth whenever an extraordinary change occurs in the planetory system and he could feel it in his body, he said.

Dear vaishnava friends!
Thanks for noticing.
It's only a phone call away. But I've become very impersonal these days just because I'm spending too much time in GD.
I will keep you posted as soon as I find out more in detail.

Never mind! Madhava and Frodo!
I just spoke to that person to have some more info on this topic. This is just one of those things. I just posted here to see if anybody else has heard about it!
Today when I inquired about it, he said that someone saw in the news that Krishna was drinking milk. Then he said, "What do you know? In Kaliyuga, anything is possible!"
Last time he offered two glasses of milk to Ganesha which seemed to disappear!

I heard in ISKCON that the Dieties sometimes eat the prasadam during the offerings and don't put it back but forgot the details it has been a while.

I remember seeing a tv show a few years ago on this, it explained what was happening. I forget exactly, but depending on what the deity is made of it can appear to drink the milk. If I remember correctly one way is through absorption, and another way has to do with surface tension. They had a scientist feeding various statues of mickey mouse and other pop figures to show how the effect works. The real miracle it was said was the speed of hype via the internet.

Thanks for bringing this topic back again!
I did read the scientific explanations, but my heart goes with those people who made Ganesha or Krishna to drink milk with strong faith, feeling fortunate and felt the presence of God for that moment! Superstitions rule!
Scientific views only take the bhakti away! Let the Scientists find their logical explanations while the bhaktas remain overwhelmed by observing and feeling the wonderful acts (miracles) of God.

The way the Iskcon story went was a pujari offered a plate full of bhoga to the Dieties and went off the altar. When he came back he picked up the plate and brought it to the Diety kitchen. There the plate transferer and he saw that instead of the full glasses of milk there were only an inch or so left in the 8 ounce cups. Some pakoras were missing etc. The pujari cleansed the altar and nothing had fallen off or spilled. The milk was not boiling hot when poured in the cups. Krishna had actually accepted the offering.
