In each of those kujas, Krishna enjoys either with Radha or with that particular sakhI. Yes, they are the leading caretakers of these kujas, though the practical arrangements are commonly done by the vana-devIs of Vrinda.

The majarIs have kujas as well, though their kujas are not as grandiose as those of the leading sakhIs, and are primarily meant for keeping the paraphernalia for varieties of service.


How can I type tildes like that, with words like manjari, kunja, and so on?

I have a key for adding , and on top of letters in my Finnish keyboard, as well as one for and . I would assume that for example French keyboards have the same. So, switch to using either of the two. smile.gif

Thanks Gaurasundara! That was my question too. I was wondering how Madhava gets it and we don't! huh.gif

If you do ay kid of desktop publishig you get used to alt-keyig so may characters, e.g. the m-dash, n-dash, etc. Ufortuately this ca be difficult o a laptop though as you really eed the umeric keypad i order to do it (relatively) quickly. I also keep the Widows Character Map hady as it lists all of the alt-keys for each fot you have istalled. You ca copy ad paste from it also.

Wow, an All-Terrain Optical Engine--or, to use NASA's inhouse abbreviation, "a toe."

I actually have an inbuilt keypad on my Thinkpad but haven't managed to learn the key that enables it. blush.gif
