The Hare Krishna movement originates in Bengal; which explains the predominance of Bengali in literature and music, but to many ISKCON devotees and many Hindus/Vaisnavas around the world, the most recognizable bhajans (devotional songs) are in Braj Bhasa, a dialect of Hindi that was popular in devotional writings in Medieval India. Braj Bhasa is particularly important for devotees of Lord Krishna because of its identification to the land of Braja, the sacred home of Krishna.

In this episode, we listen to some Braj Bhasa bhajans to explore the pastimes of Lord Krishna and the culture of North Indian Vaisnavas.
