kalinditi samakhyata
 vasami yamuna-jale
nirmite bhavane pitra
 yavad acyuta-darsanam

I am known as Kalindi, and I live in a mansion my father built for me within the water of the Yamuna. There I will stay until I meet Lord Acyuta.

Since Kalindi was a beloved child of the sun-god himself, who would dare disturb her? From this incident we can appreciate the beautiful spiritual processes executed in previous ages by great souls. Unlike the so-called love in worldly “love affairs,” beautiful Kalindi’s love for Lord Krsna was pure and perfect. Even though Kalindi was a tender young girl, her determination to marry Krsna was so strong that she arranged for her father to build her a house in the Yamuna where she could perform severe austerities until the day her beloved came.
