No New Posts Improving the Mind Through Memorization

In order to do something to counteract the weakening of our minds as we age, I have decided to periodically add Sanskrit verses/stavas here for memorization. These will be stray verses and longer compositions that any serious Vaisnava should know by heart. Many of these I used to know, but now have forgotten. Join me in building a mental garden full of the flowers and fruit trees of Vaisnava wisdom.
