Moving my blog

Dear Friends

It has been a great joy to spend this phase of online communications and relationships with you here on Blogger.

For the sake of greater ease of posting and fewer logins and contortions, I am moving future content to my TumblogFrank Kaufmann

I hope you will follow me there

Also, I've a few other places where I publish my blog style content.  These include


My published articles and commentary will continue to appear in the newspapers and on line media as usual. News of new articles will always be announced at least in the Tumblog. So you can't get to all articles from there.

Thank you all again for your loving support.  See you in my new media

Recent Travels

I just got back from Korea

While there I delivered a scholarly paper at the invitation of an Asan University, and then spent a day in meetings in Seorak

I did manage a bit of time with friends up the mountains

Just before that I was in Luxembourg and Slovakia (mostly for meetings and teaching)


Now I'm back preparing for the holidays, and trying to keep our projects moving forward

August, 2013 visit to India

I spent 10 days in India the beginning of August.

At first I presented a paper to the conference hosted by the Swami Narayan Sampraday at Akshardam in New Delhi

I then spent several days at the Radha Raman Temple Ashram in Vrindavan with Shri Shrivatsa Goswami and his family

I had a brief visit to a magnificent marble inlay gallery of Dinesh Chand Bansal near Mathura

Shrivatsa and I stopped at the tomb of Moghul emperor Akbar on the way back home

I briefly stopped at Gobind Sadan, founded by Baba Virsa Singh, to visit devotee and author Mary Pat Fischer

Here below are some images from my time

4th of July 2013

This year, to celebrate the 4th, Hiroko and I went for a lovely visit to Mamaroneck to enjoy time with friends, and a delicious and abundant day of food and drink.

We  trained  back south early enough to see the Macy's fireworks from the roof of our Sunnyside apartment building.

Those fireworks are so grand, that though they take place facing New Jersey from New York's West side, we see them from Queens
