Between Hari Nama Sankirtana and the mercy of Giriraja Govardhana, the European summer becomes a transcendental one. It is so simple to transform a material situation into the spiritual world, all by the mercy of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu and the holy name.
Krsna resides in his own abode, sometimes known as Svetadvipa or Gokula, bhaje svetadvipam tam aham iha golokam iti yam (Brahma-samhita 5.56). Krsna is surrounded by wish-fulfilling Surabhi cows that produce oceans of milk. The earth is made of touchstone and everywhere, there are desire trees. The opulence of the entire spiritual world is present when Krsna descends to the material world. In our worship, we are trying to be transparent to that spiritual situation. The devotees have provided all this opulence for Krsna, but even all the opulence of the material world is just a spark of His splendor.
