Dear devotees and friends,
This year will be the third anniversary of the disappearance of His Divine Grace Srila Bhakti Sundar Govinda-Dev Goswami Maharaj. Although our mission is proceeding with enthusiasm and purity all over the world, we cannot help but feel a deep sadness and loss over Srila Gurudev’s departure from this plane. Simultaneously we feel his presence in our life and also feel his absence. Internally he is giving us spiritual strength but at the same time we feel weak and lost without his physical presence. What can we do? We can glorify him and remember his sweet pastimes in the association of the devotees.
Please come and give us your holy association on this occasion. Srila Janardan Maharaj will be returning from his travels to China and India this week and will be here to lead the program. Weather permitting; the program will be held at the beautiful pushpa samadhi mandir that was built by the hands of so many dedicated devotees of Srila Govinda Maharaj. Please come and join us.
Srila Govinda Maharaj ki jay!
