All Glories to Sri Guru and Sri Gauranga!
Dear Friend of the Ashram,

Please join us this Friday, October 24th, for the celebration of Govardhan Puja. You are welcome to bring your family and friends for this special evening commemorating Sri Krishna's divine childhood pastimes.

He will be visiting Santa Cruz, San Jose, Salt Lake City, Portland, and spending some time in Mexico as well. I will announce his full travel schedule next week, but for now we can look forward to his arrival late on November 25th.
