Day 1, Friday, 19/09/08

I arrived at the airport to fetch Gurudev with Sivananda Sen Prabhu. Oliver Tambo International Airport is about ten times bigger than Durban’s airport, and about twenty times busier! Gurudev was wearing non-devotional cloth, so I didn’t recognize Him at first. Upon seeing Gurudev, Sivananda Sen bowed down. I garlanded Gurudev and offered my obeisances. As we walked towards the car, I asked Gurudev about His travels. He said that it was “not too bad”. I had been informed about Gurudev’s bout of flu so I didn’t pursue that line of questioning Him about His health. It did appear to me that He was unwell, but not incapacitated. Knowing Him, I assumed that He wanted to get past this infection as soon as possible so that He could get back to preaching. Shyamarani had asked me to confirm some details about Gurudev’s lunch and a house-visit by a devotee doctor, Kaviraj Shantiprakash. As we walked along, I asked Gurudev about these things.

4th annual festival in Angarsk

Dear devotees,

Please accept my most humble obeisance.

All glories to Srila Prabhupada!

All glories to Guru Maharaj!

We have just finished the 4th annual festival in Angarsk. This happened again near one place in Eastern Siberia, named Irkutsk. Devotees from Irkustk, Ust-Ilimsk and Angarsk tried their best to arrange everything in the perfect way to satisfy devotees (even more than year ago!). The festival was organized very nice and everyone was pleased, because the main idea of that festival was serving to devotees, and congregational chanting the Holy Names, traditionally.

Day 1, Monday, 01/09/08

Asha, Prana Priya and I were waiting at the airport to fetch Gurudev when we saw Gaura das and the rest of the temple brahmacaris, who had come along to offer a warm welcome to Gurudev. They had been distributing books to the passersby and joined me in a kirtan at the arrivals doors. When we at last got a glimpse of Gurudev, the kirtan intensified and brought a very broad smile from Srila Gurudev. He said, “What a pleasant surprise.” Several devotees garlanded Gurudev, and we continued to perform kirtan as we walked through the busy terminal. Read the rest of this entry »

Dear disciples and friends,

Please accept my blessings. All glories to Srila Prabhupada.

I’ve been very busy since I left the Altai festival in West Siberia about 4 weeks ago. From there I went to Lithuania, where we had a small celebration for my birthday. Read the rest of this entry »
