gaura purnima 2009 in Navadvipa

Feeling completely rejuvinated after an amazing week of parikramas of the dham, sadhu sanga, listening of naam and lila kirtan, partaking of prasad and ganga darshan. There were grand celebrations in our temple 'Sonar Mandir' as we celebrated our gurudev Om Vishnupad 108 Tridandi Swami's birthday along with Mahaprabhu's abirbhav on the 11th of March. A grand feast was held on Jagannath Mishra's utsav, on the 12th when a large congregation enjoyed mahaprasadam. Devotees from all over the country were present to pay homage to guru and gauranga!
The miracle of the holy dham is indeed mindblowing. Truly, there is no place like Navadvipa in the entire planet!
yours in the service of the guru,

preparing for Goura Purnima, 2009

The excitement within my heart increases, as the dates of Goura Purnima 2009 come nearer. This year, I will take part in the parikrama of the 9 dvipas that is navadvipa. The celebrations in our temple will be in full swing, and I can immerse myself in the sounds of the Mahamantra, singing and dancing with joyous abandon, barefoot in the streets of Navadvipa. The energy of Baba, my gurudev, will permeate my being, and I will relive all the priceless moments I have shared with Him in this holy land! I am blessed to have lived with Him and served Him in Navadvipa.
