Sri Nabadwip Dham: The Festival Is Coming

26-27 February 2015

 

The flood of arrivals has subsided and now the central Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Math at Sri Nabadwip Math is swarming with devotees and guests from all over the world and India. The programmes and aratis are all well-attended, joyful and smooth, and everyone is eagerly awaiting the first day of the parikrama.

After the parikrama, His Divine Grace mercifully took the Western devotees to the museum where he spoke
in English, offering relief to those who do not know Bengali.


A testimony to the international nature of the festival: in the picture are devotees from India, Colombia,
the UK, Hongkong, Mexico, and the USA.

Some may think that because the ant eats little it is a sadhu, but the elephant carries Lord Krishna on its back, so while the elephant does service, the ant only bites.
