Nama Om Vishnupadaya…
Jaya Bhakti Vinod Thakur…
Bhakti Vinod Thakur made the prediction, one day will come when people from all the world will meet their Indian brothers, chanting Jai Sachinandana and embracing each other, without any discrimination of caste or creed. This Maha Milan, his prediction is fulfilled! We are so happy to see six parties this year. There are six parties, three Bengali, one Russian, one Hindi and one International. But we have already made seven camps. So who is going to bring the new party for the seventh camp? That will be a Tamil party or Chinese party or Spanish party?? So Prabhupad started our parikrama yagna. Now Prabhupad started the parikrama 50 years ago. So now we have so many devotees participating and this is just still going to increase more and more! As the Temple of Vedic Planetarium is nearing completion TOVP, there will be more and more people coming! Brajavilas has mentioned, you can all be part of this great project. Whatever you can donate, please contribute – one foot is 5-7000 rupees. And also you can get a Lord Nrsimhadev medallion for Rs. 51,000. This was Prabhupad’s vision, he wanted to be fulfilled by us. So I would like to thank all of you for participating in this Navadvip mandal parikrama. I would have liked to go in this parikrama, but for some medical reasons I was not able to mix. But I would like to embrace all the vaishnavas and say Jai Sachinandana! Jai Sachinandana! So please come every year and bring your friends! Bathe in the dust of Lord Gauranga’s lotus feet! This way you can get the blessings mercy of Gauranga Mahaprabhu. If you cannot wait till next Gaura Purnima or Gaura Mandal Parikrama, there is an ashta krosha parikrama in the month of Kartik. This happens eight days before Kartik Purnima. And also, Naru Gopal has a special parikrama in the month of Kartik. Lord Nityananda used to go on parikrama, one day parikrama 32 miles. For Nityananda prabhu, there was no prescribed time for parikrama, one day, three days, nine days. But we do in the month of Kartik, this parikrama. I would like to end here.
We want to thank all the sanyasis and senior devotees who went on parikrama and guided the devotees! Also want to thank all the devotees including the devotees who cooked, served prasadam, organized the camps at the various sites and various devotees in the backup. Bhakti Purushottam maharaj, on my behalf, will touch the Srimad Bhagavatam and Caitanya Caritamrita, if anyone wants to take it, you can take it from him. I have signed the books.
Haribol! Thank you!
