In the last days of March, look at the rising sun on the Eastern shore to see the lotus-eyed Jagannath. This form of the Lord is a manifestation of His joy upon seeing His devotees. We are five weeks away from the Durban Festival of Chariots. His Holiness Indradyumna Swami is here finalising arrangements. After many years we host the festival near the sandy shores of the Bay of Plenty.
His Holiness Jayadvaita Swami is visiting from Friday, 22nd February to Monday, 4th March. Famous as Srila Prabhupada’s editor, head of the Bhaktivedanta Book Trust and chief editor of the Back to Godhead magazine for some time, he is meticulous when it comes to discussing Krishna conscious philosophy and presenting Srila Prabhupada’s books accurately. This Swami is simple, straight forward, and sublime.
On Saturday, we celebrate the appearance anniversary of the original spiritual master, Lord Nityananda. We can pray that He bless us with faith and conviction in our spiritual teachers.
