Dear Friends
We celebrate the great saint, Srila Bhakti Tirtha Swami’s Vyasa-puja today. Even though he is no longer with us, we remember his vibrant energy and deep humanity. Maharaja said, “Treat everyone you encounter as if the success of your spiritual life depends upon the quality of your interactions with them.”
