By Srila Bhakti Sundar Govinda Dev-Goswami Maharaj's divine will, the devotees currently staying with him in Dum Dum Park, Kolkata, were fortunate to celebrate Sri Govardhan Puja for two days in a row. On November 2nd, Srila Gurudev decided to hold the festival in Dum Dum Park that very day, which is the day it would also be celebrated in Vrindavan due to the opening of Srila Krishna Das Kaviraj's Memorial to be held the following day in Vrindavan; and on the 3rd November, Srila Gurudev led the Sri Govardhan Puja Festival at our Kaikhali Math - the same day on which it would be celebrated in the rest of our Maths in India and Worldwide

Sripad B.S. Niskinchan Maharaj led the programme throughout the morning and afternoon in the nat mandir in Dum Dum Park, speaking both in Bengali and English.

Afternoon arati.

108 offerings....

The many guests who attended the Dum Dum Park programme had been expecting the festival to be held the following day, so messengers from the Math were sent out in the morning to inform them of the change.

Two of the leading members of our worldwide devotee community: Kum Kum Didi, who manages the Ashram in San Jose, California, and Krishnendrani Didi, who recently translated The Hidden Treasure of the Sweet Absolute into Turkish, and who now continues to work on more translations.
