At the desire of Srila Gurudev, His Divine Grace Srila Bhakti Sundar Govinda Dev-Goswami Maharaj, His Holiness Sripad Bhakti Sudhir Goswami Maharaj recently visited the devotees of Australia for three weeks, daily enlivening the many devotees with his association and Hari-katha.
Several ritvik initiations were given throughout his stay to sincere seekers of all ages, extending the shelter and merciful glance of our Divine Guardian, Srila Govinda Maharaj.
Towards the beginning of his stay in Sri Govinda Dham, Sripad Goswami Maharaj gave an interview to a local journalist that went on for almost three hours.
