Every day spent in the London Math these days is a wonderful day to remember because of the presence of our dear Srila Gurudev, Srila Bhakti Sundar Govinda Dev-Goswami Maharaj, and so many devotees from around the world who have come for darshan. The following pictures depict a so-called normal day at the temple, which for each one of us really translates as an extraordinary day....

The devotees gather in the darshan room twice a day, morning and afternoon, to be within the holy presence of the pure Vaishnava. So many people have flocked in that there is barely enough space to hold everyone!
Srila Gurudev is pleased in the company of the devotees, and displays different moods. He is often playful and light hearted, joking and accepting offerings with a smile.
Other times he will answer questions or recite slokas and elaborate on a specific topic. Here he is looking at an Italian edition of the Srimad Bhagavad Gita.
Srila Gurudev obliged the requests of some devotees to sign their copies of various holy literature, making the books even more priceless and the devotees extremely happy!
The devotees are always ready for ecstatic Kirttans, and they sometimes go on tirelessly for a long time.
Despite the limited space, everybody is eager to join in, chant, and be happy.
There are many seated singing bhajans, and the temple room is occupied throughout most of the day.
With the presence of so many sannyasis and senior devotees, classes are varied and interesting as always.
