All glories to Sri Guru and Sri Gauranga

Srila Bhakti Sundar Govinda Dev-Goswami Maharaj's

Visit to the village of Arjjun Pukur

22 January 2007

After visiting some of our local rice fields one afternoon, Srila Gurudev, His Divine Grace Srila Bhakti Sundar Govinda Dev-Goswami Maharaj, spontaneously decided to visit Santosh Krishna Prabhu and his family, who live in the village of Arjjun Pukur, situated about 12km from Nabadwip.

Every year, the day after Srila Gurudev's Vyasa Puja, Santosh Krishna Prabhu and his family host a grand gathering of Hari-katha and Sankirttan, and provide breakfast Prasadam for approximately 5,000 pilgrims on their way to Srila Gurudev's holy birthplace, Sripat Bamunpara.

More friends and family gather to take this opportunity of Srila Gurudev's darshan.

The area of Arjjun Pukur is very near to Nadanghat, where Srila Gurudev stayed for some time in his youth.

After some time, Srila Gurudev leaves to return to Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Math.

The sun sets over our Simjali rice fields on the return trip home.
