All Glory to Sri Sri Guru and Gauranga
Reporting today from the beautiful, charming SCSAshram Italia. Here so many Vaishnavas from all over the world are assembled at the holy lotus feet of Srila Gurudev in his own 'Villa Govinda' where Sri Sri Guru-Gauranga-Gandharvva-Govindasundarjiu and Giridhari-Gopaljiu are constantly being worshipped and glorified with natural affection. His Divine Grace is extremely pleased with Krishna Kanta Didi, Munindra Mohan Prabhu and his devoted serving group. Together they presented this very palatial Ashram [in the Milano countryside] to Srila Gurudev, demonstrating exemplary service under life threatening circumstances, thereby completely capturing his heart.
Yesterday we observed the holy Disappearance Day of Srila Param Guru Maharaj, Srila B.R. Sridhar Dev-Goswami Maharaj under the direction of his most favourite and beloved associate-servitor His Divine Grace Srila Gurudev, Srila B.S. Govinda Dev-Goswami Maharaj.
We are all counting our blessings in this super-surcharged atmosphere with the remembrance of Sri Vrindavan.
