Sripad Narayan Maharaj of Mauritius stayed for most of his time in Sydney at Srila Gurudev's small centre at the house of Muralidhar Prabhu. Bimalananda Prabhu originally from Bengal came to visit for these first few days. Bimalananda Prabhu now lives near Sri Govinda Dham, Uki.

The first public program was held at a local Hindu Temple. Sri Sri Radha Govinda are worshipped there. We also took Sriman Mahaprabhu and placed Him at the centre of the programme. Sripad Narayan Maharaj sang beautifully and spoke constantly to the guests about the glories of Srila Bhakti Sundar Govinda Dev-Goswami Maharaj.

Numerous people invited Sripad Narayan Maharaj to their home to hold 'home programmes'. Here are pictures of some of those programmes. Without fail Maharaj's main topic within his discourses was based around the glories of Sri Guru. He constantly talked of the need for aspiring devotees to establish a connection with the illustrious Srila Govinda Maharaj. This advice was continuously expressed to the guests, as being the way to travel safely and successfully on their spiritual path. Four different home programmes are pictured here.

Sripad Narayan Maharaj visited Sri Govinda Dham for one week. The devotees felt extremely pleased and fortunate to have his association. Maharaj will be returning to Sri Govinda Dham for one more week when he returns from his current visit to Fiji.

Maharaj has been out on Sankirtan just about every day that he has been in Australia. His consistent and enthusiastic service mood is truly inspiring for the devotees. He will always be welcomed back to Australia with great respect and opened arms.

We had two book stalls at Sydney festivals. Maharaj spoke and sang at the opening of the Diwali Hindu festival.
