Dear Devotees,

Please accept my most respectful obeisances.

All glories to our beloved Srila Gurudev Srila Bhakti Sundar Govinda Dev-Goswami Maharaj who is rejuvenating the whole of Mauritius.

Here is some news from Mauritius:

On the 7th of February at early morning, there were another nineteen new devotees who surrendered at the lotus feet of Srila Gurudev for initiations. Srila Gurudev gave inspiring lectures before and after the ceremony.

In the afternoon there was a very grand programme at our new Preaching Center at Khoyratty where thousands of people attended. The National Television interviewed Srila Gurudev and gave lectures that impressed many people present. His divine Grace's speech was basically on trinadi api sunichena taror api sahisnuna....

Sripad Goswami Maharaj and Sripad Siddhanti Maharaj also gave special speeches that made everyone present realise they would be in the mode of ignorance if they think that languages are barriers to practise spiritual life. They were astonished to hear some verses quoted in Sanskrit in the lectures of Their Holiness'. And lastly Sripad Narayan Maharaj of Mauritius also gave a speech in our Creole language.

Finally Srila Gurudev accepted our request for a Guru Puja and almost all people came for darshan at the lotus feet of Srila Gurudev and offered Him some dakshina. This was followed with a full feast of Prasadam.

We are all very happy that the programme has been very successful with the blessings of Sri Guru and Sri Gauranga.

Jay Srila Gurudev Srila Bhakti Sundar Govinda Dev-Goswami Maharaj, ki jay!

Your insignificant servant
