  • 20th World Tour takes shape of Srila Bhakti Sundar Govinda Dev-Goswami Maharaj. It is now increasingly likely His Divine Grace will go to London, Italy, Russia and probably Ukraine, starting in the latter part of July.
    South Africa, Venezuela and Turkey are included in the extended Tour in that Srila Gurudev has already delegated sannyasis to these countries to directly represent him.
    For further details of local itineraries of each tour destination, please see our 'World Tours' web-page.

Dear devotees and friends,

Due respects to you all. Please know that especially in regard to personal mail to Srila Bhakti Sundar Govinda Dev-Goswami Maharaj or mail requiring his holy attention, some delays may be inevitable.

Most of you know Srila Gurudev shows fluctuating health, also he personally takes care of the whole Mission in all its facets, so it is not possible that every day he can answer letters, and when he does, there is only so much that can be answered in a day. We try our best to see that all of Gurudev's mail is carefully presented and responded to, as possible and according to his discretion, while not rushing or overwhelming His Divine Grace in any way.

We pray for your understanding and patience, and we always try to get back to you as soon as possible.

Sincerely and respectfully,
-The Office Team
