All Glories to Sri Guru and Gauranga!!!

I'm very glad to write about Russia. We just now came into town for a bit and I wanted to write again as service to you all. Yesterday was Param Guru Maharaja's disappearance festival and there was a wonderful all day long program. Srila Gurudeva graced the devotees with morning darshan in the temple room. (There are so many devotees not fitting inside and Gurudeva wanted everyone to hear so He said He would go to the temple room from now on every morning). Is that amazing or what. The service mood we are all striving for. He spoke for one hour and everyone's hearts just melted hearing about the pastimes between Gurudeva and Param Guru Maharaja. We all fasted and had one Govardhan Hill like feast in the afternoon. Srutasrava Prabhu and Sureswari dd initiated somasa prasadam and we rolled and filled almost 500 somosas for all the devotees! It was great service. The outside kitchen at the temple is grand. The Russian devotees preparing all the meals there. Gurudeva then also spoke for over an hour in the afternoon and there was arati and offering to Param Guru Maharaj. It was ever so sweet.

Today this morning we had a 'clean the beach' program at the edge of the Baltic Sea. The local media came and interviewed. Everyone is busy always and so much service.

Gurudeva is always out walking around and sitting on the veranda overlooking the sea. Tirtha Maharaj and Acharya Maharaj are ecstatically enlivening everyone with lectures and kirttanas. Last night I went into the temple room and it was filled with devotees listening to Tirtha Maharaj and then as I went outside, there were even more devotees around Acharya Maharaj. It's incredible!

Well my dear godbrothers and godsisters. I offer you all my dundavats and I will write as often as I can. Glad to hear many are using this forum and all the nice replies.
Humbly yours,
Tunga Prema devi dasi
