Connecting disciples of His Holiness Jayapataka Swami
Dear God-brothers / God-sisters,
Hare Krishna! Please accept our humble obeisances. All glories to Srila
Prabhupada. All glories to Srila Gurudev.
Following a short update below on Srila Gurudev`s health and activities in
the past few weeks, there are two requests addressed to your goodself.
Guru Maharaj has been very active in Mayapur. As you may already know that
the ILS (International Leadership Sanga) of ISKCON was held for the first
time in Mayapur Dhama between the 10th - 17th Feb 2012. Gurudev actively
participated in the ILS sessions. Many leaders across the globe participated
in the ILS. The ILS meetings and seminars inspired all the participants.
GBC meetings continued right after the ILS (International Leadership
Sanga). Despite stress and lack of rest Gurumaharaj enthusiastically
participated in the lengthy discussions and meetings.
Gurumahraj's leg infection appeared again due to stress and lack of rest,
with the intensive meeting schedules and preaching engagements. By the mercy
of Sri Sri Radha Madhava, Guru Maharaj's care team were able to treat the
same with out any antibiotics.
Though He was getting tired after these hectic schedules, he was always
happy to meet and help devotees and was specially concerned about devotee
care. Devotees mentioned that Gurudev`s speech is much clearer now. Some
remarked that His Holiness is very much dedicated to Srila Prabhuapada and
his mission. He gets up early hours and takes therapies and proceeds to
GBC meetings. Gurumaharaja's health is in good condition now.
Gaura Purnima Festival Adhivas went on well and the Kirtan Mela is on
and all are in spiritual ecstasy to participate in the Navadvipa mandala
We wish you all a very Happy Gaura Purnima and a Krishna Conscious Gaurabda!
After the Gaura Purnima festival, Gurudev would be joining the South Indian
Safari at a few important holy places.
This year, the Most Blessed Event, the "Sri Vyasa Puja Mahotsav" of our
dear Guru Maharaja falls on the 3rd April 2012.
