On Friday, November 10, Guru Maharaja and His Holiness Radhanath Swami attended a Vyasa-puja program for Guru Maharaja at the home of Krishna Kirtan Prabhu and Mother Kandarpa Manjari. The devotees had worked very hard to create a spiritual atmosphere, with the Deities and decorations creating a Vrndavana-like mood in the temple room.

The program was small, intimate, and very sweet. After a welcoming and foot-bathing ceremony, Radhanath Swami spoke eloquently about Guru Maharaja’s purity of service to Srila Prabhupada. Thereafter the devotees spoke their heartfelt appreciations of Guru Maharaja, and Guru Maharaja shared his thoughts and realizations with the devotees.

After guru-puja, a sumptuous feast was served to all the devotees. Guru Maharaja and His Holiness Radhanath Swami then opened gifts and enjoyed nectarean personal exchanges with the devotees.

Here are some photographs from the occasion.
