If we have faith in the Spiritual Master and Krishna,
everything becomes very simple.
To cross an ocean you need a boat, a captain and favorable winds.
The boat is the human form of life, the captain is the Spiritual Master and the winds are the Vedas.
The great spiritual masters has crossed the great ocean of material existence - on the boat of transcendental knowledge.
Last weekend was the celebration for my Guru Maharaja's Vyasapuja. Vyasapuja is what we call the birthday celebration of our spiritual master. This year Maharaja turned 59 years old.
The celebration took place at Radhadesh - a huge temple and community in Belgium.
The weekend was planned so that in addition to the celebration of the appearence-day, there was also initiation for new members of our spiritual family.
I was so fortunate to be engaged in seva during my stay. I was asked to take part of decorating the altar. What a blessing.
I came to the pojari-room at 5 in the morning, and we brought all the flowers and other deco for the altar.
|Here is the result|
|Gauravani mataji mad this ecstatic |
birthday cake for Maharaja....
After the Vyasapuja celebration, there was feast and initiations.
|Maharaja and Gaura Mohan Prabhu|
|Maharaja in extatic Kirtan|
|My husband and me|
|Gauravani mataji and me|
|7 hours of Harinam|
|Hare krishna explosion!|
|Maharaja and Kavichandra Swami|

So the weekend was a blast! Can't wait until next year to see my god-sisters and god-brothers again.
