Connecting disciples of His Holiness Jayapataka Swami
Please accept our humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada. All glories to Guru Maharaja.
Guru maharaja left Mayapura on 23rd to Bangladesh. As he was leaving Mayapura many devotees gathered at his residence to see him. After his breakfast he gave darshan and maha to everyone. Before he got into his car, he took darshan of Srila Prabhupada and Sri Sri Radha Madhava and Their Asta Sakhis, Sri Sri Prahlad Narasimhadeva and Sri Sri Panca Tattva deities. This is his first time visit to Bangladesh after the stroke. Many thousands of devotees were eagerly waiting to see him. HH Bhakti Purushottam Maharaja commented, "As Guru Maharaja is not traveling to different places as he used to do before so the devotees are like fish out of water deprived of Guru Maharaja's association." Guru maharaja celebrated Balarama Purnima (appearance day of Lord Balarama) with Bangladesh devotees.
Guru Maharaja returned from Bangaladesh yesterday night at 9pm to Sri Mayapur. Guru Maharaja went to Rupa Sanatan Mandir, Jessore. On the way he stopped at Haridaspur temple which is at the border of India and Bangladesh. A team of devotees including Acyutananda prabhu, Ganga prabhu, Mahavaraha prabhu, Madhava Kanta prabhu, Rucirangada prabhu along with other Mayapur devotees traveled with Guru Maharaja to Bangladesh.
In Bangladesh he gave a massive initiation ceremony and did other preaching programs. The initiation was very well organised. Sarvodoya Gaura prabhu from Mayapur Nama-Hatta had gone to Bangladesh one month ago to prepare this initiation program. HH Bhakti Purusottama Swami Maharaja and HH Gauranga Prema Swami Maharaja were also present assisting Guru Maharaja in his initiation and preaching activities. Many hundreds of devotees took initiation everyday during this visit. They had built a new swimming pool for Guru Maharaja's water theraphy.
Upon his arrival to Mayapur, Guru Maharaja took dinner at his quarters and took rest.
Your humble servants,
Vaikunthapati Das and Ratnavali DD
