While driving back to Mayapur Guru Maharaja shared couple of very interesting informations with us. He said today he traveled through all the nine islands by car. Then he was describing how he traveled all the nine islands simply by visiting all the four parikrama parties. He has got the whole map of Navadwip in his mind. Our discussion led to the mahasanga of all the parikrama parties which will take place on the 14th March especially the place where they are all going to meet. At that point Guru Maharaja said that we could have even organised all the parikrama parties to get together at the land next to our Panca Tattva Hall. He said Srila Bhaktivinode Thakur has described in Bhakti Bhavataranga, how he saw the lila of Lord Caitanya and his entire sankirtan party transformed into Krsna and gopis performing rasa lila right here at Antardwipa. He continued that actually Srila Prabhupada has said that our Iskcon Mayapur Radha Madhava temple hall is located in Rudradwip, Pancatattva Temple Hall is located in Antardwip and Nrshingadev altar is in the border of both the islands. As we were listening to this wonderful discussion we saw a big gust of wind blowing all over. We were passing Mayapur Nama Hatta Building when this happened. Some small trees got uprooted,branches and twigs fell all over the road leading to Iskcon Mayapur.Our car was in the middle of whirlpool of sands, dirts and plastic bags. After seeing this violent storm, GM requested us to call Sankarshan Nitai Prabhu and find out how are the parikrama devotees are doing at the camp site? After 10 mins Sankarshan Nitai Prabhu called us and said that some of tents at the camp site were destroyed by the strong wind and some parikrama devotees been ferried back to Iskcon Mayapur.
Your Servant,Maha Varaha D
We departed to Iskcon Mayapur at 5.10pm.
