Diary of GM, Gaura Purnima festival

Dear Devotees,

Please accept my humble obeisances.
All glories to Sri Guru and Sri Gauranga!

Guru Maharaja spent the Gaura Purnima festival in association of his
servants and loving disciples, mostly those who stay here assisting him in
his therapy and few of those who came only for this occassion. Guru Maharaja
participated in temple programs, yajna and abisheka to the Deity of Lord
Caitanya. After the speech of Svavas Prabhu, temple president of ISKCON LA,
Guru Maharaja gave morning Srimad Bhagavatam class in the temple that was
attended mostly by the community devotees. Guru Maharaja also gave the
evening class in the temple that was attended by many devotees, friends and
visitors. Guru Maharaja was talking about the glorious advent of Lord
Caitanya in this world. After class Guru Maharaja was participating in huge
and ecstatic kirtan surrounded by many devotees. Guru Maharaj was trying to
dance in all his capacity and that was the source of bliss for all devotees
around him. Although his legs and arms needed support for making a move, his
face and eyes were showing that his heart is dancing in the ocean of love
for Lord Caitanya and affection for the devotees. After that Guru Maharaja
went to honour prasadam in prasadam hall.

Gaurpurnima with HH JPS at Juhu Bombay

15-Mar-09, Report by Teja Gaurangi dd

In the morning at around 10 am Guru Maharaja went to the swimming pool,
which is about 15 minutes drive from the hospital. He was taken for
physiotherapy in water and was accompanied by Dr Chacko (Bhaktivedanta
Hospital physiotherapist), Dr Acyutananda Prabhu and his servants. Guru
Maharaja was taken in 3 feet depth inside the water. He was able to float on
his back which strengthens his back muscles, and was able to walk in the
water with minimal support. He was in the pool for about half an hour. It
seems it was a good physiotherapy.

After the swimming pool Guru Maharaja went to New Bombay, for the
celebration of Gaura Purnima by the devotees there. With the help of a few
servants Guru Maharaja performed the aroti to Sri Sri Gaura-Nitai Deities,
and the part of the abisheka as well. After that he gave a class about the
appearence and childhood pastimes of Lord Caitanya. Then he took his
prasadam lunch cooked by few of his female disciples from South India,
coordinated by his his personal cook Ivesvara dasa. After lunch he gave
darshan to the devotees who came there.

your servant,

11-Mar-09, Report from Teja Gaurangi dd

Guru Maharaja celebrated the most auspicious day of Gaura Purnima in ISKCON
Juhu temple. We arrived there in the afternoon. Guru Maharaja took a short
rest and prepared himself for the lecture that started at 5 pm. He recieved
a warm welcome from the assembled devotees and visitors. He was talking
about Lord Caitanya’s appearence in the house of Jagannatha Mishra. Then he
was explaining about the inner reasons of Lord Caitanya’s appearence in this
material world by telling a story of Rukmini Devi’s talk to Lord Krishna in
the spiritual world, where she was revealing to Lord Krishna her deep
feelings of love for Him, after what Lord Krishna decided to come in the
form of His own devotee in order to taste that same feeling of love, which
His devotees have for Him.

HH JPS attends Gaurpurnima festival at ISKCON JUHU temple-Mumbai.

Dear devotees,
Dandavat pranams

This Gaurpurnima festival at ISKCON JUHU in Mumbai, was not a normal
festival at all, for the first time they have HH Jayapataka Swami as a
special guest,  since His Holiness never missed any Gaurpurnima Festival
since ISKCON Mayapur was founded in India. This year was the exception.

The temple was fully packed, all were waiting for the arrival of
Gurumaharaja in the afternoon for the lecture and then for the Maha
abhisheka. HH JPS was in Mayapur for the festival opening ceremony and for
the Panca tattva Mahaabisheka that is held each 5 years. But was not for the
appearance day of Lord Gauranga as he was taking treatments in Bombay.
Therefore this time  it was scheduled to participate as a guest in one of
the most important  temples of Radha Krishna in the world as is the JUHU
temple in the cosmoplitan city of India.
