Navadvipa-Puri-Dhama-Mahayatra -- By Swami Gaurangapada



Just concluding our very ecstatic Yatra in Jagannatha Puri Dhama

today. 5-days in the 9-islands of Navadvipa and Ekachakra Dhama, 4

days in Jagannatha Puri Dhama and 1-day at Gangasagara dhama of Lord

Kapiladeva with 30 devotees. Today somehow we could find the well of

Shrila Paramananda Puri and could drink the water which Lord Gauranga

decared would certainly grant us Krishna-prema. So so happy to be

able to be at the most Holy places of the pastimes of Lord Gauranga

Mahaprabhu. Wish I can always remain here. Returning to Mumbai on the

3rd morning. I have prayed and begged at the lotus feet of Lords

Nityananda-Gauranga and the Gauranga-Bhakta-Vrinda at all the Holy

places to award my disciples pure love for Lord Gauranga especially

at Shrila Thakura Bhaktivinoda's home in Navadvipa and Lord

Gauranga's personal room Gambhira in Puri.

Swami_Gaurangapada: You look just like a Goswami

Devotee : i'm sorry swamaji, i will turn it off

Swami_Gaurangapada: no you can have it on

Devotee : feel like a chandala

Swami_Gaurangapada: I will not be able to view it

Devotee : you are the only one looking at my scary face

Swami_Gaurangapada: I was reminded of Shrila Thakura Bhaktivinoda.

Devotee : now your telling a fib, i am the most retched on the planet

Swami_Gaurangapada: We visited his home in Godruma

Swami_Gaurangapada: Everyone cried there. His presence is so strong


Devotee : i am so happy, i trully wish i could be blessed and travel with you to the holy places

Swami_Gaurangapada: I would become an insect there in some life.

Shrila BSSTP's room is just next. and there is the balcony where

Thakura got vision of the Lord Gauranga's birthplace and revealed

Mayapura Dhama to this world.

Devotee : i pray daily that shri nityananda will be merciful to me and allow me to return to india one last time

Devotee : such a blessing to stand on such a holy place, you are so fortunate, trully shri nityananda has blessed you richly, many lifetimes you have served him to be such a pure soul
