Parikrama to Devananda Gaudiya Matha -- Navadvipa March 18, 2005
Today, with over 600 Western devotees and about 400 Indian devotees, Srila Narayana Maharaja visited Devananda Gaudiya Matha, the temple of his Gurudeva, Srila Bhaktiprajnana Kesava Gosvami Maharaja. There he performed arati at his Gurudeva's samadhi, and he also performed arati at the samadhi of Srila Bhaktivedanta Vamana Maharaja. After taking darsana of the Deities Sri Sri Radha-vinodabihari, Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu, Sri Varahadeva and Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakura, Srila Maharaja spoke for about 20 minutes about his relationship with his Guru Maharaja and the Gaudiya Vedanta Samiti. After Srila Maharaja's talk and a short kirtana, a few thousand Bengali devotees who were residing at Devananda Gaudiya Matha joined his procession to the Ganges and then back to his new matha.
