Sri Kishor Kishori, ISKCON Chicago

Thursday, March 13th 2008. Venue: Flight to Chicago, USA
After completing the GBC meetings in Mayapur and the tour of South India, Maharaja flew back to Chicago, USA. On his arrival, Maharaja shared how he was looking forward to his visit to Chicago. Normally, after a very busy schedule, if a materialistic person were to sit in a long distance flight, he would think and boast of all the so-called great things he had accomplished and convince himself that he deserved some rest. But, here is a pure devotee of the Lord who, on behalf of the Lord, moves mountains wherever he goes and when he gets time is not thinking how much he has accomplished, but is thinking how much more service there is ahead of him.

We were fortunate to spend the weekend of Feb 9-10 in NY. We arrived there Saturday morning and eagerly awaited the arrival of His Holiness Romapada Swami (Maharaja) from New Jersey that evening. Nowadays, Maharaja spends only a few days in a year in NY.

HH Romapada Swami in Guyana Jan 2008

His Holiness Romapada Swami (Maharaja) visited us here, in the Carribean islands, from Jan 7th to 17th. We received him at the airport in Georgetown, Guyana on Monday 7th at 8:30 am, in extreme rainy conditions. The rain here is probably better than the cold in NY. Because Guyana lies near the equator, the days and nights are equal - sun sets at 6 pm and rises at 6 am the entire year, with the temperature throughout the year being 78-80 degrees F..

Sri Kishor Kishori, ISKCON Chicago

Guru Maharaj's* visit to Chicago during the Christmas weekend was very inspiring for everyone present. Although the inclement weather delayed his plane by multiple hours, Guru Maharaja came in to a packed program of close to 100 devotees eagerly awaiting to hear from him. After a very, very sweet "Jaya Radha Madhava" invocation, Guru Maharaja spoke a prelude class from Srimad Bhagavatam on the theme of "Effective Hearing." He commented that all the houses were decorated with lights for Christmas and here the devotees sitting all around and along the stairway were like even better decorations to have in one's house.
