Sri Radha Govinda, New York temple

We were so happy to be in the association of HH Romapada Swami during the weekend of Feb 5-6, 2011 in New York. HH Romapada Swami has his base in ISKCON, Brooklyn. Because of his extensive travel and on-going commitment to an increasing number of services and persons, Maharaja’s duration of stay in New York has greatly reduced.

Sri Radha Govinda in ISKCON Brooklyn, NY

I was at a program with Maharaja at his disciple’s home in New Rochelle, NY. As usual the kirtans (devotional singing and dancing) were ecstatic!

HH Romapada Swami in NY Jan 2009

Katwa is one of the most important places in Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu's lila as this is where He took sannyas (renounced order of life) to deliver the fallen conditioned souls. Maharaja started the lecture by showing an aerial view of the locations of these two holy places as well as Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu's journey to Katwa, a major metropolitan city during His time.

HH Romapada Swami in NY Ratha Yatra (An Old Picture)

New York Ratha Yatra is a special occasion for many devotees all over the world. I remember His Holiness Romapada Swami Maharaja mentioning in one lecture how he had to miss the NY Ratha yatra once against his wishes, because of his having to attend the GBC (Governing Body Commission of ISKCON) meetings. It is indeed a very special event for him as he has been regularly attending it for many years!
