HH Romapada Swami

His Holiness Romapada Swami blessed the devotees of the Twin Cities area (Minneapolis/St Paul and suburbs, MN) with his invigorating association from Aug 6-10th this year. With Maharaja’s arrival at midday on a Thursday, the assembled devotees requested an istagosthi and question & answer style program for the evening. Maharaja complied, sharing insights from the recent ‘Building Bridges” conference in Washington DC as well as other highlights from the perspective of global ISKCON. Toward the end of the evening questions and answers prevailed and Maharaja again showed his awesome dexterity in delivering transcendental knowledge in clear, practical, and digestible sutras-like morsels of advice.

Lakes in Minneapolis

Minnesota, located in the middle of the United States along its northern border with Canada, is known as the land of 10,000 lakes. In fact, there are so many lakes that the name Minnesota has its Native American origins meaning, “the sky reflected on water.” Minneapolis, the most populace city in Minnesota has a few of those 10,000 lakes within its borders.
