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.

HH Romapada Swami in St. Louis Dec 2007

After a very hectic tour of Chicago, Guru Maharaja continued his whirlwind tour onward to St. Louis. One of the highlights of the visit was the installation of Sri Sri Nitai Navadvipacandra (the Deity Forms of Lord Chaitanya and Lord Nityananda) at the home of his disciples, Yamuna Jivana das & Sri Radhika devi dasi. Guru Maharaja extended the transcendental nectar of Radha Kunda and Shyama Kunda in St. Louis as well.
