His Holiness Romapada Swami Maharaja with great kindness extended his enlivening association to about 60 Indore devotees at Supreme Lord’s own abode from 30th January to 1st February 2009, speaking on Srimad Bhagavatam Canto 1 Chapter 14 & 15.
Maharaja was himself involved in proper organization of this seminar and was concerned that the attendees of the seminar got proper care and assistance, since it was too cold during that part of the year. But for himself, he did not even know the arrangements for his prasadam and other basic needs!
KATWA & YAJIGRAM
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.
