HH Romapada Swami

On the 16th, 17th, and 18th of March 2009, His Holiness Romapada Swami visited the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign (UIUC or U of I) in Champaign, Illinois. Usually, he is able to make it down here once or twice a semester and it had been four months since his last visit. Whenever he comes down to do a “college program,” I see a different side of Maharaja. His tone is a little more casual, there is a slight lean to his stance, an intellectual sparkle in his eye. There is no doubt that Maharaja is quite the erudite scholar (both materially and spiritually) and it tends to come out in his visits at U of I.
