Being Present: An individual approached Maharaja to convey a message and Maharaja immediately asked, “Where are your shoes?” The individual was surprised because she was unaware that she did not have her shoes on and was lost in her own world while Maharaja showed by a classic example how to be present all the time!

ISKCON Seattle

We were very fortunate to have the association of HH Romapada Swami Maharaja from April 3rd to 7th here in Seattle. The excitement and eagerness to meet and serve Maharaja was evident amongst the devotees even before his arrival. Maharaja gave a very nice discourse on the various incarnations of Godhead and in particular the avatar of Rama and the essential principle of equanimity shown by Lord Ramachandra while acting as an ideal king.
