Sri Kishor Kishori, ISKCON Chicago

His Holiness Romapada Swami Maharaja's December 2008 visit to Chicago was one of the best experiences for all of the devotees!

Every day, everyone looked forward to Maharaja's classes and his association. From the virtual pilgrimages to Sri Mayapur dham, Radha Kunda and Syama Kunda, to lectures on Srimad Bhagavatam, it was truly a week of happiness!

Sri Radha Govinda, New York

Today, an increasingly popular trend, among those seeking stress-free, peaceful and simple lives, far away from the chaos of modern society, is to flock (during weekends) to the hills and countryside of places like upstate New York. For materialists, temporary relief from mundane miseries comes through change of circumstances. But, for a Krishna conscious person, permanent relief from mundane miseries comes through a change of consciousness. Such a Krishna conscious devotee, who is an embodiment of simple life, is always happy and peaceful in all circumstances, be it in the serene environ of upstate NY or in the chaotic conditions of Brooklyn. A weekend spent in association with such a saint cannot be compared to any benediction in all the three worlds.
