HH Romapada Swami in Mayapur Feb 2009

Srila Romapada Swami Maharaja arrived in Mayapur on the 9th of February. During the following two weeks he was quite busy due to the GBC meetings. As the chairman for the upcoming year, Maharaja has a lot of responsibility to carry, and it was quite impressive to see Maharaja enthusiastically cover all the tasks and already planning ahead for His next visit to Mayapur and asking us to do certain preparations for it. He also gave a Srimad Bhagavatam lecture.

When Srila Jaya Pataka Swami Maharaja arrived in Mayapur from Bombay, Maharaja went to greet Him along with his God Brothers and Sisters and other devotees. Srila Jaya Pataka Swami Maharaja was very happy to have such a warm welcome and he said that he feels at home in Mayapur.

What can we take with us from the yatra?

HH Romapada Swami stressed three points during the final days lecture at Panihatti:
1) The eagerness to receive Krsna consciousness
2) Material detachment
3) Service attitude

The above three are present in the personalities we have heard about during this yatra, and those personalities were empowered by Caitanya Mahaprabhu in different ways. Maharaja first referred to the banyan tree under which Nityananda Prabhu was sitting near the ghat.
