HH Romapada Swami in Houston June 2010

His Holiness Romapada Swami Maharaja arrived in College Station in the early afternoon of a hot summer day in Texas after a long 90 minute drive. After his arrival, without spending any time to rest after the long drive in the fierce summer heat, Maharaja immediately commenced his services. The first ceremony on the agenda was the Abhishek (ceremonious holy bath) of the Deities. Maharaja performed the Abhishek to the accompaniment of melodious kirtan performed by the devotees. After the Abhishek was completed and the Deities were being dressed, Maharaja commenced his ‘Deity Welcoming’ lecture..

Sri Radha Nila Madhava, ISKCON Houston

Srila Romapada Swami was in Houston from Jan 8 to 13th 2013 for the GBC meetings. As I am reminiscing about his visit and writing this article, it's been 2.5-3 weeks since Maharaja was here and he has already finished GBC meetings, visited a few cities, attended his Vyasa Puja event in Chicago and flown abroad for an International yatra! All for giving out mercy. Mercy from the Supreme Lord coming to us via Srila Prabhupada!

This event was attended by 125 devotees that came from various parts of the United States, Canada and India.
