Article written by Rukmini Devi Dasi Simhachalam, Germany: “We’re at the edge of the world,” Maharaja commented, “just beyond those hills, after those last trees, it becomes ethereal.” At the German farm, one definitely gets the feeling that the rest of the world just doesn’t exist – except via the internet. It’s a befitting home to [...]

By Rukmini devi dasi With the intensity of the Vyasa puja and Queensday gone by, devotees gradually journeyed back home. The days that followed at Radhadesh mellowed to a more gentle pace. In the late morning, we would gather in different places – sometimes outside in the Radhadesh gardens or an inner room of the [...]
By Rukmini devi dasi Amsterdam is the capital city of the material world. On the Queen’s birthday, people flood the streets, taking the celebration of such a culture to the max. Slicing through the craziness was a group of two-hundred Vaikuntha men and women. With bright, smiling faces and dressed in flowing orange, they danced [...]
By Rukmini devi dasi Great personalities are like trees. Their roots penetrate deep into scriptures, seeking nourishment. Hence they develop overpowering compassion. Their burning desire is to give to others profusely, without holding back. To do this, they are willing to tolerate any difficulties, as trees generally do. Sun or snow, the tree accepts its [...]
By Rukmini devi dasi Despite the previous late night (27 April), at mangal arati the temple room was packed to capacity with devotees from Croatia, Czech, Germany, Slovakia, Norway, Sweden, Serbia, England, Australia and South Africa. At the class that followed later, Maharaja spoke from the fifth canto of Srimad Bhagavatam on the relationship between varnasrama and devotional service. He [...]
By Rukmini devi dasi Looking like something out of ‘Lord of the Rings’, the majestic Radhadesh castle emerges stoically from the lush green countryside. The grey stone quickly gives way to the exquisite darshan of Sri Sri Radha Gopinatha. If Radhadesh’s natural richness doesn’t leave you breatheless then the charming smile of Gopinatha most certainly will. [...]
Kadamba Kanana Swami spent the last week in Korsnas Gard (Krsna’s Garden) at the BBT headquarters in Sweden, close to Scandinavia’s capital, Stockholm. Maharaja gave daily Bhagavatam classes there in the morning and in the evenings, he made his way to the Hare Krsna Centre in the middle of Stockholm to participate in other programs. [...]
Kadamba Kanana Swami spent the first few days following Durban Ratha Yatra in recuperation, taking occasional walks along Durban’s beachfront and also connecting with the local devotees. On Thursday (4 April), he gave the morning Srimad Bhagavatam class, highlighting how the Bhagavatam is the essence of all Vedic scriptures. “Srimad Bhagavatam is complete knowledge of [...]
The Durban Ratha Yatra festival has evolved into one of the biggest, if not the biggest, of its kind outside of India. In its momentous 25th year of existence, the freshly incarnated festival was hosted under the motto Culturally many – Spiritually one and was pioneered by Indradyumna Swami. The Festival of Chariots, as it [...]
Kadamba Kanana Swami spent the last week in Cape Town, South Africa (19-27 March) and during that time participated in several preaching programs. On most days during his stay, Maharaja gave Srimad Bhagavatam classes which were rich in both philosophical depth and practical realizations: On Wednesday afternoon (20 March), Maharaja spoke at a Bhakti Yoga [...]

Difficult circumstances hindered regular updates on the blog. Not only did I not report on Maharaja’s travels for three weeks but was unable to post daily darshan of Giriraja as well. However, things have now changed and regular blogging will continue once again. We have included a slide-show depicting Maharaja’s travels from Vrndavan to Mayapur [...]
From London, Kadamba Kanana Maharaja flew via Amsterdam to India. He reached the Delhi airport early on Friday morning (22 February). After a few hours of rest at the Delhi temple, he then made his way to the Krsna Balarama Mandir in Vrndavan which was approximately 150 km away. Maharaja entered a low pace program [...]
From a snow-filled Simhachalam, Kadamba Kanana Swami made his way up north to the United Kingdom. His first stop there was in Leicester, where he stayed at the home of Puskara and Hara for two days. Using that as his base, Maharaja attended a six-hour kirtan program on Saturday afternoon (16 February) that was dedicated to [...]
For the last week, Kadamba Kanana Maharaja stayed at the German farm, Simhachalam. This project is unique in the Hare Krsna movement in that it is the only temple that solely and opulently worships a massive Prahlada-Nrsimha deity. For many years, the temple has been stagnant due to a lack of devotees staying at the farm. The main [...]
For the last three months, Kadamba Kanana Swami has been travelling around the world accompanied by the Supreme Lord in the form of a Govardhana Sila, called Giriraja Govinda. You can now catch a personal darshan of the Lord on a daily basis. For this purpose, a new item has been added to the menu [...]
Arrival in Czech Continuing with the tour of Europe, Kadamba Kanana Swami made his way from Germany to the Czech Republic where he was warmly welcomed by an enthusiastic harinama party at the Prague temple. The visit began with the weekly Sunday program. Maharaja started-off with an ecstatic kirtan which was followed by a lecture [...]
