Latest Report from Kadamba Kanana Swami: Sadhana Retreat 2010, Germany
We had a nice weekend in the Sadhana Retreat in Germany.( all in German) Finally the weather was good. We spent our time hearing and chanting. we especially got in to Jagannatha Puri. We had nice bhajans out on the field, on top of the mountain on the bank of the lake in the sunshine. And we heard about Lord Caitanya in Jagannatha Puri and devotees performed the pastime of Maharaja Prataparudra who finally got the darsana of Lord Caitanya, while the king was dressed as a common man, he entered the garden where Caitanya Mahaprabhu was lying down after dancing for hours in Ratha Yatra and after honoring prasada, then the king massaged the Lord’s lotus feet and recited verses from the five chaters in SB 10th Canto dealing with Rasa Lila. It was the suitable place, in the Jagannatha Vallabha gardens, because these gardens are non-different from Vrndavana.
