Our trip to England started in the Bhaktivedanta Manor, where Maharaja gave an amazing class about the Caitanya Caritamrita, which dealt with the inner reasons of Caitanya Mahaprabhu’s appearance. Based in the Manor, Maharaja attended different programs in London.
He went to London’s “Matchless Gifts” program centre, which is a store-front with a small temple room in the cellar. The whole atmosphere there reminded one of the first days of Iskcon, with hippies playing different melodies and Srila Prabhupada singing the classic Hare Krishna melody, which was done this time by Kadamba Kanana Swami.
On Saturday night, Maharaja went to the famous Harinama in Soho Street. He first gave a lecture in the Radha Krishna temple there, and then the ecstatic group of vaishnavas made their way through the inner city of London. The response was amazing, with many people joining the Harinama, dancing and singing.
