From London our trip brought us to Leicester. After the morning program, with Maharaja giving the Srimad Bhagavatam class with the topic: “Vrindavana, a state of conciousness”, it was off to Birmingham, where a 24-hour kirtana took place. Guests like Sacinandana Maharaja and Madhava Prabhu made for action in the kirtana and Kadamba Kanana Maharaja once again turned raga into rock and got almost everybody to dance.
The day after the 24-hour kirtana, Maharaja held an initiation ceremony in Leicester. The initiates were Upendra and Aatish, who were given the names Bali Mardana Dasa and Gurudasa Dasa.
