Kadamba Kanana Maharaja spent the last week doing various programs around Durban. On Tuesday evening he went to the nama-hatta in Umlazi, an African township in Kwa-Zulu Natal. The program practically consisted of one amazing and powerful kirtana which went on for about two hours. After the Kirtana, Maharaja gave a short talk about the incredible potency of the holy name and distributed twenty Zulu books to the local devotees.
On Wednesday he gave the morning class in the Durban temple, speaking on the topic of the auspicious occasion of Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakura’s disappearance day. After the talk he left Durban to Ladysmith, where he was to hold an evening program at the local temple. This program included a lecture, which Maharaja built on 64 quotes of Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Thakura.
After staying the night in Ladysmith, Maharaja spent the next day with meeting the devotees in Ladysmith.
In the evening, he travelled to Pietermaritzburg to give a program at the ISKCON centre there. Maharaja led a beautiful bhajana followed by a class on the Bhagavad Gita where he explained that by surrendering to the Lord, the Lord reciprocates by taking charge of our lives.
On Friday, Maharaja went to a home program in Hillcrest, near Durban. The lecture he gave once again centered around the quotes of Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakura and lead to an open discussion.
The last program during the stay in Durban took place in the new Jagannatha Puri Temple in Phoenix. In this evening program, besides leading a powerful kirtana, Maharaja gave a presentation on the Bangladesh tour which he went on with a group of devotees just last month.
