Melbourne

28 Sep – 11 Oct 2013

Australia is always a country full of programs. As soon as he arrived in Melbourne, Kadamba Kanana Swami went into full-speed mode to participate in the many programs that were planned for him which included a visit to the Botanical Gardens, the university, many programs at the temple and a seminar based on the Sri Hamsaduta. It was a full schedule with lots of opportunity to hear from Maharaja. Below you can find recordings of all the classes. Video recordings were made and edited by Russel Sara and Syamachandra das.

Sydney

11 Oct – 18 Oct 2013

The next part of the Australia Experience was Sydney. Kadamba Kanana Swami arrived here on 11 October. After being fetched from the aiport by Nayanabhiram prabhu, he went to the Sydney Temple which is where he stayed. During this time, Maharaja gave the morning Srimad Bhagavatam classes. Other programs were also planned like a short discourse on Sri Hamsaduta which was similar to the seminar presented in Melbourne and he visited Wahroonga, Cronulla, Heart & Soul studio and Govinda Valley.

Cronulla 12 and 15 Oct 2013

Cronulla is more than just the beach and surfing. You have the Heart & Soul cafe and an affiliated yoga studio. Kadamba Kanana Swami was invited to give a class on yoga philosophy on 12 October. A few days later, on 15 October, he led an evening of mantra mediation and kirtan for the local yoga attendees.

Govinda Valley 15 Oct

Govinda Valley offers a peaceful and quiet environment and Maharaja took this opportunity to recuperate. On Monday, Maharaja visited a local spa for some relaxation and treatments.

On Tuesday, he visited the Valley to meet with his friends and disciples. Our family got extended again during a small and private initiation ceremony. We welcome Pritha devi dasi, Madhava dasa and Arjuna das to the family. Silpa Karini devi dasi received second initiation.

Back to India

After a very busy time in Australia, Maharaja found time to hop over to Canberra for the weekend and later on also to Brisbane. Australia is always exciting and busy. On the 28 October, Maharaja left for Vrindavan. Time for some rest and introspection in India. A Swami’s life is never quiet.
