After arriving on Thursday evening, Maharaj gave the Srimad Bhagavatam class on Friday morning. Friday is traditionally the day for the ‘Dinner Club’ and bhajan evening, and Kadamba Kanana Swami was happy to join in and enliven us with his expert singing.

House program at Gita Govinda’s 

On Friday afternoon, we arrived in the lovely home of Gita Govinda located in Rotterdam. She invited Kadamba Kanana Swami to attend this home program and it was also her birthday. She invited all of her family members to attend the program. The house was amazing, the bhajans were very inspiring, the prasadam was heavenly and all the organizers were very expert in making us very comfortable. The bhajans were powerful and Kadamba Kanana Swami spoke in Dutch on general aspects of Krsna consciousness. Afterwards, we all joined in to relish the nice foodstuffs that were prepared. There was nasi, salad, drink, cake and fruits. We had a great time talking to all the guests and it became very late before we hit the bed. The next morning, after staying overnight in the house of Gita Govinda, we prepared to leave for the next festival: The Ratha Yatra festival in Den Haag.

Ratha Yatra in Den Haag

On Saturday morning, it rained like anything and when we arrived in Den Haag it was still pouring down. But the prediction was that it would clear up later in the day, so with bright spirits the parade commenced through the streets of Den Haag. Halfway through the parade, the sun starting shining. It was as if Jagannatha was happy with our efforts and awarded us with some sunshine. Jagadananda prabhu lead the singing in the first half of the procession and Kadamba Kanana Swami took over for the second half. With the expert guidance of the police and volunteers, the procession arrived at the festival square after two hours where the next part of the programs continued.

At 17h30 we made way again for Amsterdam, happy and fulfilled.

The talk was well received and Kadamba Kanana Swami really got into it. Check out the class because it was really enlivening, “Thirty-nine billion! You couldn’t spend it if you wanted to…”
