Report by Dahani devi dasi
After his stay in Holland, Kadamba Kanana Swami travelled to Serbia and arrived at the Fruska Gauranga Summer Camp on Monday afternoon (7 July). Devotees were eagerly awaiting his visit. On day one, Maharaj gave a short seminar (two lectures) on Sri Caitanya Candramrita by Prabhodananda Sarasvati, which was accompanied by lovely bhajans.
On the second day of his stay, a Ratha Yatra festival was held in Novi Sad, the capital of the province Vojvodina. Together with Sacinandana Swami, Prahladananda Swami, Bir Krishna Goswami and Pankajangri Prabhu, Maharaj led devotees in kirtan along the town’s main streets. The ambassador of India also attended the festival. At one point, near the end of the Ratha Yatra procession, the devotees came to a square where loud music was playing on stage, so Kadamba Kanana Swami started leading a fiery kirtan and all the devotees joined it.
On day three, a ten hour kirtan took place where Maharaj sang twice – once in the morning and again in the evening. After his wonderful evening bhajan, he left us with these thoughts that just like in Bengal, where the discussion stays in the bus throughout the day although those who started it already left the bus, in the same way, we should continue to chant and pray even when he leaves us the next morning.
At three o’clock on Thursday, Maharaj departed for his next destination, Villa Vrindavan in Italy. After the kirtan weekend in Italy, Maharaj visited Radhadesh and participated in the kirtan course. Over this past weekend, he attended the Ratha Yatra in Prague!
