From Cape Town, Kadamba Kanana Swami travelled to Durban on Monday, 22 September. His stay was a week full of exciting programs and kirtans. It started-off on Tuesday with an evening program at the New Jagannatha Puri Temple in Phoenix; followed by a program in Scottburgh on Wednesday, 24 September, which was a public holiday in SA. This was an initiative by the Global Youth Yatra which brought together young people from the local community who got exposure to Krsna consciousness through song-and-dance, interesting discourses and prasadam!
On Thursday and Friday, Maharaj participated in Bhakti Yoga Society Student Retreat that took place at the temple. On Friday night, a program was held at the home of Candrasekhara. Apart from the devotees, many family members and friends also attended who got the opportunity to hear Maharaj render kirtan and speak about Krsna’s Vrindavan pastimes.
Amidst his stay in Durban, Maharaj went to Pretoria for a day to participate in a Saturday afternoon program. On Sunday, another busy day lay ahead with Maharaj attending the Love Feast in Pietermaritzburg at midday and in Durban in the afternoon.
On Monday, the final program of this SA visit took place at the house of Nicole and Kody in Pretoria. Apart all of these engagements, Maharaj also gave morning classes and spent time with the disciples. On Tuesday, he departed for Australia.
