Even though the Vyasa-puja festival and Kingsday were cancelled this year, the devotees from the ISKCON Durban temple in South Africa made a humble effort to have a private event for the Vyasa-puja of His Holiness Kadamba Kanana Swami, and simultaneously stream it live to Mayapur TV and Youtube channel. Devotees joined in from all over the world to stream this event live.
Bhakti Caitanya Swami spoke a few words and residing devotees also had the opportunity to share their experiences and offerings to Kadamba Kanana Swami. After the ceremony, Kadamba Kanana Swami thanked everyone, including the devotees who were watching online, and shared his appreciation of all who spoke and made an effort to organize the event.
Maharaj also took this opportunity to share his prayer for those watching and listening, which in light of the recent events around the world particularly, serves as a prayer for all of us.
‘We do not know what the material world will bring us, good or bad, materially speaking. But it changes nothing. Every time that we go through a difficult situation, and in that difficult situation we take shelter of devotional service, of Srila Prabhupada and of Krsna, and it will make us stronger. In the end, we will come out better’.
‘The flow of the mercy of Lord Caitanya is never obstructed, whatever the situation is. We are all in different places in lockdown right now, but we are still together at Srila Prabhupada’s feet and at Krsna’s feet. So at this time, let us take full advantage of this golden opportunity and if we do this, this human form of life will become the perfect pathway to go back to Godhead. And that is my prayer that we all utilise this one birth to go back home to Godhead’.
