Jai Giridari and Mike Prabhus visited Gita Nagari from the Bhakti Center in New York city. They helped us milk the cows on Saturday night, gave us their amazing association, and took the milk order back to New York on Sunday. They took almost three days out of their lives to ensure Srila Prabhupada's vision of farm and city interdependence is realized. We look forward to their next visit!
Bhakta John and his friend Ereck came to the farm last weekend from Philadelphia to video the core team in action. They filmed us training oxen, harvesting okra, Indian squash, and kale from the field, Japa walks, making yogurt, cooking, greeting the deities, honoring the Guru, maha kirtans, Srimad Bhagavatam class, milking the cows, calling the cows to the barn, and having the time of our lives serving Sri Sri Radha Damodar and Their devotees. We will announce when the video will be available for viewing.
Druva Prabhu's relatives from New York brought his cousin from South Africa to Gita Nagari for a weekend get away from the city. They all jumped right in to give service in the holy dham. We see where our Temple leaders get their work ethic.
The new cow barn is taking shape. Nandishwar Prabhu, Keshi Mardan, Madhukari, Bhakta Ian, Bhakta Umesh, and Bhakta Paul have the basic framework in concrete and will put the walls and flooring in next week. What an amazing team Krishna has brought together to clean up and improve Gita Nagari. Thanks to our generous donors for providing the means to facilitate the many improvements in progress.
