H are Krishna, For the pleasure of their Lordships Sri Sri Radha Madhav, Pancatattva, Sri Nrisimha Dev, Sri Jagannath Baladev Subhadra Maharani and Srila Prabhupada, Mayapur Local Preaching (MLP) went to Sri Jagannath Puri for a six day tour from 10th to 15th March. 70 Bhakti Vriksha members went for the trip and by the mercy of Their Lordships, all devotees have returned back fine.
Devotees went by the Howrah Puri Express on 10th night and reached Puri on 11th morning. The program inauguration took place at the garden of Tota Gopinath temple around 11 am with glorification of Lord ‘Sri Tota Gopinath’ by H.G.Mathuresh Prabhu.
They visited following pastime places of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu followed by Harinam Sankirtan: ‘Sat-asan’ places, Siddha Bakul, Gambhira, Srila Sarba Bhouma Bhattacarya Griha, Sheta Ganga, Sheta Madhav, Srila Bhakti Siddhanta Saraswati Thakur’s Birth Place,Sri Jagannath Ballava uddyan, Gundica Temple, Sri Nrisimha Mandir, Sri Indraduymna Sarovar, Lord Nilmadhav at Kontila village, Lingaraj Temple at Bhubaneswar, Bindu Sarovar, Ananta Basudev, Sakshi Gopal Mandir, Allalnath and Sri Jagannath Temple both inside and outside.
Devotees brought a self-cooking arrangement from Mayapur and they were happy to honor delicious prasadam three times a day. Other than these programs, there was also a provision for samudra snnan (bathing in the ocean) as recommended by Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu.
H.G. Ananda Bardhan Prabhu led the party as Tirtha Guru and talked about the pastimes of the Lord at different pilgrimages. The participants were very happy with the tour and some of them even cried out in ecstasy. Overall, the tour has completed successfully under the guidance and co-ordination of H.G. Mathuresh Prabhu.
