Honored by the presence of HH Jayapataka Swami Maharaj, after such a long absence from the crowds in Mayapur. Guru Maharaj has been indoors due to the lockdown, and today on the very special inauguration of the Gaura Purnima festival, He has taken a step out to give us his blessings for the hosting of the flag which marks the first day of the Gaura Purnima festival.
Srila Prabhupada says: The members of the International Society for Krsna Consciousness should go to India during the birthday ceremony of Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu at Mayapur and perform sankirtana congregationally. This will attract the attention of all the important personalities in India, just as the beauty, bodily lustre, and sankirtana performance by the associates of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu attracted the attention of Maharaja Pratapaudra.
