Sharing the Way of Love in Australia

Posted on June 29, 2017 by Anita dasi

By the mercy of Guru and Gauranga we were once again able to try to serve Srila Gurudeva and the parampara by harinam sankirtan and transcendental book distribution in the lovely tirtha of Murwillumbah and its surrounding towns and cities.

Mostly we would set up a book table so that we could display Srila Gurudeva and Srila Prabhupads books and also some incense and Vrindavan trinkets to attract more people to the table.

Even if they only wish to buy some incense or a trinket they would always go away with at least a Way of Love as well, thanks in kind to the kind donors of the GVP book donation scheme.

Many books went out, not just on the streets but also in yoga and music festivals such as Byron Bay Spirit Festival which happens yearly in April and also Broadbeach Blues festival, a free music festival at Easter time to name a few.

What made this time in Australia so special particularly is that beautiful new deities have manifested in Srila Gurudevas wonderful center in Muwillumbah. They are absolutely exquisite and everyone feels they are fully present and devotees are all coming and experiencing absolute bliss when having their darshan.

So it was such a pleasant seva to do a book table in the town center, meet new people or devotees from other sangas passing through town and invite them for darshan and lunch cooked by all the nice sevaks who are coming daily to cook for Their Lordships.

The temple is expanding very nicely, a yanga shala has been built and Bhagvatam and Caitanya Caritamrta classes are going on every morning and evening respectively. The devotees are all happily engaged in Thakurji seva and everyone is in bliss.

Gaura Premanandi!!!
