Sri Vraja Mandal Parikram 2012 – DAY 2

DAY 2: October 30th

After his customary 6 a.m. morning walk, Gurumaharaj spoke about the appearance of Tridanti Swami Srimad Bhakti Gaurav Vaikhanas Maharaj during morning class. He read and explained the following verse from the Srimad Bhagavatam (First Canto Chapter 5 Verse 16):

vicakṣaṇo ‘syārhati veditum vibhor

ananta-parasya nivrttiah sukham

pravartamanasya guṇair anātmanas

tato bhavan darsaya cestitam vibhoh

The Supreme Lord is unlimited. Only a very expert personality, retired from the activities of material happiness, deserves to understand this knowledge of spiritual values. Therefore those who are not so well situated, due to material attachment, should be shown the ways of transcendental realization, by Your Goodness, through descriptions of the transcendental activities of the Supreme Lord.

He also spoke about how Kartik is about purifying ourselves and presented the class with a question for meditation:

 “Think of those who you have offended in your lifetime, think of what you did to offend them and write down a sincere apology, and if it’s possible email or mail these people your written apology.”

As part of the Parikram they visited the Godavihar Temple, Rangaji Temple, and the Lala Babu temple. In many of these temples photography is not allowed so we will not be able to show you all the images of the temples but we will definitely try to show you as much as possible of the festivities here in Vrindavan.

Later in the afternoon Gurumaharaj and his devotees headed over to the Yamuna River to request permission from Yamuna Devi for a successful and blessed parikram.

At night Sadhu Maharaj and some of his devotees came to Vrinda Kunj to celebrate Sarat Purnima.
