Dear Devotees and Friends,
For more than fifty years, om visnupada Sri Srimad Bhaktivedanta Narayana Gosvami Maharaja performed and conducted Sri Vraja-mandala parikrama. This month long festival affords the opportunity of visiting and hearing about all of Krsna’s pastime places in Vraja, of regularly hearing the philosophical conclusions of Gaudiya Vaisnavism, of performing kirtana morning, noon and night, and of being in the company of sincere devotees from around the world. For these reasons, Vraja-mandala parikramä was given much emphasis by our beloved Srila Gurudeva.
This will be the third Vraja-mandala parikrama conducted without Srila Gurudeva’s physical presence. But it has been the experience of many that Srila Gurudeva is still very much with us on this parikramä, affording a very sweet, heart-stirring experience. Please come and experience this for yourselves.
This year’s parikrama will be inaugurated on October 18th, with the devotees observing sankalpa, or a vow to ensure the success of our parikrama, on the bank of Yamuna near Gopinatha Bhavan, Vrindavana. After this we will begin our Sri Vraja-mandala parikrama, a pilgrimage to all the incomparably beautiful places in Vraja. Our pilgrimage will be completed on November 17th.
