News from Govardhan, November 16th
Please accept my dandavat pranams. All glories to Srila Gurudeva and Srila Prabhupada. All glories to Sri Sri Guru and Gauranga. All glories to Sri Sri Radha-Vinodehariji.
Today has been a long day on parikrama. We visited Varshana and Surya-kunda, amongst other places. That is why this update is so late.
Srila Gurudeva did not rest well last night. However, this morning he again came out onto the balcony in his wheelchair at about 8.30, after most of the devotees had left for parikrama. BV Tridandi Maharaja said it was the best he has seen him looking for weeks. The devotees were chanting Hare Krishna, and Srila Gurudeva stayed for 15 minutes or more. He waved his hands, and spoke to some devotees in a strong voice. "He was very present," said one devotee who was there. Srila Gurudeva walked four times, with some assistance. In the evening he again came out at about 5.30 pm, but for a very short time.
Tomorrow is Ekadasi and a rest day, so I will be able to get more information then. In the meantime, we can continue to pray for Srila Gurudeva's health and strength, as the devotee performing parikrama have been doing at the pastime places.
Aspiring for service Sri Hari, Guru and Vaishnavas,
B V Nemi
