Upon our arrival back in Dhaka on the 15th of March Dvija-Nayaka Prabhu flew on to Chittagong while I traveled to Narayan Ganj, two hours away from Dhaka. Here Lord Jagannath resides and is nicely worshiped, together with Lord Baladev and Lady Subhadra.
Rupa Ragunath Prabhu from Australia had joined the Sydney temple shortly after me in the mid eighties', and over the years we had met every now and again in Mayapur. For all these years he had been a dedicated book distributor, and now I had invited him and Dvija-nayaka Prabhu from Croatia to join me on my visit to Bangladesh. On the 6th of March, after relaxing in Dhaka for a couple of days we took a domestic flight to Sylhet, where we spent the following days over Gaur Purnima.
Shortly after the Girls' Mela we were yet conducting another major event: the annual program of the Institute for Spiritual Culture, on the 24th of February. This year the overall theme was "The Glories of Our Vaikuntha Children", bringing attention to the importance of moving our children into the center of our communities. The chief guest speakers were HH Sivarama Maharaja and HH Lokanath Maharaja, followed by several senior grhasthas.
