On my arrival in Cologne on the 18th of April I had a day to settle in before getting ready to offer the course on "Entering the Grhastha Ashram". Devotees arrived on Friday evening from nearby cities and also from the community of Goloka Dham, eager to receive insights into this topic which was highly relevant to all participants. Most of them were unmarried and considering to enter family life - uncertain how to go about it. Some had had already a painful and disappointing experience and realized now that they needed some help.
On my arrival in Stuttgart airport on the 13th of April I met up with 19-year-old Nadia Mani from Kiev. She had expressed a desire to accompany me on my travels, so I had invited her to join me on my trip around Germany.
Over the Easter Holidays a nice group of serious devotees assembled in Lika/Croatia to embark on a 3-day Holy Name Retreat. I had done weekend retreats here twice before, and Murari Gupta Prabhu and his good wife Sundari Mataji are always wonderful hosts, opening their home with great pleasure to receive the devotees and feed them sumptuously. A great example of Vaishnava hospitality within ideal family life.
