On my arrival in Kharkov/Ukraine on the 18th of August I immediately involved myself in preparing for Janmastami.
I hadn't visited the Odessa temple for three years - the devotees had repeatedly requested me to come and offer a seminar, and now I had found an opportunity to accept their invitation.....
On the 6th of August I joined the Baltic Festival in Lithuania. As last year, it was once again a wonderful opportunity for me to meet up with many devotees who I remember from the early days when establishing the temple in Riga during my married life.
We had the good fortune to be in the uplifting association of HH Niranjana Swami, HH Bhakti Caitanya Swami, HG Gurudas Prabhu and Mother Urmila. I had recently read Gurudas Prabhu's book about his association with Srila Prabhupada, and it was wonderful to meet him now in person. The days were filled with lots of Krishna Katha and kirtan, and connecting with devotees.
