This was my first visit to Radhadesh as a preacher. I was scheduled to give the course "Women in Spiritual Culture" to the ladies of the community, over five days, three hours every day in the afternoon.
On my arrival in Berlin on the 15th of September I was welcomed by Julia Mataji at the train station. She had eagerly invited me to stay with her in her home, together with her four-year-old daughter Juno and her dog Freia.
I arrived in Cologne in the early afternoon of Radhastami, and after lunch I was invited to give the class for a little Radhastami program in the temple room. Since the auspicious day fell on a Tuesday not so many devotees were able to attend the program, and the main Radhastami festival was scheduled for the following Sunday.
Devotee Care has become a very relevant and widely discussed topic in ISKCON. We have realized that Devotee Care is extremely important for ISKCON to become a stable and strong society, and thus we have even established a GBC Committee for Devotee Care within the Strategic Planning.
