On the 12th of September I returned from Perth to Sydney to offer a Holy Name Retreat at New Gokula over the following weekend.

A 5-hour flight took me on the 2nd of September from Sydney to Perth - right across the whole continent of Australia...!
As soon as I had decided to spend some time in Australia and New Zealand, it was clear to me where I would celebrate Janmastami - at New Gokula, at Radha Gokulananda's lotus feet...
