Ojasvi prabhu, some time ago he thought of starting
to devote himself more to spiritual life and in no time
he appeared to live in the temple and now he is
functioning as pujari

Four Indian students arrived from Smolensk about a week ago,
and with a very inspiring mood they do all kind
of seva in the temple

 

Vasudev Prabhu was going to fly to India on the December 31, but some
difficulties in the airport occured and he spend one more day with
Moscow devotees

 

It was very encouraging to see that even on the New Year's eve,
on the day when most people in Russia prefer to stay at home with thier
relatives, still some prefered to spend the evening with devotees
in Srila Gurudev's temple

 

Vasudev Prabhu was giving the class on the New Year's eve,
the last class of the year

 

Jnana Ananda prabhu comes to the temple almost every day
and does a lot of seva in the temple

Sripad Srutasrava Prabhu and his translator, Ashutosh Krishna prabhu,
spent few hours in Moscow airport on their way to Tomsk. Ramaray prabhu, Kundalata dd and Katyayani dd didn't want to miss the precious opportunity to hear hari-katha from the lips of a beloved servitor of Srila Gurudev, so they shared these hours with them.

Few days ago devotees from Turkey presented to our
Russian cultural center the Turkish edition of Srimad Bhagavad Gita

 

 

It is said that when one talks about the Supreme Lord he person transfigures:
Inspired Sahadev prabhu is giving a class.

 

 

About a week ago Madhava Mohini devi dasi made a "raid"
into flower shops and as a result the temple has been
decorated with the beautiful bunches of roses, that she had
collected as a donation. Madhava Mohini dd also
makes garlands for Sri Giriraj Maharaj every day

 

 

Today (January 3, 2006) our devotees visited the Minister
of Indian education in Russia to congratulate him on the New Year holiday.
