Devotees from all over Russia and the Ukraine flock together on this most auspicious day to celebrate the anniversary of the holy appearance of Srila Bhakti Sundar Govinda Dev-Goswami Maharaj to intensify the consciousness of the eternal gift most mercifully given by His Divine Grace and thus to try to dedicate themselves to his lotus feet with a deeper earnestness.
