Sripad Bhakti Sudhir Goswami Maharaj in Tomsk
January 8th, 2008
Tomsk, Siberia, Russia
Sent by Balavanta Prabhu.
After two weeks' stay at the Moscow and Saint Petersburg temples, Sripad Bhakti Sudhir Goswami Maharaj heads east to the frosty Tomsk, Siberia, and right after arriving at the airport, activities start to bustle around His Holiness: one public alternates with another, public talks, informal association, a harinama ritvik initiation, etc. And that is just the first day! Below is the digital witness of these events.
First TV interview at a local TV studio.
Ashutosh Krishna Prabhu translates for Sripad Goswami Maharaj.
Next interview for another TV channel.
And one more interview — for yet another TV programme. [On the
