I am inviting you all to our Navadvīpa parikramā
I am inviting you all to our Navadvīpa parikramā, for the Navadvīpa Mahotsava – the festival of Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu. We will be performing parikramā of the nine islands… I am inviting you all. If some of you come to parikramā, I will be very happy, and if you cannot come, do not be weak. Always be strong and see that Kṛṣṇa, Mahāprabhu, Nityānanda Prabhu and myself are there with you. Never be weak. This is my message to you all.
