As a sannyasi practicing detachment, I accept my services wholeheartedly if the day calls for being put in one place or moving around. Today was one of those nomadic days where i enjoyed being in diverse association.
For starters, It was a great pleasure to be present in the temple room with mostly 20-year-olds who enjoy an early morning chant-and-dance for God. They are genuine party animals, I must say, and they are preoccupied in the program of the Bhakti Academy.
From that location at 243 Avenue Road in Toronto, I was whisked away by Nimai Nitai and destined for Kitchener. We arrived perfectly at 11 am as per the schedule. It was my first time with these lovely folks that turned up a bit tardy with their arrival. Of course, I knew Yuri from Latvia, and there was Parama Hansa who became my physiotherapist after my knee surgery.
“What is today’s topic for speaking?” I asked.
It was concluded the theme was going to be “The Importance of Saintly Association.” That went well because it was interactive enough.
From Kitchener NN and I went to see and encourage a cancer patient in Oakville at the home. The visit, though brief, was powerful because of the hope of support for the family.
Burlington was our next stop for their weekly get together. The theme here was, “What do Vaishnavas actually do?” And the answer is in Chapter 10, Verse 10. Yes, 10, 10! We engage in positive messages. Working towards optimism, challenging cynicism, focusing on the marvellous ways of the Supreme Personality of Godhead. Nice energy in Burlington.
