By Lavanya Mayi Devi Dasi (London Math Temple Manager)
This summer holidays has seen the return of our very dedicated younger devotees to the temple for more seva activities. Lavanya Prabha, Nadiarani, Dhanistha, Premanandini, Ganga, Chaitanya, Anu Krishna and Balaram have all shown us how to surrender to Srila Gurudev and give their energy and time for the service of Sri Sri Guru and Gauranga. All up for Mangal Arati, joining for the morning program: kirttans and Scripture readings, garland making, cleaning the Math, assisting in the kitchen, chanting japa, mrdanga classes and more, then after lunch they go to the park, woods, swimming or an outing to museums, cinema, etc., then returning for the evening program and class. On Tuesday evenings Sripad Nyasi Maharaj gives a wonderful Bhagavad-gita class which they all love.
Other activities included sewing classes from Lilavati didi and making decorations for the festivals. These God brothers and sisters have lots of fun together and we are all inspiried by their natural attraction to devotional life. A lovely example happened on Sunday—they worked hard all morning and then at Prasadam time I told them to sit and let others serve, “NO” they all said as one, “we want to do more.”
Srila Govinda Maharaj’s sweet mercy—ki jaya!
Srila Guru Maharaj’s sweet seva—ki jaya!
