KUALA LUMPUR – Last night about 400 devotees were at the temple to greet Lord Jagannatha, Who returned from the 6 hour Ratha yatra at 10pm. The kirtan was so jubilant, devotees dancing together in several clusters across the temple floor. They were spinning, dancing in circles, moving in and out of the center raising their hands, and going nuts. One turning circle of devotees (joined by holding hands) surrounded another circle going the opposite direction. Both went faster and faster until the spin force broke them apart. Continue reading

KUALA LUMPUR – Teary faces flooded Sri Jagannatha Mandir as Sri Sri Nitai Gaura Sunder neem deities left the temple to continue their journey touring various places in Malaysia to spread the love of Godhead.
They came to the Malaysia sent by HH Bhakti Purushottama Maharaj in 1991 and began their tour in Malaysia. Somehow, due to unforeseen circumstances, They stopped Their journey in 1993 and stayed in Sri Jagannatha mandir until last year when the Sankirtan Team requested that they were now ready to take the deities for their journey again. It was heart-breaking for the devotees here as the timing coincided with Snana Yatra when Sri Sri Jagannatha Baladeva and Subhatra deities go in convalescence, leaving no deities on the altar.

KUALA LUMPUR, MALAYSIA – He left us on 18/7/09, coinciding with Kamika Ekadasi. He was playing futsal in Klang. About 40 members all over the country were attending the Congregational Development meeting which his team had organized. They came from all over the country. That morning he had told them in their meeting that all the branches in Malaysia must come together and spread the movement. States which were not active should gear up as well he told them. Representatives from neighboring countries like Thailand, Bali and Singapore were also present.
After that was lunch and they had a short break before the futsal game. He was doing a full fast even without water. He apologized that they overlooked that it was ekadasi that day and it also clashed with a National Council meeting and a Bhagavad-gita contest, when they planned the meeting.
