To Africa

Srila Gurudeva's wish

It's official — Srila Govinda Maharaj will send Goswami Maharaj and me to South Africa to promote his mission in South Africa, and to try to improve cooperation amongst his disciples.

We will leave for Johannesburg in the first week of June (just before my Indian visa expires). Goswami Maharaj will stay for at least three weeks; I will stay for six. Sripad Bhakti Amal Paramahamsa Maharaj will also be sent to join us a few weeks later.

I really did not think that I would be sent on this mission to South Africa, because I am a new sannyasi with no qualification other than being born there. If anything, I thought my being born in South Africa was a disqualification (a prophet is not recognized in his own country).

I'm so dumb, sometimes! As Srutasrava Prabhu says: "Duh! I could have looked at your palm three days ago and told you: 'I see a trip to Africa in your future.'"
