Before Avadhut Maharaj left for Moscow yesterday, he informed me that he has arranged for me to go on another lecture tour of the Ukraine, visiting four cities in one week. I visited three of the four cities during a two-week tour in early November last year.
The new tour begins this Thursday (15th) from Moscow, and I am scheduled to visit the following cities with Ashutosha Krishna Prabhu, who will act as the tour coordinator and interpreter:
• Kiev: The capital city, in north-central Ukraine, on the Dnieper River.
• Kharkiv: The old capital and second largest city, in the northeast.
• Odessa: The Black Sea port and popular holiday resort in the south.
• Zaporizhzhya: A city in the south, east of Odessa and west of Kharkiv.
On the last tour of the Ukraine, I visited the eastern city of Donetsk, instead of Kharkiv. Like before, the entire tour will be by rail. We will leave Saint Petersburg for Moscow on Wednesday.
The tour will begin with a visit to our newest center in Zaporizhzhya (16-18), then on to Kiev (18-19), Odessa (20-22), and Kharkiv (23-24) — and finally back to Moscow on the 25th.
