people attended this festive occasion honouring the Divine Appearance
Day of Srila Bhakti Raksak Sridhar Dev-Goswami Maharaj in the
great land of China.
Several came early for cleaning, decorating and cooking. In the
evening, we had arotik, which was intently performed by one of
the students, and everyone participated in the chanting. That
is extraordinary as they are not accustomed to kirtan style
where one person leads, and everyone else repeats. Often I am
singing both parts alone! But this time, everyone joined and we
had a very nice kirtan.
We also arranged for a Puspa Puja, flower offering, to Srila Sridhar
Maharaja, and again, everyone happily joined in.
