Upcoming World Tour of Srila Govinda Maharaj? Many devotees have asked about Srila Gurudev's travel plans. Srila Govinda Maharaj *may* travel abroad in 2007, but it is by no means certain. His Divine Grace has been invited by countless devotees to visit all corners of the world, and expressed he would be happy to fulfil all of these invitations but his health is the limiting factor.
If His Divine Grace will travel, he is likely to attend the installation of the Deities in the new Veracruz Ashram, Mexico, and while abroad may well visit Venezuela; California; London and Russia.
We shall give news here and on our World Tours web-page should the hopes of the devotees become reality for Srila Govinda Maharaj to visit the West this year.
