Dear Devotees,

Please accept my most humble obeisances.

So many things have happened here locally. The most important thing of course for us was Srila Gurudev's visit to Holland. It has been more than a week ago now that Srila Gurudev left Holland to go to Italy, but we can still feel very strongly his influence and his blessings that he gave to everyone here.

It was an unbelievable week that will stay in our memories forever. By the letters from Hasyapriya Prabhu over the email we had already read about Gurudev's visit in Russia, it sounded like some miracles were happening there. And when Srila Gurudev finally arrived in Amsterdam we all felt like a miracle had happened here as well. We were almost too perplexed to even say or do anything. But after this first moment of perplexity, very quickly the whole thing went on moving. And by the mercy of Srila Gurudev the moving became more and more intense and sweeter and sweeter.

(Pic: taking a walk)A very nice place in the countryside was rented and devotees from all over Europe had come. Everyone gave as much as he had to give, and that made the days of Srila Gurudev's visit so very nice. The last day, as Hasyapriya Prabhu had already written, was very excited and we all felt Gurudev's mercy and blessings so intensely. Now Gurudev has gone we all feel very sad but also we are so much strengthened in our devotion by all the blessings of Gurudev and all the devotees and this must have results for the future here in Holland.
Please again accept my dandavats.

Your servant
-Yasheswari d.d.
