Dear Devotees,

Jaya Prabhupada! I hope that you are all doing well. I will be in Italy for twelve more days and then fly to Barcelona. Italy is a beautiful country, and the people are very nice and naturally pious. There are extraordinary preaching opportunities here and the devotees are enthusiastic to facilitate my preaching here. The devotees here have been perfect hosts. They are very kind and generous. My disciple Ekabhakti and his wife Vrndarani deserve much praise for their tireless efforts to help me and all the visiting devotees.

Also my new sannyasi disciple, Yamunacarya Goswami, is still here and I always appreciate his association. He is a gentleman and is eager to serve the guru in any way he can. I’m sure he will be continue to be successful in his dedicated preaching.

In Spain, I will first stay in Barcelona, then the devotee farm, Nueva Vraja Mandala, and finally a weekend in Madrid. The Spanish devotees also have been extremely kind and enthusiastic in planning my visit. Candrasekharacarya has rendered invaluable service in helping to plan my Europe tour. He is with me now in Asiago, and he will accompany me throughout Europe.

After Spain I will make a tour of France (without a bicycle), visiting many cities. My Brazilian disciple, Adarana dd, has been preaching in Nantes, and she will host us for several days of program. I am of course grateful to her.

After France, we will spend three days in Radhadesha, about five days in Germany, several days in Poland and Lithuania, and finally a week Denmark and Norway. I will fly from Oslo, Norway back to New York. We are planning programs in New Vrindavana, at the enthusiastic invitation of Vrindavana Dasa, and Lawrence, Kansas, where my dear Godsister, Gopimata, has been doing excellent programs for many years.

Anandalila, Jagannatha and, hopefully, Lilananda dd will drive me from New Vrindavan to Lawrence. After that I will probably fly back to Los Angeles where I will spend a few weeks. After my visit to America, my next trip will be to Latin America.

With best wishes,
Hridayananda das Goswami
