Dear Devotees,

Jaya Prabhupada! Today I am celebrating Sri Krishna Janmastami in Vilnius, Lithuania, the birthplace of my maternal grandmother.

The devotees here, as in Poland, are wonderful. They are eager to serve, very appreciative of my programs, and devoted to Lord Krishna. This morning I gave a class in the temple, and then we took a japa walk all around the old city. As you know, Europe is a historian’s wonderland, and Vilnius is no exception.

Tonight there is a program in a large hall. Many famous actors and actresses agreed to stage a play based on the Bhagavatam story of Puranjana. There will also be music and dancing, and I will speak about Krishna. Tomorrow we will, of course, celebrate Srila Prabhupada’s divine appearence day.

Monday I will fly to Copenhagen, and Tuesday to Aarhus where my disciple Danesha will host me for one week.

I wish all of you a very happy, healthy, and enlightening Janmastami and Vyasapuja.

With best wishes,
Hridayananda das Goswami
