Nityananda’s Paduka (Shoes) Bless the Grand Opening of TOVP Seva Office in Mayapur
On February 1st, 2015, Lord Nityananda Prabhu’s Appearance Day, the TOVP Seva Office in Mayapur officially opened with a grand celebration consisting of Lord Nityananda’s Paduka (shoes) leaving the altar for the first time to bless the occasion.
There was a grand procession with Srila Prabhupada taking the lead. The loud chanting of the Vedic Mantras by the Gurukul Boys of Sri Dham Mayapur added to the auspiciousness of the whole occasion. HH Bhakti Chaitanya Swami, HH Subhag Swami, HH Chandra Mauli Swami, HH Bhakti Vidya Purna Swami, HH Bhakti Purussotam Swami & many other senior members of Iskcon graced the event with their presence.
HG Ambarish Prabhu, HG Radha Jivan Prabhu, HG Pragosh Prabhu, HG Bhavananda Prabhu & many other senior leaders shared their realizations & views about the TOVP. Then finally, the ceremony was concluded with Srila Prabhupada’s Guru Puja & Ribbon Cutting.
It was really an amazing experience for all the devotees & especially for the TOVP team as a whole.
The Lord’s divine shoes are also scheduled to go on an extensive three-month tour to North America starting in March, 2015 to bless and give all the devotees His darshan.
