Villa Govinda, the new property of the Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Ashram Italia, secured for Srila Bhakti Sundar Govinda Dev-Goswami Maharaj's seva by the combined efforts of many, headed by Krishna Kanta Devi Dasi and Prabhu Munindra Mohan.

Prabhu Madhurananda and Prabhu Munindra Mohan till the land...

...plant seeds, and protect them from predators.

Prabhu Shyamasundar and Shantimoy Devi Dasi clear old unwanted things from the heart of the house.

Krishna's army marches on with the Lord's Prasadam. Prabhu Anukulchandra prepares offerings in the renovated kitchen assisted by our enthusiastic newcomer, Sabina.

Afterwards, Prabhu Madhurananda washes the pots as gardening resumes. Prabhu Anakulchandra digs deep to ensure the roots of undesirable creepers are fully removed.

Many hands make light work. Shantimoy Devi Dasi and Sabina pull out even the smallest weeds so the plants of devotion can grow with least hindrance.

All glories indeed to the Villa Govinda, a manifestation from the hearts of the Italian devotees, as they expressed in offering the property to his lotus feet, "For the satisfaction of the most wonderful Guru that ever walked on this earth."
