All glories to Sri Guru and Sri Gauranga
Thanks to the sweet will of Om Vishnupad Paramahamsa Srila Bhakti
Sundar Govinda Dev-Goswami Maharaj, today I am still here under
the most safe shelter at the shade of the lotus feet of Sri Guru
and Sri Sri Anu Giriraj.
Sri Anu Giriraj's Temple has now manifested almost to its full
form, reminding us of a castle, but this is a transcendental castle,
and it has come from the heart and genius of Srila Gurudev, Srila
Bhakti Sundar Govinda Maharaj.
At every corner of the temple roof a 'tower' has been erected,

of Srila Guru Maharaj's desire. In addition he is giving to his
world-wide devotee family the opportunity to come and do some
service in such a special 'Home Comfort' environment.
Only His Divine Grace could do such inconceivable things here.
Thank you Gurudev!
