This past weekend me and a group of about 14 devotees from the Houston Hare Krishna temple traveled to Pennsylvania for a 4 days retreat at the Gita Nagari farm.
The main attraction of this retreat was Radhanath Swami, author of the acclaimed book “The Journey Home”. This was a rare opportunity to meet him live, and since I have followed his lectures and read his articles for quite a while I just couldn’t let it pass.
We got on an early flight to Newark, NY last Friday, then drove about 3 hours and a half to the farm.
On Saturday we watched a couple of lectures, had prasadam and toured around the farm. During the afternoon Rachel and I went to Port Royal, a nearby town to by fruits and make phone calls (there was no signal at the farm).
By the end of Saturday I finally had a chance to meet Radhanah Swami. It was a short encounter but definitely worth the effort! This is the only picture with him I got.
And here are a few pictures of our group in different occasions during the retreat:
This was definitely an incredible experience, very hard to describe here. But I hope you can have a glimpse of what we experienced through the pictures.
