Dear Devotees,

Please accept our dandavat pranama.

Sri Guru Gauranga Jayatah.

Srila Gurudeva's followers in New Zealand extend a warm worldwide invitation to all, to start the New Year with Srila Gurudeva.

Come and participate in the Festival of Love, held for the first time in Auckland, New Zealand.
