This week we again hosted His Holiness Devamrta Swami who presented classes to 100 retreat participants about the temporary nature of happiness in this material world. The retreat was very much appreciated by all those who attended. Everyone managed to go for a bus trip to Lorne in the middle of the day to enjoy the scenery, despite the unpredictable weather.
Meanwhile back at Hare Krishna Valley, while the retreat participants were at Lorne, we held our monthly Sunday feast programme for 30 guests who came from both near and far. As it was Mothers day, I gave a class about the seven mothers mentioned in the Vedic literature for the interest of those who attended. The seven mothers are our natural mother, the wife of the Guru, the wife of the Holy man, the wife of the King, the wet-nurse, the cow and the earth.
We look forward to speaking to you again next week.
Until then, I remain yours in the service of Srila Prabhupada.
