Jaya Prabhupada! Greetings from Israel! I have come to this ancient land by the kindness and generosity of the devotees.
I am a guest of the ISKCON Harish community, led by Gunavatara Prabhu and his wife, Varshabhanavi Devi, two excellent devotees. The devotees here are wonderful hosts and are doing everything possible to facilitate my stay.
In general, the Israelis are intelligent and talented, and the weather is nice! I am staying in Caesarea, a city built by the Romans to administer Israel at the time of Jesus. From my apartment, I can see the Mediterranean Sea.
As you may know, Lord Krishna mercifully fulfilled my desire, and I finished my novel before leaving for Israel. I am now working full-time on the Mahabharata. I am going through the entire Sanskrit text and then will begin to write the first volume.
On Saturday, May 2, 2015, I will give a Ustream class on Lord Nrsimhadeva in English at 6:30pm Tel Aviv time.
With best wishes,
Hridayananda das Goswami
