Greetings to all the devotees!

Jaya Prabhupada! I am writing from Germany, outside Berlin where I will speak later today.

Here is the news: in general, we are having very wonderful programs around Europe. After five weeks in Northeast Italy with many excellent, loving devotees, I spent ten days in Spain, where we had ecstatic programs in Barcelona, Nueva Vraja Mandala, and Madrid.

I then spent three weeks in France with the invaluable assistance of Candrasekharacarya. I recently spent three days in Radhadesha, and for the last three days have been in Germany where Paramshreya has kindly organized my tour.

I am now in the ’schloss’ or castle of Gadadhara Prabhu outside Berlin, where I will speak this afternoon. Tomorrow, Monday, I will go to Warsaw, and Friday to Lithuania. Next Monday I will fly to Denmark, and on the following Monday I will end my European tour with a short week in Oslo, Norway. I will fly back to New York on September 20.

I have met so many extraordinary devotees in Europe who kindly and enthusiastically support my attempt to serve Prabhupada. There is unlimited potential in Europe to spread Krishna consciousness and I am deeply grateful to the many devotees who have helped me here. In Italy, Spain, France, Radhadesha and now Germany, I have been so inspired by the Vaishnavas here. Also, other countries are inviting me and I will visit those countries on my next trip to Europe.

My sincere thanks to you all for your understanding and support.

With best wishes,
Hridayananda das Goswami
