By the mercy of Shri Shri Radha-Govind, Shri Shri Gaura-Nitaye, Srila Prabhupada and you Maharaj, we were able to celebrate Vayas Puja mahotsav in Gondia. All Gondia’s devotees with full enthusiasm celebrated 69th Vayas Puja on 29th July Sunday at VITTHALA RUKMINI Mandir Gondia. The festival was hosted by HG ANANTSHRI Prabhuji and HG VISHVAMURTHI Mataji. Gondia is enlightening by your mercy in form of this two wonderful devotees.
