Lord Nrsimhadeva's Feast

This feast was truly from Vaikuntha. All the devotees and guests kept going back for more repeatedly.
I was amazed at how little was left, as at the beginning it looked to me as though we'd cooked four times more than required.

22nd November 2003

My Silas have come to me since 1993 when Bala das returned from Muktinatha and gave me several silas he has picked from the Gandaki. Later I was in Dhaka, Bangladesh and found the one with the nice mouth sitting on a dusty shelf in an antique store. I convinced the owner to give the Sila to me as a gift. Actually he gave me two, and Srila B.V. Puri Maharaja selected one of them to go to Italy and be worshiped in the new Jagannatha Temple he opened in Sardenia three years ago.

Then in 2000 Prana Ballabha das went to Muktinath and he came back and gave me several more. Over the years the Shaligram's have come and then I give some to others, and then more come. At present I am worshiping 12 of them each morning with Ganga snan, chandan, oils, Tulasi, dhoop, dheep, ghee, etc. In spite of being held prisoner by the Orissa Police, the Shaligram has protected me and I have been able to continue their worship while under detention.

Your servant,

Bhakta dasa
