Hamsavahan (Lord Shiva) visits ISKCON Mayapur

Hamsavahan (Lord Shiva riding Brahma's swan) came to visit ISKCON Mayapur again this year. He was recieved with GREAT enthusiasm by local devotees.
Many of brahmacharis have a lot of affection for Lord Shiva from the childhood, so there was very enthusiastic kirtan as well as very colorful and plentiful bathing ceremony (abhishek).

Lord Shiva was so anxcious to listed of Gauranga's pastimes in Navadvipa Dhama that he could not wait any longer, jumped on the back of his father's carrier (Swan) instead of his own (bull) and rushed to Godruma Dvipa to hear discussions of sages about Lord Chaitanya. He recieved the name Hamsavahan.

Since couple of past years Hamsavahan have been visiting ISKCON Mayapur - there always a grand reception for Him here.

Milking cows in ISKCON Mayapur Goshala

by Vrindavan Lila Dasi

Our ISKCON Mayapur Goshala has improved a lot in the past few years, cows are looked after very nicely and with great attention. Cows are peaceful and supplying very tasty milk for the pleasure of Radha-Madhava, Pancha-tattva and Nrisimha Deva, as well as for the community devotees.

This video-show called HOME and is a little experimental :), but I thought the music goes nicely with the theme.
