“I’ll be back!”

A presentation by Navina Nirada Dasa at the NE BBT symposium, South Germany on the 1.15.2000 Dear Devotees, I feel excited to be here and hear all these wonderful presentations and see all these documentations of Srila Prabhupadas present book production and distribution. I just came from Mayapur where we completed the Sankirtan Academy. In this Vaishnava Academy we will soon host the MIHE, Mayapur Institute of Higher Education. Over...
