Hare Krishna,
Please accept our humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada

“After having darshan of Mayapur in Antar-dvipa, learned devotees go to Simanta dvipa. Next one should go south of Mayapur to Godruma dvipa, then one should joyfully go to Madhya dvipa. After seeing these four islands on the east bank, one should reverently cross the Ganges. Having walked around Kola dvipa at leisure, then take darshan of Ritu dvipa. After you have seen the most beautiful Jahnu dvipa, go and see Modadruma dvipa and then Rudra dvipa. Then again cross the Ganges and walk back to Mayapur. There, respectfully enter the temple of Sriman Jagannatha Mishra and Sachi mata and take darshan of the Lord. This is the procedure of parikrama for all times. One who follows this practice will obtain unlimited happiness.” (Sri Navadvipa Dham Mahatmaya)

Yesterday was the adhivas ceremony of Navadvipa Mandala Parikrama. Procession took place at 4pm from Mayapur main gate down to Yogapith were the parikrama was inaugurated. Over thousands of devotees was fully in participations.

Today marked the first day of Navadvipa Mandala Parikrama, about- 2500 devotees in one party started today for Godrumdvipa. Devotees set out from Mayapur main gate at 5:30am to Suvarna Vihar, down to Panchanan Tala, where breakfast was served and afterwards headed for Narsimha Pally, from Narsimha pally to Harihar Kshetra and finally for the day to Amghata. Lunch Prasadam was served at Harihar Ksetra.

HH Radharaman Swami, HH Bhakti Vigna Vinasana Narasimha Swai, HH Bhakti Bijoy Bhagavat Swami, HH Gauranga prem Swami, HH Bhakti Nityananda Swami, HG Pancaratna Das, and many senior devotees taking part in Parikrama. Everyday HH Jayapataka Swami will join Parikrama virtually and give his association. Everyday evening, special classes for different languages will be held in Mayapur.

In this year Navadvipa Mandala Parikrama, there is no sleep tent, devotees will set out every day in the morning from Mayapur Chandrodaya and return. We all are fully aware as to why some changes has been made for this year, which is all due to the on-going pandemic all over the world. But some how we should still count ourselves very fortunate to have gotten such an amazing opportunity this year to still set out for Navadvipa Parikrama.
Everyday there will be breakfast and lunch prasadam for devotees… This year numbers of devotees are reduced and sponsorship for Parikrama seva is very low. Kindly be a part of our parikrama sponsors and receive the unlimited mercy of the dham.
