TOVP Tour Diary Day 14 – A Visit to Gita Nagari
On Wednesday, March 25th, we brought the Padukas, Sitari and Jananivas prabhu to visit the historic Gita Nagari farm established by Srila Prabhupada and home of Sri Sri Radha Damodar, the beloved Deities of Visnujana Swami during the Radha Damodar Traveling Sankirtan Party days.
After being greeted by the devotees with kirtan, the Padukas and Sitari were placed on Srila Prabhupada’s head. We were taken on a tour and shown the Gita Nagari Creamery, the only commercial ahimsa dairy farm in the U.S., supplying dairy products to temples and many food outlets in this part of the country. We were shown the herd of more than 50 cows, plus the many peacocks and deer on the property. Finally, we were taken to offer respect to His Holiness Bhakti Tirth Swami at his Samadhi. An opulent feast of 15 preparations teaming with home-made dairy products and vegetables was served to all the devotees.
