Many of you may be familiar with the beautiful village of New Braj, Badger, CA. The place where by some inconceivable causeless mercy of our beloved Srila Gurudeva, Srila Bhaktivedanta Narayan Goswami Maharaja, came in 1996 on his first worldwide preaching tour and gave a series of discourses that changed forever the lives of the devotees residing there.
Srila Gurudeva said he specifically went to Badger because he heard hearts crying there. That was the beginning of the next 15 years of ecstatic programs.
Srila Gurudeva returned to Badger every spring as the local devotees hosted festivals that were attended by the visiting devotees from all over the world.
At one point he remarked that the discourses he was giving in Badger would be discussed for the next thousands of years. He also said that one day Badger would become the center of his worldwide preaching mission.
