Video: Surprise Send-Off Party for HH Bhaktimarga Swami

9:02:00 AM By Kevala-Bhakti Dasa (Keshav)

A group of devotees from Toronto's Hare Krishna community gathered to throw a mini-surprise party for Bhaktimarga Swami as he prepared to begin his FOURTH walk across Canada this year.

With Maharaj busy in a meeting, devotees hid in the restaurant with balloons, rose petals, a confetti stick and a garland and waited for Maharaj to be brought in! It was an explosion of colour and chanting as we then surprised Maharaj and brought him to a specially arranged table where we served a huge feast for him (and everyone present)!

The special menu included all of Maharaj's favourites: noodles, manchurian, cream cheese wraps, humus wraps, gauranga potatoes, Russian potato salad, asparagus, spinach sabji, pizza, paranthas, greek salad, strawberry/banana/coconut milkshakes and more!

The mini-surprise party was a huge success and we wish Maharaj all the best as he heads out for his fourth walk across Canada! Hare Krsna!
