On the weekend of May 21st and 22nd 2011 was celebrated the most auspicious occasion of Sri Sri Radha Gopinatha’s 40th Anniversary. There were many special guests who were around at the time Srila Prabhupada personally spread Krishna consciousness and taught how to serve Their beautiful Lordships. Joined by over 100 initiated disciples of Srila Prabhupada, we churned the nectarine glories of Radha Gopinatha, Srila Prabhupada and the pioneering days of Krishna Consciousness in Australia.
On Saturday 21 May the program included a Srila Prabhupada Maha Guru-puja, a special darshan of Radha Gopinatha and a Maha Harinama Sankirtana that made history as being the biggest Harinam in Australia ever!
On Sunday 22 May the program consisted of ‘The Boat That Rocked part 2′ — a Sydney Harbour Picnic Cruise and a special 40th Anniversary Sunday Feast, including sweet bhajans & kirtans, recollections, a presentation by Caru dasa, feast and Maha-abhisekha of Sri Sri Radha Gopinatha.
Also a special souvenir magazine was printed for the event with many never seen before photos and rare stories of Radha Gopinatha’s arrival and pastimes in Sydney.
