I thought you might like to see some photos taken on the day of Srila Govinda Maharaja’s tirobhava.
Lila Sundari Devi collected a great number of apple blossoms from neighbors to use for decorating.
There are two large vases like this, one on each side of the altar.
Lila also collected many magnolia tree blossoms which were also used for offering/decorating.
Bhoga offerings included shaka (top of plate) collected from our yard. When Srila Gurudeva was here I prepared this for him fried in mustard oil with chili, mustard seeds, etc. and he liked it very much.
Sri Sri Guru Gauranga Gandharvika Giridhari-jiu!
