|I’m feeling like a ‘man of few words’ today. Actually, the weekend practically wore me out. Tomorrow starts a 5-day intensive cookery course in the morning session, and reading from my biographical work of Prabhupada for the afternoon session. All this is part of the yearly convention held here at the castle.
I’m also a little sick – heavy sore throat – and although I’m taking some Ayurvedic medicine, I’ll save my ‘voice’, and I’ll let the pictures do the talking.
Here’s a grand view of the castle. I’ll give you some of the history of the place tomorrow.
The well-stocked boutique. One of the biggest and well-stocked of it’s kind I have ever seen.
A view from inside the gift shop. Local tourists (40,000 a year) always find something they like here.
The Gang’s all here! Take your pick of the many gods and goddesses.
Some local confectionery. Actually this is from a farm-temple in Germany.
The bakery. Delicious aromas waft out of here each morning. Fresh crusty bread!
Resident baker Nadia Behari making some biscuits.
Le pain – fresh from the oven.
I did a trot around the grounds. Here’s some of the local mums and dads.
Where’s the nectar?
This local resident (below) feels right at home. I think he senses he won’t find himself on the restaurant menu.
And last but not least, the Ultimate Temple Management Committee.
