Topic: Sri Ramakrishna and devotion to Holy Mother
Venue: Durga Bari Temple, Houston, TX
Pravachana Karta: Sri Ramanujam Mukundagiri
Ramuji addressed a solemn crowd of about 25 people, most of them still mourning the demise of one of the founders of the temple.
The afternoon started off with a Nama Sankirtana in the memory of the departed soul, and then Ramuji talked at length about the glory of Kali Ma. He quoted several stories that described the different emotions of the Mother but maintained that Goddess Kali’s nature is full of love. He also discussed Sri Ramakrishna Parahamsa’s devotion to the Mother and in the midst managed to sing a 4 line song in Bengali, much to the pleasant surprise of the gathering.
Ramuji’s speech proved to be a solace for the bereaved crowd.
