On February 25th, 2013, Shri Surya Narayan Mandir was extremely blessed and graced by the presence of Bal Shuk, Gopeshji Maharaj.
Shri Gopeshji was brought to our mandir by Pandit Gajadhar Sukul of Suriname, on Magh Purnima during our Shiva Avishekam services. Prior to Shri Gopeshji’s pravachan, Panditji Sukul performed puja by eloquent and precise chanting of the traditional sanskrit mantras. Puja was sponsored by our Mandir’s Spiritual Leader, Pandit Ram Hardowarji and his family.
Shri Gopeshji was born and raised in the land of Lord Shri Krishna, Vrindavan, India and has been a Vyasji as a young boy since the age of 10. He is well versed in the katha of Lord Shri Krishna and has mastered the Shrimad Bhagavatam, Shrimad Bhagavad Gita and Ramayan.
His serene and calm style of pravachan and grace when explaining our shastras captivated even the youngest child’s attention.
All the Devotees of Shri Surya Narayan Mandir who were present during his message were blessed to have received his darshan.
His knowledge of our shastras left all devotees with an awe and a need for more.
