"I bow my head in eternal obeisance to my Gurudev, the best of acharyas,
Srila Bhakti Nirmal Acharya Maharaj. He is the ever vigilant, stalwart
guardian of the current of pure devotion whose highest form flows from our
most worshippable Sri Rupanuga Guru-varga in their exclusive dedication to
Mahabhav, Srimati Radharani."

This year, His Divine Grace has taken the decision to extend the nat mandir and build more rooms for the devotees to stay as each year more and more pilgrims come to celebrate Sri Nityananda Trayodasi. During the festival earlier this year, His Divine Grace also remarked that when the nat mandir was projected, Srila B.S. Govinda Dev-Goswami Maharaj wondered, "You are making it so big, but will you get so many devotees to come?" Today, everybody can see the vision of His Divine Grace manifest: the nat mandir is just enough to accommodate everyone nicely during the festival. It is also known that His Divine Grace wanted to bring Srila Govinda Maharaj here by helicopter, so he was making the nat mandir with the view that its roof would be spacious enough to accommodate a helicopter's landing.
