Nigerian Swami admires President Jagdeo’s “transcendental mind”

Bhakti Vasudeve Swami, of Nigeria meets President Bharrat Jagdeo

GEORGETOWN –After leading a spiritual journey over the weekend Bhakti Vasudeve Swami, of Nigeria paid a courtesy call on President Bharrat Jagdeo at the Office of the President before departing Guyana.

Members of the International Society accompanied the leader who has influenced over 20 African descendent devotees from North America to follow in his footsteps for Krishna Consciousness during his meeting with the President.

The meeting was considered a special occasion for the Swami who described President Jagdeo as a person with a transcendental mind.

“People who champion causes for ecological harmony and spiritual peace are not people of this planet. They may be standing here and living with us but their mindsets are completely beyond capacity so the people of Guyana are very lucky,” Vasudeve Swami said.

On June 26, the International Society for Krishna Consciousness celebrated Ratha Yatra, a popular festival celebrated in June that was highlighted by the rolling of the Ratha-Yatra chariot along the streets of Georgetown and a special address on peace, ecological harmony and Spiritual Unity by Vasudeve Swami at the Merriman’s Mall.

He described Guyana as a “heavenly planet,” with unique vegetation unlike any other grown in other parts of the world and admired the hospitality of the people. (GINA)
