Yesterday was Tamal and Today was Gaura

Blackened skies thundered above, causing the ground to rumble. The ocean opened above everyone's head and millions of gallons washed the city. A forecast 100F was shot down by the power of the storm. Yesterday we were showered by the torrential glories of His Holiness Tamal Krishna Goswami. Devotees flew in from different parts of the world in order to honor this great personality. Some devotees were visiting from Houston, some from England and even several devotees from Australia. His Holiness Lokanatha Swami, His Holiness Rtadhvaja Swami, and His Holiness Giriraja Swami also attended to share their memories of their dear godbrother.

By the mercy of the great devotees the fire of material existance is drenched by the torrents of mercy.

In contrast to yesterday's Tamal (blue-black) sky, today a golden colored haze enshrined the temple's domes as the entire sky was lit by a bright Gaura (golden yellow).
