HH Mahavishnu Swami and his team “The Salty Dogs” again embark on another adventure on the Jaladuta, this time starting 50km south of Yamunatri and ending up in Vrindavan.
At Yamuna Nagar and Delhi we had press conferences - giving us dozens of newspaper articles and television coverage. Again in Vrindavan we were covered by 3 newspapers and one TV channel. At one stage the Jaladuta got smashed up and the devotees got stranded on a rock. We managed to tie a rope from a rock to the island and back to the rock, so the devotees could tight-rope across. One slip and your a goner. Mahavishnu Swami at 67 years of age managed it, a green beret would have shaken in his boots. After Mangal arti we would read from HH Mukunda Goswamis new book, ‘miracle on second avenue’ - absolute nectar.
