  6. Dear Swamiji,
    It was lovely to hear your talks in Dubai. Thank you so much for sharing your time with us.

  7. I totally agree with SUMMER (UAE) that Swami’s talks are lovely. The reason is not that he is an orator by birth or by learning. It is because that when ever Swami Govinda talks it is from his heart that the flow comes – in effect – it is The Lord’s words. Naturally it should be sweet and lovely – Hari Om.
