CHAKRA Reporter to Leave Mayapur Soon
By Vipramukhya Swami

CHAKRA (Mayapur, India) - February 14, 2001: The last three days of the GBC meetings won't be covered on CHAKRA because I've made a decision to go to Jagannath Puri with Svavasa and Ramabhadra Prabhus. The GBC meetings will conclude on February 19, 2001.

The conclusion of the meetings, the final votes of the GBC, can't usually be reported on CHAKRA until they are released by the Executive Committee Members, and that doesn't happen until the resolutions are reviewed by a lawyer appointed by the GBC Body. In past years this has often been about a month after the meetings conclude.

In other words, past years' experience tells us that we don't usually know the final outcome of the GBC meetings until the minutes are officially published, about a month after the GBC meetings end. Votes are taken by ballot and tabulated by the GBC Secretariat, so even GBC members and Deputies don't know the final outcome immediately.

For that reason I've thought to take advantage of the fact that Ramabhadra and Svavasa are going to Puri. I've decided to join their group. In past years I have done this also, and reported our pilgrimage on CHAKRA.

This year, however, I will not only be spending 10 days in Puri (during which I hope to finish writing a novel I've been working - see http://timegods.com), but afterwards I'll be flying to Kathmandu, and then to Jomsom, Nepal, on the bank of the Kali-Gandaki River in the Himalaya Mountains. This is where the Salagram Silas can be found along the bank of the river (see http://chantandbehappy.com/vswami/giriraja.htm ). From here I'll be hiking up to Muktinath, a famous place of pilgrimage.

I'll be reporting all of this on CHAKRA with spectacular photos.

Join with me as I explore Jagannath Puri and the Himalayas in Nepal here on CHAKRA.
