The 13th graduation ceremony at the Mayapur Institute (MI) took place on the 5th of March at the Prabhupada Samadhi Auditorium. This year it was a special event, it was the biggest batch of students graduating in MI's history with the inaugural batch of Russian Bhakti-sastri adding the extra celebration.
The course really sobered me, the way I see and deal with people. It was the teachers. They empowered and challenged me to apply what I was learning. To complete the course, I had to discipline my mind and senses more than ever. But I also tasted more love and trust with the devotees than I ever have. I want to learn more, and teach others.
