Did you know? 3rd September 2008

When, in the 18th century, the British Government decided to take away the land belonging to the Mantralaya Matha, the locals appealed to them to not do so. A committee under Sir Thomas Munroe took over. Sir Thomas Munroe decided to visit the Brundavana himself. After spending a few minutes inside, he came back a completely changed man saying he actually spoke to Swamiji and received his blessings.

The British did not touch the land after that, an event recorded in the official Madras gazeteer!
