On June 15, 2008, His Holiness Giriraj Swami and His Holiness Indradyumna Swami celebrated the Panihati Cida Dahi Festival at the Panca-tattva temple in Laguna Beach, California. Giriraj Swami was asked to give the main talk, and Indradyumna Swami too gave a wonderful talk. Both spoke eloquently on the glories of Srila Raghunath dasa Gosvami in relation to the Cida Dahi festival. This MP3 recording includes both lectures.
The festival concluded with the sumptuous, world-famous feast of the Laguna Beach temple. The feast included samosas, chutney, dahi wada, pooha (cida), a pastry with corn and panir, a spiral savory, a rich sabji, a drink, and a four- or five-tier cake with icing and strawberries.
