Polish sannyasi and dear friend of Nimaihuset Swami B.A. Sridhar Maharaj opens for Gurumaharaj (Swami B.A. Paramadvaiti Maharaj), doing the Maha Mantra in his own fantastic, bluesy way, accompanied by some groovy beats, handclaps, and a child-like choir of response-singing devotees. 

Nimaihuset ki jay!
