Similar to earlier years, ISKCON Mayapur had a week filled with festivals glorifying Srila Prabhupada on occasion of His Vyasa puja. The bramacharis, other temple staff, international devotees, Bhaktivedanta National School, and Sri Mayapur International School all held their own celebrations. These festivals enabled many devotees to read out their offerings of love to Srila Prabhupada in association of other devotees.
On 6th Sep morning, hundreds of devotees gathered to celebrate Srila Prabhupada’s appearance in the Pancha tattva extension. Devotees had worked tirelessly for many days to prepare a beautiful flower laden Vyasasana for Srila Prabhupada. Many senior devotees including Srila Prabhupada’s disciples were present that day to read their offerings. Later Srila Prabhupada was presented with a giant offerings book that was lovingly prepared for him. The program concluded with abhishek, guru-puja, and offering of prasadam to Srila Prabhupada. All the community devotees then came together to honor Srila Prabhuapda’s maha-prasadam.
