W e are happy to invite devotees from all over the world to come and experience the Silver Jubilee celebration of Navadvipa Mandala Parikrama organized by ISKCON Mayapur. This unique event will take place from 5th to 11th March 2014.
For the Parikrama in 2013, we had five parties with around 8,000 devotees led by HH Jayapataka Swami, HH Bhakti Charu Swami, HH Gopal Krishna Goswami, HH BVV Narasimha Swami, HH Lokanath Swami,HH Radharaman Swami, HH Bhakti Purushottama Swami, HH Gauranga Prem Swami and many others who gave their association during the parikrama.
Over the years ISKCON Mayapur has been working hard to provide extensive arrangements by setting up pandals, tents,prasadam arrangements, medical assistance and other facilities to ensure that the devotees during the Parikrama are able to focus on hearing and chanting about Lord Gauranga Mahaprabhu.
For this Silver Jubilee Celebration of the Parikrama, we expect about 10,000 devotees to participate from all parts of the world, but they will be broken into different parties. Last year we had two Bengali parties, one Hindi party, one Russian party and one English party. This year we are planning to increase one more party.
