Recently there was a Program at Krishnanagar ‘Uttar Shib Bari’, Bagula road, on 30th July, 2014, for the occasion of the anniversary of that temple.
Including 12 foreign devotees, a total of 30 devotees from Mayapur participated in that program. They arrived at 4:30 PM, and started Harinam Sankirtan on street called “Nagar Sankirtan” at 5 o’clock, this continued for one and half hours. Around 300 local devotees took part in that Harinam Sankirtan Party. We then came back to the stage at 6:30PM.
Our stage program began with mangalacaran, Harinam Kirtan followed by Bengali bhajans led by HG. Deba Dharma Prabhu.
Then there was a short and sweet lecture by HG. Paradheya Pr., a foreign devotee and disciple of His Grace A.C.B.V. Swami Srila Prabhupada and his Bengali wife Her Grace Caitanya Devi Dasi.
Afterwards HG. Madhur Nitai Pr. led an ecstatic Harinam kirtan with great enthusiasm for half an hour. We then introduced our foreign devotees, who came from 6 different countries, followed by harinam kirtan led by our chief singer, HG. Mathuresh Pr. merging everyone into the ocean of bliss of Krishna consciousness.
Around five hundred people participated in this program. Apart from all these scheduled programs we also had dry prasadam and Srila Prabhupada’s book distribution on the streets.
Finally, there was the most attractive part of the evening for everyone, ‘ISKCON CINEMA’, all of the participants were watching with great attention for one full hour. Devotees’ prasadam were taken care by HG. Surya Gour Pr. and local devotees prasadam were arranged by local committee. Thanks to Uttar Shib Bari Committee, who invited the ‘Mayapur Local Preaching’.
Under the guidance of HG. Manmohan Gopal Pr., we had a wonderful program, with all the participants enjoying with rejoicing hearts.
Harinam Sankirtan Ki Jay!
