A Sankirtan award distribution ceremony took place in Temple on 19th February morning. This year Mayapur Temple enjoyed a special success by securing the first position worldwide for annual distribution in 2014. The ceremony took place to honor top book distributors connected to Mayapur. These included Banamali Mukund prabhu, Bharadwaj prabhu , Kamal Nayan prabhu and devotees in name of HH Jay Pataka Swami who were among the top 15 individual contributors worldwide. HG Gourdham prabhu, HG Venu dhari prabhu and HG Sankarsan Nitai prabhu were also honored for playing an important role in managing book distribution.
The results for last year distribution were released at end of January, 2015 on World Sankirtan Newsletter website (https://www.wsnl.net/hist/WSN2014c.htm#pageT) . Although the results were announced in Temple on Nityananda Trayodasi, award distribution took place yesterday in presence of HH Jay Pataka Swami, the prime motivator for devotees in Mayapur. HH Gopal Krishna Goswami, HH Bhakti Purusotamma Swami and HG Pragosh Prabhu were also present on the occasion. HH Jay Pataka Swami encouraged devotees to work harder to distribute Srila Prabhupada’s books. He thanked HH Gopal Krishna Goswami and attributed success to his blessings.
