A special two-day celebration of Sannyasa as an Ashrama, coinciding with the 50th anniversary of H.H. Jayapataka Swami Maharaja accepting Sannyasa from Srila Prabhupada in 1970 on the Radhastami day is organised for two days- 3rd & 4th Oct.
Reaching 50 years as a sannyasi is a first in ISKCON, and HH Jayapataka Swami Maharaja is the longest standing sannyasi in the Gaudiya line and the ISKCON movement with us today. Let us all join to celebrate the Sannyasa Ashrama which is glorious for ISKCON and understand the deeper aspects of this ashram through a series of lectures by various ISKCON and Vaisnava sannyasis.
We are having a two day session – 3rd and 4th October between 6.30pm & 9.30pm Indian time. We have a line up of Sannyasis presenting from the ISKCON Sannyasa Ministry, GBC Executive Committee, the Madhva & Sri Vaisnava Sampradayas, the Gaudiya Matha, and HH Jayapataka Swami Maharaja himself. They will talk about the Sannyasa Asrama from the Vaisnava scriptures; Bhagavad Gita, Srimad Bhagavatam & Caitanya Caritamrta, the narration of the Sannyasa lila of Caitanya Mahaprabhu, the lives of Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Saraswati Thakura, Srila Prabhupada, and their teachings.
We would request one and all to join and hear from all these great personalities in this program spread over 2 days. We are also going to have some interactive parts to the program including an online Quiz.
Looking forward to all your participation. All the sessions will be in English and we will also have arrangements for Bengali, Hindi, and other languages.
