Dear Maharajas, Prabhus, Matajis, and Friends,
Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada. Hare Krishna.
The 9th Monthly Sankirtana Festival (MSF) will be this Saturday, July 28, from 1:00 to 4:30 p.m. It will be on the southeast corner -- OR the block on the east side -- of Union Square in Manhattan. (If it is raining, it will be inside the Union Square subway station.)
This Saturday again we will have a special guest, Govinda Prabhu, who leads beautiful kirtans at the 24-hourkirtan from Vrindavan. Other glorious kirtan leaders include Rama Raya Prabhu, and hopefully Nruhari Prabhu.
Please let us know if you will participate in the MSF.
Right after the MSF on Saturday, please feel free to join us at our weekly program at 5:30 p.m. at 26 2nd Ave. The program will have extra long ecstatic kirtans with Govinda and Rama Raya Prabhus leading. Bhagavad Gita class will be given by Atmanivedana and Rama Raya, together.
"This, our book distribution, is the most important task in our society. Therefore I am giving so much stress and I am working so hard on this. Because this is my life and soul according to the order of my Guru Maharaja. And by his grace it is to some extent successful. And I took it seriously. I take it seriously still now. That is my life and soul. I never tried in India to construct big temples or even in your country we didn't. I never tried. But I was selling personally books. That is the history." (Srila Prabhupada Room Conversation, Bombay, December 31, 1976)
"O best of the great personalities, I am not at all afraid of material existence, for wherever I stay I am fully absorbed in thoughts of Your glories and activities. My concern is only for the fools and rascals who are making elaborate plans for material happiness and maintaining their families, societies and countries. I am simply concerned with love for them." (S.B., 7.9.43)
Yours in the service of Srila Prabhupada, with gratitude,
Atmanivedana das and Subhangada dasi
