Come join us for the 2nd of Srila Prabhupada's Monthly Sankirtan Festivals!
Location: Union Square, at corner of 14 St. and Broadway, across street from Whole Foods (in Manhattan).
Day: Saturday, December 17, 2011 (maybe the biggest shopping day of the year)
Time: 1:00 to 4:30 p.m.
PLEASE LET US KNOW IF YOU ARE COMING!!!
It is a wonderful opportunity to come out and spend time with one another and share Krsna Consciousness with others! Come out and be part of the kirtan group, help distribute books, and/or give a cookie or a smile!
Please dress in warm clothes (coat, scarf, gloves, long underwear, thick socks shoes/boots).
Last month our event was super ecstatic. There were 29 devotees. Kirtans were amazing. We distributed 88 of Srila Prabhupada’s books and 500 cookies. This time we will have 1000 cookies.
Atmanivedana das and Subhangada dasi will be organizing this monthly festival, and will be assisted by Gauranga Prema das and other great devotees. Please contact Atma and Subhie to confirm that you will participate or to ask any questions. You can reach Atma and Subhie by e-mail at email@example.com. (At the sankirtan site on Saturday, it may be better to send a text message than to call because it will be loud there.)
“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 Conversation: Bombay, India, December 31, 1976.
Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu indicates that the distribution of the Hare Krsna maha-mantra should be performed by combined forces. Although He is the Supreme Personality of Godhead, He laments, "How can I act alone? How can I alone pick the fruit and distribute it all over the world?" .... This indicates that all classes of devotees should combine to distribute the Hare Kṛṣṇa maha-mantra without consideration of the time, place or situation.
