Kirtan News : Bhagavad Gita Class & Kirtan at 5:30 p.m., Saturday, January 5, 26 2nd Ave.
Posted by nldas on 2013/1/4 20:53:37 (977 reads)

Dear Friends,

We are having our next meeting this Saturday, January 5, at 5:30 p.m.
at the storefront at 26 2nd Ave. (between 1st St. and 2nd St.). We
will start our Bhagavad Gita As It Is class at verse 18 of chapter 5.

We are looking forward to see you all for our first program in 2013.

There is no charge for attending our event. Donations are welcome,
but not required. Please R.S.V.P., if possible--although it's not
necessary.

At our last program, Danavir Goswami gave an amazing presentation on
Bhagavad Gita, verse 17 of chapter 5: " When one's intelligence, mind,
faith and refuge are all fixed in the Supreme, then one becomes fully
cleansed of misgivings through complete knowledge and thus proceeds
straight on the path of liberation." Durga made an amazing vegetarian
feast. Among the 33 who attended are: Atma, Subhie, Rahul, Nirmala
prema, Anup, Venu Gopal, Asth Mangala and family, Fred, Sudevi-priya,
Max, Pavitra, Durga, Oma, Barbara, AC, Danavir Goswami, Martin, Bh.
Govind, Jaya Radhe, Raul, Rasaraj, Sonal, Krishna Benny, and a family
from Ohio.

Om tat sat.

Best wishes,
Atma & Subhie

Kirtan News : Special Program w/ Ghaneshyam Prabhu, 5:30 p.m., Sat., Dec. 1, at 26 2nd Ave.
Posted by atma on 2012/11/30 23:48:49 (1400 reads)

Dear Friends,



We are having our next meeting this Saturday, December 1, at 5:30 p.m. at the storefront at 26 2nd Ave. (between 1st St. and 2nd St.). We will start our Bhagavad Gita As It Is class at verse 12 of chapter 5. Once again, fortunately, the special speaker will be our monk and our friend, Ghanashyam Prabhu.



We will begin the first kirtan on time, at 5:30. There is no charge for attending our event. Donations are welcome, but not required. Please R.S.V.P., if possible--although it's not necessary.


At our last program Ghaneshyam led the first kirtan and gave class on verses 8-11 chapter 5 of the Bhagavad Gita As It Is: "A person in the divine consciousness, although engaged in seeing, hearing, touching, smelling, eating, moving about, sleeping and breathing, always knows within himself that he actually does nothing at all. Because while speaking, evacuating, receiving, or opening or closing his eyes, he always knows that only the material senses are engaged with their objects and that he is aloof from them. One who performs his duty without attachment, surrendering the results unto the Supreme Lord, is unaffected by sinful action, as the lotus leaf is untouched by water. The yogis, abandoning attachment, act with body, mind, intelligence and even with the senses, only for the purpose of purification." Kaliya Krishna led the second kirtan. Durgarani made an amazing vegetarian feast. Amongst those who attended are: Atma, Subhie, Kirtan Ron, Venu Gopal, Kaliya Krishna, Anup, Meaghan, Regina, Avi, Max, Rama Raya, Pradyumna, Ghaneshyam, and Ananda.



Om tat sat.



Best wishes,

Atma & Subhie

Kirtan News : Saturday, Sept. 29, 1:00-4:30 pm, Union Sq.--11th MSF; Report on 10th MSF
Posted by atma on 2012/9/19 22:10:00 (1073 reads)











Dear Maharajas, Prabhus, and Matajis,


Please accept our humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada.


The next (11th) Monthly Sankirtana Festival (MSF) will be on Saturday, September 29, 2012 from 1:00 to 4:30 p.m. It will be on the southeast corner of Union Square (or possibly on the southwest corner). (If it is raining, it will be inside the Union Square subway station.)


Please let us know if you want to participate in the next monthly sankirtan festival.


What follows is our Report on Srila Prabhupada's 10th Monthly Sankirtana Festival (MSF). The 10th MSF took place on Saturday, August 25 , 2012, from 1:00-4:30p.m. in Union Square. Over 40 devotees and friends of Krishna participated.


Videos of the 10th MSF can be seen at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h7ANvk ... dex=15&feature=plpp_video

Photos of many wonderful devotees at the 10th MSF are attached to this email. Additional Photos will follow in a second email.


Chandrashekar Maharaj, a devotee from Detroit, Govinda Prabhu (from Vrindavana), and Atmanivedana das led ecstatic kirtans. The book distributors included Candrasekhar Maharaja, Atma, Subhangada, Matthew, Ramananda, Venu Gopal, Sundarananda, Bhakta Govind, and a couple of Matajis from Boston. We distributed about 80 of Srila Prabhupada's books.


Thanks to all of you who participated and also to those who supported our preaching event from behind the scenes. Amongst the 40 or so devotees who participated are: Atma, Subhie, Chandrasekar Maharaj, Bhakta Govind, Avi, Kokila, Venu Gopal, Josiah, Matthew, Ramananda, Prabhu Kripa, Ashta Mangal and his family, Om, Rahul, Govinda, Jivatma, Nirmala, Sameer, Rama Raya, Fred, Aditi, Rachel, Nandlal Gaur, Max, Premarnava, and groups of wonderful devotees from each of Boston and Detroit.


"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.


"Print as many books as possible, this is my real pleasure. By printing these books of our Krishna Conscious philosophy in so many languages we can actually inject our movement into the masses of persons all over the world, especially there in the Western countries and we can literally turn whole nations into Krishna Conscious nations."

Srila Prabhupada, Letter to Hrdayananda, December 21, 1974.


Your servants, with gratitude,

Atmanivedana das & Subhangada dasi

Kirtan News : 9th MSF--this Saturday, July 28, 1:00 to 4:30 p.m., Union Sq.
Posted by atma on 2012/7/28 23:25:58 (2286 reads)

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
