The Bhadra Campaign 2018

A Life Changing Event

In the Srimad-Bhagavatam it is stated “If on the full moon day of the month of Bhadra one places Srimad-Bhagavatam on a golden throne and gives it as a gift, he will attain the supreme transcendental destination.” SB 12.13.13

This verse promises that by the simple gifting or distributing of Srimad-Bhagavatam on Bhadra purnima, 24th September 2018 (please check your local Vaisnava Calendar to confirm the date for your country), one will attain both entrance to the spiritual world and direct association with Lord Krishna.

As part of the Go Matsya initiative led by HG Vaisesika Prabhu (NA BBT) and HG Satyanarayana Prabhu (BBT Europe) to preserve and propagate Vedic literature, the Bhadra Campaign invites you to embrace this life changing investment.

I am pleased to announce that the first National Sankirtan Festival, held on Saturday, 11 June at the Sri Sri Radha Radhanath Temple was a success.Over 200 Devotees attended the festival, which was facilitated by His Grace Vaisesika Prabhu.
