World Enlightenment Day

Dear highly esteemed devotees,
Please accept my heartfelt obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada!
Saturday, December 17 is World Enlightenment Day (WED). Historically, on this day, all over the world, devotees go out to distribute Srila Prabhupada’s books. Everyone is invited to do his or her level best on this day. Each person’s effort is important, however humble it may seem at the time; because, a lot of devotees each doing a little, is powerful. Each individual contribution adds up fast.

 

Prepare ahead of time by getting your BBT books ready to distribute on this day. Leaders can inform their communities and make facility so that everyone can go out in their local areas for this event.


In the Srimad-Bhagavatam 10.2.37, Srila Prabhupada writes:
The word kriyasu, meaning “by manual labor” or “by work,” is important in this verse. One should engage in practical service to the Lord. In our Krsna consciousness movement, all our activities are concentrated upon distributing Krsna literature. This is very important. One may approach any person and induce him to read Krsna literature so that in the future he also may become a devotee. Such activities are recommended in this verse.
Kriyasu yas tvac-carnaravindayoh.
Such activities will always remind the devotees of the Lord’s lotus feet. By fully concentrating on distributing books for Krsna, one is fully absorbed in Krsna. This is samadhi.


Those who go out to distribute Srila Prabhupada’s books not only feel directly connected to Krsna and the great Acaryas, but, while doing so, they also bestow the greatest benefit upon the people they meet.


Presently, the people in the world are confused and worried about the future. They are distinctly feeling the “pinprick” that Srila Prabhupada speaks of in his preface to Srimad-Bhagavatam. Srila Prabhupada’s books not only offer such people real solace; they also show them practically how to help themselves and others.


As this year is the 50 th anniversary of the founding of ISKCON, this year’s Srila Prabhupada book distribution marathon and World Enlightenment Day are also particularly important.


Please participate and bring as many devotees along with you as possible!


Thank you very much!


Your servant,
Vaisesika Dasa

National Sankirtan Festival Report

Submitted by Vibhu Caitanya Das

Dear Devotees,

Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada. All glories to the Sankirtan Mission of Lord Caitanya.

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.

Vaisesika Prabhu transformed the way we approach book distribution and our personal devotional practice. I am sharing all the resources we have gathered from his presentation for your use and also to share with your communities. I encourage you all to read his book “Our Family Business” and use the Monthly Sankirtan Festival to help every devotee achieve their 50 book quota for ISKCON 50th Anniversary.

I trust this finds you well.

Your servant,

Vibhu Caitanya Das
