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
