Blossoming Devotion

Dear Friends,

Please accept our best wishes. All glories to Srila Prabhupada. All glories to
our beautiful Sri Sri Radha Radhanath.

September is turning out to be not only the season of blossoming flowers but
also the season of blossoming devotion. On Monday we celebrated the fantastic
Vyasa puja ceremony for His Holiness Bhakti Charu Swami. Maharaj wanted to
bring Srila Prabhupada into focus. So, it turned out to be a festival
celebrating our Founder Acarya, His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami
Prabhupada, with grandeur and heartfelt emotion.

His Holiness Kadamba Kanana Swami is joining us tomorrow.

Take out your calendars and make note the following programmes:

Wed, 19 Sept: Kirtan at Shyamlal Prabhu’s home with Lokanath Swami 7pm

New Jagannath Puri programme with Kadamba Kanana Swami at 7pm

On Sunday we celebrate the divine appearance Srimati Radharani, the
personification of the divine pleasure potency of Sri Krishna. Srila Prabhupada
writes in Srimad Bhagavatam 2.3.23, “Srimati Radharani is a tenderhearted
feminine counterpart of the supreme whole…”

The festival is an all day affair. We have the unique opportunity to see Her
divine lotus feet. The Deities will be be dressed in three new outfits through
the day, there will be an abhisek ceremony, boat festival and kirtan and
devotees, do not see the Lord with their eyes, but with their ears, so we have
wonderful classes lined up for you to fully absorb you and allow devotion to
blossom in your hearts. The festival schedule follows.

Following Radhastami we are very fortunate to once again host His Holiness
Lokanath Swami who will conduct his stirring Bhagavat Kathas, enlivening all
the devotees with the pastimes of Radha and Krishna.
