For the first time the South African Book Distribution Ministry, Sanbonani Krishna, will host a National Sankirtan Festival. I call it a festival because it is a celebration of a tradition that is most dear to our past and present spiritual masters. Srila Prabhupada considered it our family business and the basis for spreading the Krishna Consciousness Movement.
His Grace Vaisesika Prabhu will be the facilitator. I am aware that many of you may not know Vaisesika Prabhu, but I can assure you that he will transform the way we approach our sadhana, devotional service, how we deal with one another, and most importantly, our book distribution. And he told me that its going to be a lot of fun.
Even if you rarely or never distribute books, I encourage you to come. Devotees from Cape Town, Port Elizabeth, East London, Bloemfontein, and Gauteng have already registered. You may register via: firstname.lastname@example.org or the Temple Reception 031 403 3328 or Krishna Baladev Das 082 551 8047.
I look forward to celebrating with you on Saturday.
