Sharing the gift of Krishna Consciousness

Dear Friends,
We trust that your Kartik has enthusiastically started. The initiative of getting as many people to offer lamps either in their homes or at the temple has exceeded our expectations with five thousand Kartik packs already distributed. This special Kartik pack includes a fold out altar, a song book, CD with the Damodarastakam and other prayers, and lamps. We appeal to you all to visit people, offer them these free Kartik packs and encourage them to offer lamps to Lord Damodar during this special month. This is a wonderful way to share the gift of Krishna consciousness.
The Caitanya-caritamrita course has embarked on an empowerment project. The idea behind this is to get as many people exposed to the chanting of the holy name and Srila Prabhupada’s teachings. In light of this three devotees are pioneering three innovative projects. Taralika Dasi is hosting senior citizens in her area and treating them to a lunch-time program of chanting, discussion and prasadam. Pravina’s heart goes out to the mentally challenged and is hosting a similar program at the Coastal Mental Health while Rangadevi  Dasi is conducting a program in Radhe Shyam Das’ home in Welbedacht every Monday. We congratulate all these devotees and wish them well in their endeavours. 
Please note the detailed listing of programs for this week:
Wed, 31 Oct: Temple maintenance crew program by Prahladananda Das at 10.30am
