Week Ahead 17 – 24 June

Dear Friends
Purushottama Maas
17 June – 15 July
Sri Sri Radha Radhanath Temple will host a programme every evening from 7:00pm. After the Sandhya (Gaura) arati, we will read from Srimad Bhagavatam (sanskrit, word-for-word and Srila Prabhupada’s purport). The benefit of observing the recommended practices during the auspicious Purushottam month is said to equal sixteen Kartik months, and reading of Srimad Bhagavatam is the prime offering for this month. (For more information on this auspicious month of devotion and the recommended devotional practices to accrue optimal spiritual benefit please see our website, www.iskcondurban.net)
You can also give charity to Sri Sri Radha Radhanath in the form of anadaan, pushpadaan or Take Care of Krishna. Note that there are only eight days available to Take Care of Krishna. Extend the special benefit of this month to your family and friends through a devotional programme conducted by the devotees in your home.  We want to offer Srila Prabhupada 108 house programmes as a part of commemorating the 40th anniversary of Srila Prabhupada’s visit to Durban.  To book a house programme during the Purushottam month call Sri Nathji – 083 9505 111.
