Week Ahead 5-11 August 2022

Dear Friends

This week has been highlighted by two major accomplishments:
1. Bhakti Yoga Society returned to campus after two-and-a-half years to distribute prasada and share bhakti wisdom with many eager students. Sharing Krishna consciousness at universities and colleges distinctly pleased Srila Prabhupada. Please contact Rukmini (084 579 1080) or Satyarani (079 934 4401) if you would like to support this endeavour.
2. The Temple was voted as the “Best Tourist Attraction” in Chatsworth by the Rising Sun Reader’s Choice Awards 2022.
