Happy Holidays from Vibhu Caitanya & Final Week Ahead for 2015

Happy Holidays

Hare Krishna Friends,
This is our last Week Ahead for 2015. We at Sri Sri Radha Radhanath Temple would like to thank you for joining us in celebrating our 30 years of service to the community. Our year was filled with loads of action, from renovating and restoring the temple, the opening of Radhanath’s Gifts, winning yet another award (TripExpert), making the CNN list of top 10 places to visit in Durban, making major “green moves”, to unveiling the Master Plan. We want to accomplish so much more next year and hope that you will be a part of it. In 2016 we will focus more on devotional education and training, devotee care and begin construction based on the Master Plan. I would like this to be an offering of love to our beloved Founder Acharya His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada as we celebrate 50 years of ISKCON. 
Please remember my invitation to spend your holiday or take a gap year at the temple, is still open. During the holidays take advantage of absorbing yourself in the holy name, coming to the temple for an arati, bringing visitors to Govinda’s Restaurant or enter our family colouring in competition in the November/December Hare Krishna News. Whatever you choose to do, dedicate some time to the Temple and devotional service. And as we enter the last week of the Prabhupada Marathon please help distribute books. 
I wish you safe travels. May all roads lead you to your real home, Sri Sri Radha Radhanath Temple.
Your servant
Vibhu Caitanya Das
