May Lord Jagannath smile at you…

Dearest Devotees, Friends and Well-wishers,
Hare Krishna! All glories to Srila Prabhupada, who introduced the Festival of
Chariots to the Western world. All glories to our magnificent Lord Jagannath.
This week there are two major events not to be missed:
1. The Launch of the 2013 Festival of Chariots
Wednesday, 12 December 2012, 6.30pm
Sri Sri Radha Radhanath Temple
2013 being the 25th anniversary of the Festival of Chariots, ISKCON’s foremost festival in South Africa, ISKCON’s foremost leader in preaching through attractive and all-inclusive festivals, His Holiness Indradyumna Swami, has agreed to oversee the festival. After months of strategizing, Maharaj and his team are ready to launch the concept, highlights and services available.
Also attending and enhancing the launch program further will be His Holiness
Bhakti Caitanya Swami and His Holiness Kadamba Kanana Swami.
You can be part of this “never-before-experienced” festival by attending the
launch and signing up to render devotion. As His Holiness Devamrita Swami
writes in his book, Bhakti Bhava, “Whatever our motive for coming to Krishna,
we have to move on to a dynamic heart investment.”  So, we appeal to you to
invest your time, energy and heart in the Festival of Chariots.
