Week Ahead 1 – 7 March

Dear Friends
Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu desires to spread the chanting of the holy names and devotion to the Supreme Person far and wide. You can help Him in His mission. The Durban Festival of Chariots is just 28 days away. This year marks the 30th anniversary of the festival being held at the Durban Beachfront. This festival is the largest and most far-reaching attempt in KZN to help fulfill Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu’s desire. Please collect flyers to distribute to your community. You can also help raise funds by collecting a receipt book from the Book Table this evening. And if you are on social media, then please like and share the festival page:  https://www.facebook.com/festivalofchariotsDBN/. Remember to tag both temples (@DurbanKrishna and @NewJagannathPuriPHOENIX) when sharing posts as well.
