Dear Friends

I invite you to dive deep into the ocean of devotional practice over Kartik. Kartik begins on Sunday, 16 October and ends on Monday, 14 November. The temple will be hosting numerous festivals to increase our hearing and chanting (50 Hour Kirtan, Japa Club on Sundays, Be a Sage Book Club, etc.) and devotional offerings (Monthly Sankirtan Festival). Lamp offerings will be held every evening after the Gaura-arati followed by light prasad at 8pm.

I look forward to seeing you and wish you a blissful Kartik.

Your servant

Vibhu Caitanya Das
