Week Ahead 14 – 20 June: Be A Sage

Dear Friends
Hare Krishna
We invite you to a simple but powerful way to enhance your every day – read one chapter of Bhagavad-gita a day (CHAD). By reciting Bhagavad-gita, we get to know Krishna better. Simply by giving our attention to this everyday for a minimum of 7 minutes, we accumulate tremendous amount of spiritual wealth that can never be taken away. Srila Prabhupada comments: “Anywhere Bhagavad-gita is chanted, that place becomes a tirtha [a holy place].” (Srila Prabhupada Lilamrta)
Devotees across the world have joined this programme. You can read their testimonials or register (if you like) at http://www.readchad.com
We are in the process of setting up our own CHAD support. You can join our mailing group by sending a mail to temple@iskcondurban.net. Alternatively you can download the convenient verse and translation format from http://www.readchad.com/downloads-2/
You will find attached the “Reading Target in Pages per Day”. This guide will help you complete all the major Vaishnava literatures from within one month to 5 years.
