Week Ahead 2-8 August 2018

Dear Friends


Festivals help deepen our relationship with the Supreme Lord by awarding greater opportunity to render devotional service. The great news is that festival season is almost upon us.

Festivals cannot be possible without devotees. With over 30000 visitors expected over the festive days, we sincerely rely on our community to come forward and render service.

Join #TeamLove – a group of people coming together to render devotion. Email temple@iskcondurban.net with #TeamLove in the subject line and we will contact you. Or you can WhatsApp #TeamLove to 062 526 3606. I look forward to seeing you at the temple and to you joining #TeamLove.

Hare Krishna!
