Week Ahead 21-27 October 2021

Dear Friends

The most auspicious month of Kartik has begun! We are elated to welcome you to the daily temple programs. Last weekend we experienced a powerful restart to the Sunday Love Feast. All who attended left inspired and eager to return this week. Thank you to those who contributed to the insightful questions, answers, and discussion.
During this month, as we invite increased grace from Sri Sri Radha Radhanath, let us also deeply consider the tragic plight of the people in Bangladesh. By now you would have received extensive information from us detailing the atrocities suffered by the devotees there. We invite you to raise your voice against the violence suffered by minorities, which includes the complete destruction of our ISKCON Temple in Bangladesh. More voices raised means more international pressure to stop the discrimination of minorities. Sri Sri Radha Radhanath Temple will host a prayer vigil for Bangladesh Minorities on Saturday 23 October @11am. Please come and let us together do our part to end this horror.
