Week Ahead 25 November – 1 December 2021

Dear Freinds
For devotees, the Kartik month is the prime opportunity to fill their hearts with the Lord’s mercy. What opens the heart to more mercy is the sharing of good fortune with others. And that’s what the December Book Marathon is all about – expanding the lotus of the heart by sharing mercy to others. We invite you to experience the ecstasy of sharing during December. Sharing transcendental knowledge, especially in the form of Srila Prabhupada’s books is the greatest of welfare works. The book marathon has begun in earnest and we have set a goal of only 10,000 books. We’ve already reached 2000 books within the first week! Every Saturday, the temple will host a sankirtan festival – an inspiring morning class, a light breakfast, and then going out in teams for book distribution. Teams will return at lunchtime to be served a lunch feast.
All service to Krishna was pleasing to Srila Prabhupada, yet it was vividly evident that Srila Prabhupada was especially inclined to book distribution. His book distributors experienced special mercy from him in reciprocation for their efforts. We too can get in on this mercy action – connect with Radha Raman and Priya Kishori (082 806 1646) to find out how you can get involved.
