Week Ahead 30 September – 6 October 2022

Dear Friends

Last weekend, ISKCON Durban Sri Sri Radha Radhanath Temple hosted the One Spirit Fest at Durban Beachfront. This event was financially supported by the National Department of Sports, Arts, and Culture and carefully designed to promote the teachings of Srila Prabhupada, which are so relevant to the multi-cultural context of South Africa, the festival successfully engaged people from various backgrounds in experiencing Krishna consciousness. We thank all the devotees and service providers involved in this humble attempt to spread the mercy of Lord Caitanya in Durban.
