Week Ahead 9 – 15 July

Dear Friends

After attending the recent Krishna Balaram Youth Group retreat featuring His Grace Agnideva Prabhu, Swarup Damodar Prabhu shared these thoughts: “An ardent longing over many years to hear live the kirtan of Agnideva Prabhu was at last fulfilled. It was the most heart fulfilling experience to hear and associate with Agnideva Prabhu. Its hard to imagine something surpassing his awe inspiring singing ability, but his humble personality easily does that. An attractive devotee that you just want to always be with. I cannot wait to once again be in his association at the six hour kirtan scheduled for Durban.”

Sunday, 12 July


Days such as Ekadasis are considered “mothers of devotion.” This Sunday, 12 July, our youth have arranged a spectacular day of devotion. Not only is this day especially auspicious because it falls within the holy month of Purushottam but we will also be hosting His Grace Agnidev Prabhu – arguably ISKCON devotees’ favourite kirtan and bhajan singer. Many devotees may recall his kirtan back in the day of tapes and tape recorders. He has held the attention of our Vaishnava community for over forty years.
