Dear Devotees, Friends and Well-wishers,
All glories to His Divine Grace Srila Bhakti Siddhanta Saraswati Goswami Thakur Prabhupada and Guru-Parampara (disciplic succession).
On the 1st of October, 2011 we will be celebrating our Srila Gurudeva’s 113th Vyasa-Puja festival at our Vrindavan Dauji Temple (Sri Gopinath Gaudiya Math, Gopeswar Road). It is my humble request that you attend the programs along with all your family members and friends so that we may serve our friends, the Vaisnavas. Our programs will start from the day before the anniversary, the 30th of September, with Vrindavan Dham Parikram at 3:30pm and will continue through the evening of the next day. I was hoping to be able to invite you to come with my physical presence, but my present preaching abroad does not allow me to be in India at that time. Therefore, I am humbly requesting you to please not take any offense, and graciously attend the programs as per the following schedule with your best ability.
