114th Vyasa Puja Ceremony Invitation letter

Dear Devotees, Friends and Well-Wishers,

All glories to His Divine Grace Srila Bhakti Siddhanta Saraswati Goswami Thakur Prabhupada and Guru-Parampara (disciplic succession).

Please accept the blessing of my beloved Srila Gurudeva, His Divine Grace Srila Bhakti Pramode Puri Goswami Maharaj, and convey the same to all members in your congregation.

On the 19th of October, 2012 we will be celebrating our Srila Gurudeva’s 114th Vyasa-Puja festival at our Jaganath Puri Temple (Sri Gopinath Gaudiya Math, Chakratirtha Rd, Puri [Orissa]).  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 18th of October, with Mangal Arati and Temple Parikram at 4am, and will continue through the evening of the next day. 

I was hoping to be able to invite you personally, but my present preaching schedule abroad only allows for sending this invitation letter. Therefore, I am humbly requesting you to please excuse any offence, and graciously attend the programs as per the following schedule to the best of your ability.
