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 25th of November, 2015 we will be celebrating our Srila Gurudeva’s 17th disappearance festival at our Sri Mayapur Temple, Sri Gopinath Gaudiya Math; Ishodyan, Nadia (W.B), India. 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 24th of November, with Mangal Arati and Temple/Tulsi Parikram at 4:00 A.M, then will continue through the evening of the next day.
I was hoping to be able to invite you personally, but my present Kartik-Vrata schedule 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.
