World Holy Name Festival 2011

by Janananda Gosvami

Posted August 25, 2011

The annual World Holy Name festival is fast approaching Sept.10th -20th.

Please put these dates on the calendar and as much as possible organize or participate in increased performance of sankirtan and japa during these 11 days. More devotees going to more places, to hold more sankirtan festivals on the streets, in halls, in homes, in temples – any way you can. Increased Japa, It is a golden opportunity to focus more on the yuga dharma – Harinama sankirtan.

“If the surface of the globe is over-flooded with the chanting of the Hare Krsna mantra, the people of the world will be very, very happy.

(Purport to SB 4.24.11)

Let us work cooperatively together to spread the sankirtan, purify ourselves, please Srila Prabhupada, bring auspiciousness to the world and satisfaction to our hearts.

Contact myself - or Ekalavya prabhu if you would like to take an active role in organizing locally or internationally or being a part of this great yajna.
