Help Needed for Nigeria Preaching

by Yadhunath das

Posted June 4, 2011

For about two years I have been involved in a college and youth preaching program in Nigeria. A few of the larger Nigerian cities, including Lagos, the capital, have ISKCON temples, and in 2009 HH Bhakti Dhira Damodara Swami and HH Kavicandra Swami sent me to Pune, India, to be trained in college preaching at the ISKCON centre there.

There are not less than a hundred colleges and universities in this country. Roughly half of the Nigerian population is Muslim; most of the rest is Christian. I believe it is important that systematic and dynamic preaching be done here to infuse interested people with Krishna consciousness.

I have a proposal for improving the college preaching program in Nigeria with some modern facilities. Some of the technical aids that could be utilized are a laptop computer for PowerPoint presentations, a laser printer for outputting preaching materials and small booklets, two projectors and a projection screen, four whiteboards and a public address system with three microphones and three speakers. Getting a van would also help us in travelling to the various universities and coleges here.

We would be glad and most appreciative if devotees could extend their mercy to us and help to provide us with some or all of these facilities. I assure you that by the combined mercy of guru and Krishna, and by the mercy of all the Vaishnavas, we will try to do something here. If you can help us in any way, please contact Bhakti Dhira Damodara Maharaj at bdds.bts -at-
