Some of the ISKCON leaders who participated in the festival were, Bhakti Vijnana Goswami, Bhakti Ananta Krishna Goswami, Indradyumna Swami, Prahladananda Swami, Gopal Krishna Goswami, Sachinandan Swami, A.C. Bhakti Vaibhav Swami, Bhakti Bhringa Govinda Swami, Nitai Chaitanya Goswami, Mahadyuti das, Chaitanya Chandra Charan das, Pancharatna das, Vedavyas das, Vijay das, Audarya Dham das, Patita Pavan das and Basu Ghosh das.

Dear Bhasu Ghosh Prabhu

To be honest with you, I am a bit surprised by the name of the festival as mentioned in your presentation:
“Sadhu Sanga annual festival of Russian devotees”, as generally “saddhus”, out of humility, do not advertize themselves as such…

So, maybe it is an approximative translation from Russian, is it?

As it is, we do not really understand whether the saddhus are the Russian devotees gathering together annually (”of Russian devotees”) or whether the senior devotees present are to be understood to be the saddhus (which may jolly well, after all, be the case!).

Hoping this finds our dear and respected erudite scholar well,

Your menial servant in the service of Srila Prabhupada

PS: who is H.G. Acharya Sanskritananda Prabhu (whose name is displayed on a door) ?

Is he a Russian devotee ?

Many of the pictures taken of the festival that I uploaded to the internet were taken by my translator during the festival, Bhakta Ilya Korostov, of Rostov-on-Don, in South Russia. He deserves much credit for taking the pictures and for translating my lectures during the four seminars I conducted at the festival. I owe him a debt of gratitude! “Spaceba bolshoye” [”many thanks”] to Bhakta Ilya! :-)
