Balabadra Bhattacharya das: 40 Years of Service in Atlanta

This is a slideshow of a presentation we did to honor Balabadra Bhattacarya das (acbsp) of Atlanta. This is his 40th consecutive year of service to ISKCON Atlanta.

Balabadra was born in Atlanta, became a devotee in Atlanta, and has never served in any other temple since. He was an airport book distributor back in the day, temple vice president for 5 years, and temple president for 20 years! He continue to serve despite being replaced. He is always present at temple functions, he has a weekly gita class, and unlimited harinams. I have left out a lot of other service and accomplishments.

We have placed a plaque in our temple room commemorating his achievement in service to Srila Prabhupada. I’ll post a photo of the plaque soon.

I’m sure Srila Prabhuapda is pleased with his dedication to ISKCON Atlanta.

Here is the five minute slideshow…

    Dear devotees

    I have had the good fortune of meeting Balabhadra Bhattacharya Prabhu in the Philadelphia Temple last fall and I am very happy to report that I was immediately charmed by his soft and humble, very respectful and considerate personality, as well as by his perfect paca Vaishnava behavior and appearance…

    In order to taste more of the trancendental glamour of the spiritual personality our dear Balabhadra Bhattacharya Prabhu, I invite devotees to watch the following videos, where he recalls some of his memeories in relation to Srila Prabhupada and the Atlanta Temple and Georgia yatra:

    You will also find more nectar on “youtube”, under the name of Balabhadra Bhattacharya das

    It is a blessing for us all that Srila Prabhupada gathered some of his eternal entourage around him, so that we may be blessed with the opportunity to relish such association…

    Gratefully
