Balabadra Bhattacharya das: 40 Years of Service in Atlanta
By Sikhi Mahiti das
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.
