Dear GBC Members,

Please accept my obeisnace’s. All glories to Srila Prabhupada! Hare Krsna, today on the day of Srila Prabhupada’s disappearance, are happy to announce the successful completion of the first Iraq Ratha Yatra. Originally the Ratha Yatra was scheduled for January, but due to my moving to a different part of Iraq, we arranged for all preparations to be completed with in two days. After some unexpected issues came to light form the authorities, everything was set to go. From the first light, people were waiting for the Lord’s dharshan. At around 12 noon the Lord made His appearance, much to the pleasure of all assembled. The turn out was not as big as we have hoped, but considering the circumstances, I believe it was a success. About 50 - 75 souls, hungry and eager for the Lord’s mercy chanted and danced. A simple feast of dahl and rice and HG Ratna Bhusana Prabhu’s famous cookies filled all’s stomach. While the procession was not a long distance and everything was very simple, I feel the efforts of all involved and all those that attended were the true offering. Many came away from this Ratha Yatra will a deeper understanding of spiritual life and for a moment, Iraq was transformed into Vaikunta. I will be posting photo’s in the next few days, when I am settled into my new area of preaching.

Yours in the service of Sri Guru & Gauranga Partha-sarathi dasa

Hare Krishna!
Your bravery and kindness in organizing the Lord’s yatra is greatly appreciated. Recently, this was the topic of conversation in our circle of devotees and non-devotees and everyone was staggering in happiness afterwards.
This is certainly a transcendental adventure!
