By Lalita Madhava devi dasi
Mature, liberal-minded Vaishnavas are needed to help open (or contribute funds toward opening) a center in gorgeous, progressive and highly-intellectual Brattleboro, Vermont. Brattleboro is a beautiful and amazing town on the Connecticut River in southern Vermont just north of the Massachusetts border. Down-to-earth yet ultra-sophisticated, it has a huge alternative community of vegetarians, spiritualists and natural healers who practice, of all places, at the local hospital! Just to give an idea of how ready for and receptive to Krishna consciousness this town is, one of the featured events on January 2008’s “First Friday Gallery Walk” downtown was a presentation of vintage 1920’s and 1930’s Krishna Calendar Art by a gallery specializing in Indian art and antiques! Spectacularly beautiful throughout all the four seasons (and especially so in autumn), even the winters here in southern Vermont are mystical and enchanting, with the dazzling, sparkling snow!
We have abundant energy and enthusiasm for preaching, harinama (our family is practically a kirtana party unto ourselves!), book distribution and prasadam distribution, but feel that we really need Vaishnava association and help in starting up a grass-roots preaching program. Senior devotees who have now reached retirement age and are looking for a project, young couples, single people with missionary zeal and little overhead, ecstatic kirtaniyas - please visit us in wonderful Brattleboro (Brattleboro is centrally located equidistant from all of the New England airports - Boston, Manchester NH, Hartford/Springfield CT, and Albany NY) and give this town serious consideration as an incredible place to serve Srila Prabhupada by spreading the Holy Names in every town and village! Begging your help in Lord Caitanya’s mission, we remain
