The Krishna Castle
By Parasurama das
London is not the oldest city but certainly it is one of the most important cities in the world.
The *Romans* founded London about 50 AD. Its name is derived from the Celtic word Londinios, which means the place of the bold one.
So today we will attempt to be bold for Krishna. Over the last two weeks so may volunteers came together to build the Krishna Castle in the heart of London’s Holborn.
One of the main builders was “Bhima the Giant” (over seven foot seven tall, a famous movie actor) and nothing short of a castle would be good enough, for him and the Pancha Tattva Deities.
This castle is located in the heart of the student area, so we plan to distribute 2,500 free healthy meals daily to the student community, by having 4 cargo rickshaws full of Prasad going to SOAS, UCL, LSE and Kings University. Along with the Prasad, we are building a mobile preaching exhibition, with books, weekly Harinam, festivals and programs.
Other jivas supported include the homeless and poor school children (25% of children from lower income families go to school hungry.)
We plan to be up and running in two weeks time. We are short of funds for the equiptment which we have ordered from Turkey, not possible to buy big cookers in the UK. This is the 11th hour for us, so please kindly get involved and support us as best you can.
