THE FESTIVAL OF KRISHNA BALARAM IN NEW MAYAPUR IS FAST APPROACHING
Dear Maharajas and Prabhus,
Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada.
It’s not too late to make plans to come to the HISTORICAL FESTIVAL of the 30th anniversary of the installation of Krishna Balaram in France
In New Mayapur, we just hosted a group of 150 Pandava Senas from UK for a week; the walls of the castle and the forests around are still saturated with the sound of the maha-mantra ; all the visitors who came marveled at the gorgeous deities we have here, very special indeed. There will be lots of Prabhupada’s disciples during that festival, lots of nectar, and you might have some sleepless night, for you will not want to miss out of the ecstasy of the kirtan and Krishna katha flowing there.
Invite other devotees and friends, load up your can or van and just get on the road. I advise you to bring your camping tents and gear. As far as the accomodations go, the guesthouse is already full, sorry. Besides the camping on the property, the organisers will have a huge tent for the men, and there are always the local hotels in the village next to New Mayapur. We could give you the fares for those, roughly 30 Euros a night (a taxi service will be organised and many devotees live in that village, no anxiety for transportation).
I’m giving you again the practical info for hotels and taxi service. Please do not hesitate to contact me, I’m at your service, but please hurry up, and inform us of your arrival. We need to know how many people are coming.
Your servant, Gaurangi dd
