Akrura Das: Hare Krishna Maharaj/Prabhus/Matajis,
Please accept my most humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada.

I am writing this to you as we count down 365 days to the “Winter Olympics” in Vancouver.
This is a big International Event that the ‘City of Vancouver’ is hosting. We are very proud that the whole world will be looking at Vancouver. As tiny little instruments in the mission of Srila Prabhupad, we want to take full advantage of all this global attention. The first phase of close to 2 Million available tickets sold out within hours.

The ‘Official” facts about the numbers (of conditioned souls) expected and dates are below.

I want to request you to please pass this along your local devotees, Folks, your Sankirtan devotees, Travelling Sankirtan parties etc. Please encourage them to get in touch with us and let us know if and how they are willing to participate.

Aspiring to be Your servant in service to Srila Prabhupad
