Kumbha Mela 2019 Prasadam Sponsorship Opportunity

Saturday, 02 February 2019 / Published in Message Board / 570 views

Hare Krishna,

Please accept our greetings.

Kumbha Mela is one of the most fascinating displays of faith in the Indian history in which millions of pilgrims from all across India come to take their sacred bath. Srila Prabhupada along with his disciples attended the Ardha Kumbha Mela in 1971 and then the Purna Kumbha Mela in 1977 in Prayaga, Allahabad.

To know about what is Kumbha Mela, please watch (English Video) (Hindi Video)

This year in Allahabad, 15 crore people are expected to attend the Ardha Kumbha at Prayaga, Allahabad from 15 Jan – 4 March. In order to serve the pilgrims at Prayaga, ISKCON like in every Kumbha mela has set up a pandal and is serving full meal prasadam to them.

Interested devotees are requested to come forward and sponsor prasadam especially on the Shahi snana dates or Royal bathing dates which falls on Mauni Amavasya i.e. 4th February and Basant Panchami, i.e. 10th February. The donation amount required to sponsor entire prasadam on each of the Shahi snana dates comes to Rs 2 lakhs or USD 2800.

Charity given out of duty, without expectation of return, at the proper time and place, and to a worthy person is considered to be in the mode of goodness. (Bhagavad Gita 17.20)

“Simply by liberal distribution of prasāda and saṅkīrtana, the whole world can become peaceful and prosperous.” (Srimad Bhagavatam 4.2.10 purport)
