Bhaktivedanta Manor: Last weekend saw a record number of visitors to Bhaktivedanta Manor during Janmastami. With over 70,000 people over the two days, “it is as if Krishna had wanted everyone to come and celebrate his appearance” said Ajay Kumar, one of the organisers of the festival.

Pilgrims and guests enjoyed the sunshine and the music, dance, plays, exhibitions and of course tons of free prasad.

All the guests passed through the new Goshalla at a cost of 2.4 million pounds. Sita Rama Das said “this year we are asking people to think about how their food is produced. Millions of cows are killed after an average of
300 days of milking on a commercial farm. Our “happy cows” go on giving milking for seven or eight years. This is because we have such a high level of care for our cows”. The tradition of worshipping Krishna is synonymous with protecting cows. We hope that this will be a blue print for all farms said Shyamasundar Das the farm manager.

The organizers said that all the preparations over many months and the commitment and devotion of 1,500 volunteers has made the festival successful.

Many dignitaries attended the festival., including MPs, Mayors, interfaith representatives and business leaders.

“Bhaktivedanta Manor is now a major centre for education and worship,” said Clare Ward, MP for Watford. “Congratulations for the hard work, perseverance and dedication displayed at this festival which attracts not only people from across the country. The qualities exhibited are the same qualities that enabled the Manor to remain open during a difficult period. This festival keeps on getting bigger and better!”
