Bhakta Dasa: With the tragic bush fires around Australia at the moment, the Hare Krishna devotees in Melbourne are contributing in a variety of ways. We are supporting the JET Australia Foundation ( the Ramanuja Sampradaya ) by providing funds to them to distribute bottled water to the Firefighters. We are also looking at ways Hare Krishna Food for Life can assist with Vegetarian meal distribution. There are also plans to have a joint Hindu temples and organizations Yajna where we will be performing the Hare Krishna Maha-mantra Sankirtan Yajna. At the temple tonight also there is a Bushfire Kirtan relief prayer session starting at 5.00pm. All welcome.
Kisori Dasi: As you know, Australia is going through a terrible disaster now with the loss of properties, wildlife, human lives and an ongoing threat to many of us.
The Vedic scriptures tell us that from sacrifice comes rain and as we know getting together and singing the Holy Names of the Lord -Sankirtana Yagna- is the best and the recommended sacrifice in this age of Kaliyuga.
As well as bringing rains, doing kirtan together sends powerful spiritual vibes for healing and hope where it’s needed most. As the scriptures state-chanting together is the most powerful way of attracting the Lord’s attention.
Iskcon New Govardhan will be having kirtan in the temple room from
10am to 6pm daily Mon 6th to Sat 11th Jan.
Sunday 12th January kirtan hours will be 9am to 9pm.
Please contact Kisori Dasi or Indranila Dasi for a spot on the roster.
You can sing for as long or as little as you like.
Please bring your family, friends and some musicians if possible.
