The flower festival is clearly a new festival which was not introduced by any of the acharyas, and which was not suggested in sastra. Why our ISKCON devotees continue to ignore Srila Prabhupada’s main instruction about introducing speculations in deity worship?
In Vaisnava tradition, there are so many festivals, and we are not having enough man power and energy even for celebrating those festivals. But some kind of new energy is seen in this kind of new inventions. It is better to follow the festivals given by Sastra and acharyas rather than inventing this kind of festival.
Is it not an offense to step over the flowers which were offered to Krsna?
Or am I ignorant of some of the teachings of Srila Prabhupada? Can anyone give any reference from Sastra or from Srila Prabhupada to support this kind of festivals?

I request Sri Gopal prabhu and others whoever maybe reading this open letter to first hear the lecture before commenting. Bhakti Vikasa Swami makes the point clear that Prasada should be distributed widely as directed by Srila Prabhupada along with Sankirtana. There is no second thought on that. But he has raised his concerns over popularizing our movement on the grounds of welfare work.
