Food for Life in Haiti

Jai Prabhu, am so proud that the devotees are going to the most required areas.
Regarding the vacinations, there is a support from Srimad Bhagavatam in that regard.

The Unknown History of Big Book Distribution.

Great, this is filling in the gaps of our history. Can anyone pinpoint the time when “full devotional garb” gave way to western dress for book distribution. I know in England it was June 1974. A meeting was held that everyone should wear wigs and western dress for street distribution. It was an emergency situation to save the Manor but after the Manor was secure, the western clothes were not given up but became the standard.
Of course plain clothes were used by Satsvarup Maharaj’s lib party to meet the professors and teachers but that didn’t entail wearing them everyday except Sunday. By 1977 devotees in disguise become the norm. I mean look at the bbt results for 1976 1,007000 Big Books, 7 million BTG’s etc ( See Room Conversation Jan 16 1977).

This of course had the downside that it was easy for devotees to slip into small maya in their “karmi clothes”. Wearing the full dress you were told how to act by the robes. I believe that IsKcon is strong enough to have it’s brahmachari’s free from such temptation’s, and return to the days of Mahatma, Suresh, Praghosa (ACBSP) and let the householders wear the western attire for quantity book results and the brahmachari’s can have the wonderful pastimes that the early devotees had pre-1974 and so enliven us all, by wearing full Vaisnava dress, tilak, saffron robes 24 hours 7 days a week.

And the results, in the beginning there may be some shortfall but in the long term, a return to seeing devotees on our streets again, even people in their cars and on the bus will go home at night and maybe say “I saw a Hare Krishna to-day, I think their back”

Some Confusion Regarding Fasting

What about in N.Europe in the summer when the sun can set very late in the evening. Should the bhakta fast untill that Western sunset or as I have been told once “you can follow the time of India’s sunset”. India being close to the equator doesn’t vary much. I think this is maybe why Srila Prabhupada introduced the 4.p.m. ararti and 9.p.m ararti and 7.a.m. ararti (which were not offered during the time of Srila Bhaktisiddanta Saraswati Thakur) to co-incide with the West’s huge difference with the rising and setting of the sun.
