Hare Krishna All,

Jaya Srila Prabhupada ! Jaya Krishna Balarama !

Finally our Gita Marathon got over with wonderful memories and realizations . We have started our Gita Marathon Book Distribution and  Oct 2nd week and got ended on Dec 29th 2013.  Our devotees went out for book distribution on every Saturday for couple of hours. 

We have offered our Sanirtan Scores for the pleasure of Srila Prabhupada and Their Lordships on the auspicious day of  Dvadashi ( Right after Vaikunta Ekadasi).

Although we had a small team but Srila Prabhupada had empowered all of us to distribute his divine teachings across bay area, and hundreds of people got connected with Srila Prabhupada. 

 We have surpassed our Book Goal and Laxmi Goal , Infact Lamxi collection was tripled , and Books Score was almost doubled.  I am sure Srila Prabhupada was very much pleased with our humble attempt.

I would like to share with you the Sankirtan Results -

I would like to thank all Sankirtan Devotees and Book Sponsors from the bottom of my heart , without you  it would not have been possible .

Lets get ready for 2014 Monthly Sankirtan.

Srila Prabhupada Letter to Balavanta, 23rd November 1976  :

Srila Prabhupada Letter to Balavanta

“I am very glad to hear how the book distribution is increasing more and more. This is our greatest weapon. The more the books are distributed, the more the ignorance of the age of Kali will be smashed. The world is feeling the weight of this Hare Krsna movement, especially in your country. We have to increase this book distribution work more and more to firmly establish this movement, which is the only hope for the suffering living entities.”

Param Vijayate Sri Krishna Sankirtanam !
