First Bhakti Vrksa Convention for Leaders

Moving to the Future with Bhakti Vrksa !  

August 18th and 19th of 2012 in Sri Mayapur Dham, India.

It has been a learning curve, but after the idea was introduced 15 years ago we can safely say: Bhakti-vriksha works!

As you know, H.H. Jayapataka Swami predicted the importance and the potential of Bhakti Vrsksa. Since you made it a reality, now he is calling you again to plan the second phase of the future for this successful program.

The convention focuses on learning from the past, identifying and working on how to overcome the obstacles and projecting and planning into an ever greater future.

 Use this convention as a powerful, inspirational tool for your team members and return to your area with a new and fresh vision of Bhakti Vrksa.

 You cannot miss it! Be part of the planning of the Future of the Bhakti Vrksa system!!!

Vamanadeva Approach to Congregation Expansion

Hare Krishna! Here's a wonderful story to inspire us to help spread Lord Caitanya's movement: 

Chilean devotees inspire 300 prisoners!!

Twenty eight devotees from the Santiago Yatra along with 250 books of Srila Prabhupada, made their way to one of the most famous prisons in Chile called "Santiago 1".

There, they faced an endless ocean of grim, impenetrable seriousness and an attitude of distrust which reeked from the defendants, many who had been charged with serious crimes. A brief talk and explanation of the Maha-mantra helped break the ice and the devotees began to sing. Several minutes later, the inmates joined in and began dancing joyfully. All glories to the Sankirtan movement!

Please bless the Chilean devotees to continue in their wonderful service to Srila Prabhupada and expand their prison preaching.

Thank you all for your wonderful comments and encouragement! 

Radha Kesava Prabhu I did not understand your question? Exactly what is your question in response to?

Comment by Jaya Dayini on March 22, 2012 at 8:52am

Hare Krsna, prabhus! Guru Maharaja ki jai!

Nice idea - all glories to your service! Remember me when you're thinking about publishing anything new or republishing any older books or magazines as I'd love to do some service by editing things - as some of you know, that's what I do! :))))

To all our Godbrothers, Please give us your heartfelt blessings so we can grow healthy and steady in BV groups here in Barcelona, Spain. GM is constantly giving blessings for Congregational development, and is also true that GM is always showing the importance of humbly requesting all blessings of everyone for doing service. I am addressing to all of you. The holy dust of Guru Maharaja lotus feet! Please bless us, give us siksa, inspiration and good will. YHS Nimai Pandita Raja dasa.
