Preaching Programmes

14-17 February 2015

 

A few days after the village preaching, His Divine Grace Srila B.N. Acharya Maharaj sets on another four-day preaching trip to nourish the devotees, invite everyone to join the oncoming Sri Nabadwip Dham parikrama, and to collect some bhog for the festival. Below are photographs capturing the main activities of His Divine Grace and his preaching party during the trip.

In the meantime, the preparations in Sri Nabadwip Dham are at full swing: wood, bhog, pandals
on the roofs and Govinda Kunda are being prepared for the festival that is likely to attract
the highest number of pilgrims as of yet.

 

 

Service to the Lord is based on faithful following of one's Guru and the Vaishnavs.
