on Nrsimhadeva's
Appearance Day!
(Friday 8 May 2009)


During this Gaura Purnima, we asked several devotees to write about their Boat Harinama and Food for Life experience in Mayapur. Here is one letter we received, we humbly request more devotees to write! Suggestions for improvements are also welcome!


Dear Shastra Prabhu

Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada!

I am glad you asked me to write something for your weblog,
in fact I had wanted to write something anyway! I have been to
Mayapur three times, and never have I had such a wonderful
experience there!

The chanting in the boat and all the way
was just so powerful – perhaps because it was in the Holy
Dhama, but I’m sure it was also because of the great enthusiasm
of the Harinama team you have. It is really nice that you
use a sound system with big speakers, with quality sound
(not the distorted rumble we often hear from public speakers
in India)……this is so important as the Holy Name pervades
the whole atmosphere and program.

Then of course the children in the village were sooo sweet,
and it was really heart-rendering to see how eager some people
are there just to get a plate of kichari, how they fight for it.
In fact I was shedding tears. Coming from a country
and background where I hardly ever see such type of hunger (USA),
it was a really soul-stirring experience. I think I can
understand a little of how Srila Prabhupada felt when
he saw the children fighting with the dogs for scraps
of food in Mayapur.

Thank you very much for inviting us on your program,
we wish you all the best with the great service you are doing
and we pledge our continuous support.

Your servant
