Title: SMS Preaching begins

User: Swami Gaurangapada Date: 2006-06-01 14:45:50

 

Nityananda! Gauranga! Hare Krishna! I have started on a small level SMS  Preaching of Nityananda Gauranga Hare Krishna Naam to devotees' mobile phones in India by sending a selected group of devotees one spiritual quote or SMS or announcement daily. I have to pay around Re.0.7 per SMS so I am not able to add all the Indian mobile numbers. I am receiving very good and inspiring feedback with the devotees receiving the spiritual SMS right in the middle of their hectic working day and they feel their whole day becomes Nityanandized or spiritualized by meditating on the deep meaning of that SMS. 90% of the devotees receiving the SMS are reading it as the mobile is an indispensible part of their day to day work and they can't afford to miss anything on their mobile. I am going to try with international mobile numbers in the next few days. The cost for one SMS abroad is almost 2 or 3 times the cost for SMSing to India. Anyway for now I will continue to do it as much as I can and maybe later start some SMS subscription so that those who want to take advantage can subscribe by paying the very small monthly fee for the actual costs involved. Please feel free to post in this thread about your interests, input and suggestions in this regard.

My dearest Swamiji,

 

Yes, it would be great to receive a spiritual SMS from You, even if it would only be sent once a week. I would definately like to sign up for this wonderful service!

 

Yours in the service of the Holy Names of Nityananda, Gauranga and Hare Krishna,
