Nityananda, Gauranga, Hare Krishna!
All glories to Shrila Bhaktivinoda! All glories to Shrila Bhaktisiddhanta Thakura! All glories to Shrila Prabhupada! All glories to our beloved Swamiji Gaurangapada! My humble obeisances to all the Vaishnavas!
Another beautiful program at a local temple in Bangalore. 50-60 people attended. Had a long kirtana and long slideshow lecture in English translated into Kannada. Around twenty new devotees took Ashraya Diksha and agreed to start chanting Nityananda, Gauranga and Hare Krishna daily. Many others will also start chanting daily. The 50 malas we had taken were all distributed and some people were disappointed that they could not take Ashraya Diksha as the malas fell short. They will come and accept the malas personally in the next few days.
Thank You very much for sharing this information with us. It is with great joy I read that these people are picking up a mala and start chanting the Holy Names. I'll humbly pray for them in the hope they understand how lucky we all are, being able to chant the Holy Names under Your guidance. Jaya Swamiji Gaurangapada! :ty:
Your eternal servant in the service of the Holy Names of Nityananda, Gauranga and Hare Krishna.
