Please Join us in prayers for Surabhi prabhu, beloved disciple of Srila Prabhupada and the devotee architect of Vrindavan and Juhu Temples. At this time, he has come to Vrindavan to leave this world, as he lost the battle with cancer. Went to see him this morning, he was unconscious and the devotees were doing kirtan. Just for the service of building two of Srila Prabhupada’s favorite temples, he is assured the highest destination!

Hare Krishna! “God”?
Ravindra Svarupa dasa: What the punctuation in the title indicates: Quotation marks: Draping the word God in quotation marks indicates that we are first concerned with the signifier, not the signified.

Aren’t there many different meanings? Isn’t the meaning often vague or ambiguous?

Warming up for the maha Sankirtana Yajna! (7 min video)
Indradyumna Swami: Two hundred thousand young people have already arrived for the Woodstock Festival, which begins in two days. Taking advantage of the big crowd we went on harinama with 250 devotees. A number of them distributed invitations to our Krsna’s Village of Peace. Many people danced with us in ecstasy, relishing the sweet nectar of Krsna’s holy names. A number of them followed us back to our village where we had more kirtan. After prasadam we had even more kirtan well into the night! Kirtan is our life and soul and an intricate part of the great Woodstock Festival.

June was a very good month for book distribution worldwide. Summer months are generally good for us book distributors. The sunny weather puts people in a relatively nicer and happier mood.

They had a 610% increase, distributed over 1,800 books, and did 2,024 book points, which makes Monterrey the No. 1 temple in all of Central and South America. Congratulations, Monterrey book distributors! Nairobi also had a good month with a 366% increase, over 1,300 books distributed, and 1,832 book points.
