August 24 @ 4:00 pm - 8:00 pm
On this superimportant day, please come and join us in expressing our love and gratitude toward Srila Prabhupada for his unlimited spiritual gifts. September 4th marks Srila Prabhupada’s Vyasa-puja/Appearance Day celebration. At the age of 69, he mercifully and courageously traveled from India to New York aboard a rugged cargo ship, weathering rough seas and two heart attacks, intent on delivering us all from the sufferings of material life by teaching us Krishna Consciousness. During this most important and sweetest festival of the year, everyone will be given an opportunity to speak before the assembled devotees and express their gratitude to Srila Prabhupada for the unprecedented kindness and compassion he causelessly showered upon us all.
