We have just rediscoverd the Behind the Scenes Festival of India Documentary. Please watch it:
Hare Krishna Festivals seem to magically appear in parks in big North American cities overnight during Summer .
The Festival of India Documentary reveals the secrets of the dozen men who take the festival from one city to the next, then assemble the festival overnight in a park, then pull it down when it is over and take it to the next city and do it all again.
Festival of India spends Summer crisscrossing North America in a huge truck bringing millions of Americans in contact with the devotees, Srila Prabhupada and Krishna.
The film is very interesting and inspiring: Please watch it:
It may be that Festival Of India has got space for a few more enthusiastic young men this year as well. So if you are interested in joining Festival of India this year contact Madhuha Prabhu at: https://festivalofindia.org/
Madhudvisa dasa My first contact with a Hare Krishna was a most merciful Mataji in Oxford Street, London who sold me a "Higher Taste" cook book in 1984 while I was on holidays there. I started seriously reading Srila Prabhupada's books in Australia 1985 and by 1986 Srila Prabhupada had convinced me "Krishna is the Supreme Personality of Godhead" and "we should surrender to Krishna."
I joined the Hare Krishnas in Perth, Western Australia in 1986. Since then I have been chanting Hare Krishna, Hare Krishna, Krishna Krishna, Hare Hare/ Hare Rama, Hare Rama, Rama Rama, Hare Hare, reading and distributing Srila Prabhupada's books and preaching as much as I can.
That's my life and full-time occupation now really. I like it more than anything I've ever experienced before. Srila Prabhupada's books are so amazing... Even after reading them all many times they're still fresh and new. They are truly transcendental!
That's it really. Now I'm just hankering to once again see the world chant Hare Krishna, dance and feast and float away in the ecstasy of Lord Caitanya's Sankirtana movement as it did in Srila Prabhupada's physical presence. Let the whole world drown in the ecstatic flood of love of Krishna!
