Historic 45th Anniversary Celebration of founding New Panihati Dham, Atlanta Iskcon

2015 is an historic year for all of Iskcon because it marks the 50th anniversary of Srila Prabhupada leaving India to begin his mission in America. 2015 is also a very important year for Iskcon of Atlanta for two reasons. First it is the 45th anniversary of the establishment of Iskcon of Atlanta and second it is the 40th anniversary of Srila Prabhupada's visit to the Atlanta temple. During his visit he performed the Vyasa puja ceremony to his own guru, Srila Bhaktissidanta Sarasvati Thakur.

On Sunday February 8th we will be celebrating all three of these events with a special program that will surely inspire our entire congregation.

The festival schedule:

3:45pm - Tulasi puja
4:00pm - The history of the Atlanta temple presented by the first president of Iskcon of Atlanta, His Grace Janmejaya Prabhu 
4:40pm - Description of Srila Prabhupada's historic visit to New Panihati Dham presented by His Grace Balavanta Prabhu, who was president when Srila Prabhupada visited here.
5:15pm - Vyasa puja for Srila Bhaktissidanta Sarasvati Thakur Maharaj
5:30pm - Maha Arati
5:55pm - Announcements 
6:00pm - Prasadam

Hare Krsna dear matajis and prabhus,

I have to share some sad but glorious news with you. My dear god brother and musical partner (Murari Band) for more than 35 years, Hasyagrami prabhu, left his body in Mayapur yesterday. He is a disciple of Srila Prabhupada having joined Iskcon in 1971.

He and his wife Naradi were riding a motorcycle inside the Mayapur compound and, according to Naradi, he may have suffered a heart attack while operating the bike. Naradi only suffered a few minor brusies but Hasyagrami prabhu passed away in just a few minutes after the accident, with Naradi chanting the Holy Names during his last moments. Please pray that he attains the Lotus Feet of The Lord in the eternal abode and that he continue his service to Srila Prabhupada.

  

His Grace Hasyagrami Das
