Hare Krsna to all
All glories to Srila Prabhupada

Yesterday, Sunday July 13th, 2014 at the Krsna Balarama Mandir, maintained by Navadvipa and his family of 5, saw Yasoda Nandana Prabhu, a senior disciple of Srila Prabhupada officiate on behalf of Srila Prabhupada and perform a fire yajna for the second or brahmana initiation of Ramchandra das, Laxman das and Radha devi dasi, the three children of Navadvipa and Vrajabhumi prabhus.

It was hot, both outside and inside, ecstatic and wonderful all at the same time. Yasoda nandan prabhu traveling all the way from LA Calif, and others from Alachua Florida, and others from parts of Washington, as well as local devotees in Canada, all participated by throwing grains into the sacrificial fire, each grain equal in benefit to thousands of ashvamedha sacrifices, all for the pleasure of Lord Vishnu who presided in many forms, especially in the–Fire !

The kirtan at the end went wild, while the matajis prepared for distribution of a feast that was seemingly without end in numbers of preparations. Everything went nicely, the Krsna prasad was super delicious,
the association divine, and as everybody departed, I think we all felt a little bit closer to Lord Krsna and Lord Balaram , what to speak of Srila Prabhupada, without whom, none of this would have been possible.

Hare Krsna
