4th July Parade and Festivals-Sedro Woolley Wash 2014

July 8, 2014 in Articles, Damaghosa Dasa by Nityananda Rama dasa

Hare Krsna to all
Pranams
All glories to Srila Prabhupada

Its now history.
If you were invited and didn’t or couldn’t come, you missed out on something special.The Hare Krsna devotees have now, for the second year in a row, merrily danced down the main streets of this small town called Sedro Woolley in Wash, and were happily watched by thousands of bystanders. We distributed over 2000 bags of Organic raisin prasadam (with mantra and temple info attached) and many of Prabhupada’s books as well.
Afterwards we re-grouped here at our farm ashram, this time,for eating the prasadam ourselves, and just relaxing in the soothing and beautiful atmosphere of Govindas Gardens, and devotee association.
After a couple hours of this we all decided to go inside to the temple room for one last kirtan-and this went wild as everybody was dancing in ecstasy.
Today, July 5th, we had another program here, more ecstasy,wonderful kirtans and great class, tasty organic garden prasadam and tomorrow we will have another one again at Kanhaiyas Sila Puri Ashram.
This is spiritual life-every day, every minute, no Maya–let us all try to get into that eternal consciousness. One way this begins or a good way to continue this, is to have these festivals from time to time.

For your viewing pleasure we have included some photos and video of the parade and events afterwards.

Hare Krsna-hope to see even more devotees next year !!
