Hare Krsna to all
All glories to Srila Prabhupada
We had a very nice Janmastami/vyasa puja festival here at Sri Sri Gaura  Nitai Mandir on Aug 11, in Sedro Woolley, Wash.
Because the actual event took place on thru/fri, and most of our  congregational members have to work and come from long distances we held a  combined event on saturday.
Many came, all had a great time, and were fed sumptuous Krsna prasadam  before they happily left.
We began the program with an Arotik for Srila Prabhupada followed by  pushpa puja, then heartfelt offerings by the devotees and lots of realizations  how Srila Prabhupada has totally transformed their lives.
Then we did Lord Krsna Arotik , followed by a short class, then a play,  then Abhisek, then opening of some presents, then everyone letting loose  with the chinese party poppers, and ending up with the huge feast comprised of  what seemed endless amounts of wonderful mercy from the Supreme Lord. Now we  have the ” problem” of how to “honor”  many sweets which were left  over.
For those who came and participated, thank you for coming, helping out,  thankyou for your donations, and for those who didn’t come-we hope to see  some of you next year.
All glories to Srila Prabhupada
your humble servants
