Govardhan Service Invitation
 by Prabhu Mathuranath

Dear Respected Godbrothers/Godsisters & Friends,

Please accept my dandavat pranam,

With reverence and humble obeisances to His Divine Grace Srila Bhakti Sundar Govinda Dev-Goswami Maharaj, we would like to respectfully remind the devotees of the fifth annual Govardhan Food Relief / Mass Prasadam Distribution Program. By the Grace of Srila Gurudeva this service program offers us a unique opportunity to engage in transcendental service in the Holy Dham under the shelter of Sri Gurudeva during this coming Kartik month. Kartik Vrata (Oct.-Nov.) Is Srimati Radharani's special month, and Sri Govardhan Puja Tithi is manifest there in Her Divine Service Area.

Happily, the yearly prasadam distribution has grown from approximately 7,000 in previous years to over 11,000 plates distributed last year. The preparations were first offered in large containers to Sri Giridharijiu in our Temple, then taken to the distribution tent at a site near Sri Govinda Kunda of Mathura Mandal. The Brajabasis told the devotees that Giriraj was smiling to see the distribution as 11,500 plates of prasadam were freely distributed to pilgrims circumambulating Sri Govarddhan Hill on the most auspicious day of Sri Govarddhan-puja. Srila Govinda Maharaj was very pleased to receive this news, and expressed his wish that this annual Prasad distribution programme may continue "eternally."


We hope that many more devotees from our international community will feel inspired to participate as our goal is to double the amount of plates distributed last year. With the blessings and donations of the affectionate devotees we pray that this prayer will be fulfilled.
