Once again the Sankirttan party is going out for spreading the glories of Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Math to the villages of West Bengal.
Nabadwip: Around midday, the team packs our Tata Sumo with belongings and all the paraphernalia for a moving ashram.
By 2 p.m. everything is ready and were out on the road, passing so many rice fields and villages along the way.
At 6 p.m. we reach our destination where we are welcomed by smiling Vaishnavas, but almost immediately it is time for Gaura-Arati.
The evening offering is being prepared.
6.30 p.m. just like we are used to in the Temple, Tulasi Parikrama...
...then vandana and kirttans.
Sripad Acharyya Maharaj then gives a talk in praise of Srila Gurudev and the Mission of Sriman Mahaprabhu.
Day Two. Early morning, after mangal arati in the house we stayed, interested neighbours joined in our morning programme.
Prasad distribution, for everyones satisfaction.
Our duty: house to house rice collection for Sri Gaura-Purnima.
The village people are very happy to see us...
...and often offer us a seat and sweets.
