This summer the London Math devotees are getting ready for many preaching opportunities at festivals all over the UK.
Twice daily Krishna Kishor Prabhu cooked the bhoga offerings, which were later distributed as prasadam to the many enthusiastic guests.
Mornings were always started with bhajans, and a reading by the two sannyasis present.
We had a board of pictures and quotes, illustrating the glories of our mission worldwide.

Above: One day a film crew came to interview Sripad Nyasi Maharaj who gave a brief introduction to Krishna Consciousness. They also filmed bhoga arati with the devotees chanting the Holy Names.

Left: Our book table. We distributed a lot of booklets by Srila Govinda Maharaj and Srila Sridhar Maharaj, which were all much appreciated by the visitors.

Every evening, after Gaura Arati, Sripad Bhakti Vigraha Nyasi Maharaj would give a Bhagavad Gita class on "Spirit and Matter," which would often lead to interesting discussions.
Lalita Madhava Prabhu preaches to a person who, like many others, would repeatedly return to hear from the devotees and chant the Holy Names of the Lord with them.
Sripad B.S. Tridandi Swami and Madhu Mati Didi (of Venezuela) serve out Prasadam.
We had a lot of regulars coming back to honour prasadam.

During the cold and windy weather, a hot plate of khichri and subji with salad and sweets was greatly welcomed.

Most of the people that came to the festival were young and searching for spiritual meaning in their lives. Many worshiped different demigods and goddesses, but our devotees tried to inspire them to take to the most glorious and direct path of Bhakti Yoga, as taught in the Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Math.

Despite loud music playing all night, Sripad Tridandi Maharaj would make a fire, lead beautiful bhajans, and read from the books of our divine guardians.
Over ten devotees joined to make this festival a big success by their wonderful service mood, their enthusiasm, and by distributing the merciful teachings of our beloved Srila Gurudev.
