All glories to Sri Sri Guru Gauranga!
Dear Devotees and Friends,
We would like to share with you some of the recent preaching programmes that took place in Italy. We were invited by a new disciple of Srila Avadhut Maharaj, Kalindi Devi Dasi, as well as by Dayal Krishna Prabhu, the leader of our beautiful family in Liguria, to participate in an event at the University of Imperia on the theme: 'The Mystery of the Universe'.



For four days different individuals were invited to speak. In particular, Vishakha Devi Dasi spoke beautifully about the 'Religion of the Heart'. Every evening we would also chant the mahamantra and speak informally to the fortunate assembly.



For the occasion, by the kindness of Srila Avadhut Maharaj and the essential help of Ramachandra Prabhu, we had the opportunity to show the people the Full Dome, with content about the creation. It included a special sound-track that we made especially to preach the conception of the Vedas about the creation and the evolution of consciousness as taught to us by Srila Guru Maharaj and Srila Gurudev. Everyone that saw that movie was astonished and really impressed, not only by the powerful visual effect, but also by the concepts expressed.



After the movie almost everyone was desirous to know more about the philosophy and purchase one or more books at our table: the Bhagavad-gita, or Search for Sri Krishna, or Home Comfort, and others. All the devotees of that area were engaged in preaching.
Prasadam was also prepared and offered to the guests, so naturally many cook books were sold!
After the programme many people came to us and from deep within their hearts thanked us for the words that were spoken, and commented about how they felt illuminated by the message they received. Everyone was very enlivened by this programme, both guests and devotees, and I feel that Srila Gurudev must be very happy.



It is my prayer and hope that Srila Acharyadev, Srila Avadhut Maharaj, and all the beautiful Acharyas of our Mission will be happy and pleased to hear this news, and that this kind of programme will continue in Italy more and more.
Praying that there are not offences in our attempt to please Sri Hari-Guru-Vaishnav, and that any offence that we might have unwillingly committed may be forgiven, we offer our humble dandavat pranams to Srila Gurudev, to Srila Acharyadev, and all the Acharyas of Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Math, as well as to all the devotees serving under their affectionate guidance.
Humbly, Krishna Kanta Devi Dasi, Munindra Mohan Das, and all the Italian devotees.
