November 5th

  • Invitation to Sri Vyasa-Puja celebrations for His Divine Grace Om Visnupad Sri Srila Bhakti Sundar Govinda Dev-Goswami Maharaj, 9th to 13th December 2003.
  • Sri Vyasa-Puja Book: A special request to please send any written offerings early (preferably as text in the body of an email) to so they may be included and printed in the anthology being prepared again this year by Vrindavanesvari Devi Dasi. This will be presented to His Divine Grace on his holy Appearance Day. Srila Gurudev likes photos, so please contribute too with a picture or two of your good-self (as 'jpeg' files, not more than 80K each please).
  • Tips for sending photos by email. As many of you know, our phone lines are often slow in Nabadwip, so please send reasonably small photos. As a general guideline, use a picture editing programme on your computer to make each photo a maximum of 500 pixels wide, then "Save As..." a jpeg file with a quality of 50 percent. This will generally give a reasonable compromise between picture quality and file size.
    If you are sending pictures of events locally, it is helpful to send them already prepared in a web-page ready for posting on our site and/or on Srila Gurudev's computer. If you haven't made web-pages before, then try saving one of our picture pages to your hard-drive, then simply use that to substitute in your own pictures, captions and headers. Still, if you are unable to send web-pages, please do continue to send photos. Srila Gurudev is the number one fan of pictures, and your news via pictures is a substantial source of His Divine Grace's satisfaction.
