The UK Festival of Devotion Tour

July 2nd - 12th, 2004
With Sripad Bhaktivedanta Aranya Maharaja and Sripad BV Bhaktisar Maharaja

Dear Maharajas, Prabhus and Didis,

Please accept our dandavat pranam.
Sri Sri Guru-Gauranga Jayatah!

We are so very pleased to announce the The Festival of Devotion Tour of Sripad Bhaktivedanta Aranya Maharaja & Sripad Bhaktivedanta Bhaktisar Maharaja here in the UK! They will be visiting many places throughout England and our hope is that this will enable you to take advantage of the purifying association of Srila Gurudeva’s nearest and dearest. Please take a few moments to look over the schedule detailed below and mark your calendar for when you will get your hari-katha. Both are here for only 10 days! Please take full advantage of this golden opportunity. Invite everyone you know.

NOTE that we need to collect to reimburse their airfares. As of yet we do not know the total amount which is our portion of their tickets but as soon as we do we will inform the group and the hosts. Therefore, each host is requested to collect this minimum amount for the total number of days programs are held at their location. This is separate from any donations devotees will make to Sripad Aranya Maharaja & Sripad Bhaktisar Maharaja personally or for Prasadam.

Please let the hosts, of the programmes you will be attending, know when you will be coming. This allows us to prepare in advance for you.

Should you have any questions please feel free to contact us.

See you there!
Sadhu Sanga Ki Jaya!
