Festival Update - urgent!
Dear Devotees, dandavat pranams, all glories to Sri Guru and Sri Gauranga!
In about two weeks time Srila Gurudeva will be coming to Germany! The feedback we have been receiving from India is that Srila Gurudevas health is improving day by day and that we expect him to be back to good health by the time he arrives for the festival.
Our calculations for the festival costs were based on a minimum participation of 400-500 devotees. We are still far away in achieving this number. As a result to cover fixed costs we are obliged to raise the festival fees by 5% for all participating devotees. This means that as an example if you have been paying 180 Euros you will have to pay now 9 Euros more, all together 189 Euros. We hope that everyone understands this. We have been trying to do things as efficiently as possible, so that a high festival fee will not stop devotees from coming, nevertheless fixed costs are there which have to be met by all.
We are hoping for everyone's cooperation, please contact me if you have any inquiries at .
Yours in the service of Srila Prabhupada and Srila Gurudeva, Harernamananda das
