Sunday, September 20th we gathered to celebrate Radha's appearance.  Mother Vrajalila and Ekavira Prabhu treated us to a dynamic and moving remembrance of Srimati Radharaniin the mood of Vrindavan.  Ananda Vilas Prabhu and his family joined Haricakra Prabhu and his family in creating a feast to remember!  Ekavira Prabhu added gallons of juice to keep us dancing and chanting for the pleasure of Sri Sri Radha Damodar.  Ekavira Prabhu informed us that Srila Prabhupada authorized showing the feet of only one deity in the west, those of our dearest Sri Sri Radha Damodar.  How fortunate are we?
Community meeting 
Our dedicated devotees met for one and one half hours to discuss Gita Nagari.  We heard from everyone about security at Gita Nagari, changing our Sunday feast timing to allow the cooks to include their feast offerings at 11:30am or 5:30pm., and finished our meeting with a mystical, magical group hug.  Please join us next month for updates on these issues and more.
Have a wonderful Krishna Conscious week!

Farewell to Bhakta Ian 
You know summer is over when Bhakta Ian lights a fire in the ashram stove each morning.  After a joyous summer of service and association, Bhakta Ian returns to Jamaica next week.  We have relished his great service attitude and amazing friendship.  Thanks, Ian, for all you have done for Sri Sri Radha Damodar.
