What A Week!

Gita Nagari hosted 60 health and wellness retreatants last weekend.  They were really nice people and they could not get enough of our ahimsa milk.  Each morning and evening they were lined up by the kitchen to receive hot milk for their children and themselves.  We were delighted to introduce them to the ISKCON standard of Prasad.  Mother Yasoda, Harichakra Pr, and Priya Manjari Pr. impressed everyone with their signature feast.

Just as they were leaving, we greeted 120 devotees from the Shri Shri Gaura Nitai Mandir in Brooklyn, New York.  They participated in a Go Puja with our famous oxen, Hari.  After loud and enthusiastic kirtan, they toured the farm, feasted on delicious Prasad prepared by Ananda Vilas Prabhu and his family, and joined us for the Sunday Feast Lecture. After a few questions about Gita Nagari, they joyously requested more kirtan. Yasodev Prabhu led a raucous expression of love for Sri Sri Radha Damodar with help from Jagannatha Pandit, Pandu, Harichakra, Mother Yasoda Krishna Kumar, Sachi Priya, Devaki, Jana, Kishori Mani and Nandisvara Prabhus. In the gift store, Jhulan yatra dd wondered if the sky was falling.  Sadly, their bus left at 5 pm sharp with our guests still chanting and dancing.


Still Praying for Rain
Spots of rain and a few days of humidity have been scattered here and there to help keep the farm stable through this dry spell. Still we ask for your prayers to Sri Sri Radha Damodar that they will bless us with life-sustaining rain (except during the outdoors Jhulan Yatra Festival!). 

We are making progress towards our $2000 goal for hay purchasing to keep the cows nicely fed during the dry times. If you are inspired to feed them please follow the link below to help out.
