After returning from my break, we went to Melbourne to celebrate the biggest festival of the year in the Hare Krishna movement, Sri Krishna Janmastami, the birthday of Lord Krishna. The event was attended by around 6,000 guests. My service was to bring the offerings cooked in the kitchen to the altar to offer to Lord Krishna for His pleasure. More than 200 items were offered throughout the day. We also danced and chanted in the Temple for over an hour.
On Sunday we returned to Hare Krishna Valley to organise our Sunday Feast programme, which attracted around 50 guests. Everybody enjoyed the programme of chanting, dancing and feasting.
We look forward to speaking to you again next week.
Until then, I remain yours in the service of Srila Prabhupada.
