Back again--Spring 2015, but the message is the same...
The same exhibits, Srila Prabhpada's books, and fresh delicious Krishna Prasadam...
Prasadam is always attractive and worth waiting in line for, even if they might be late for class.
Above--Sankirtan Yajna Prabhu, the cook and organizer, and Sankarshan Prabhu (FOI) distributing Krishna Prasadam to eager students.
Festival of India has been going to University of Maryland @ the Baltimore County Campus for many years--when the students see the tents, they remember the prasadam!
Srila Prabhupada's followers always make it a point that along with prasadam, the students get some "food for thought". Srila Prabhupada's books are the greatest gift we can give anyone--the gift of Transcendental Knowledge. The devotees in Baltimore and Washington D.C. are freely distributing both Krishna Prasadam and Srila PRabhupada's books.
On Tuesday May 5th, Festival of India visited Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. Above is a professor, after enjoying his prasadam, he's happy and walking out of the hall with a Transcendental Meditation Kit (includng Srila Prabhupada's books) in his left hand.
On Monday, May 4th 2015 Festival of India set up on Towson University
Being the first time to visit this campus, the attendance was a little smaller than the other University programs Festival of India has been doing for many years, but there was a steady, but slow, flow of students. Whoever came received a full plate of prasadam, and a meditation kit. Hare Krishna
Inspired by, and under the Direction of ISKCON's Founder Acarya A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada
Another day, another University campus--Krishna Prasadam; FOI's Exhibits; Srila Prabhupada's Transcendental Books...
Sankirtan Yajna Prabhu and his team giving Srila Prabhupada's Transcendental Books to eager students
Books, going, going, they were going all day--slow and steady, until all the books were gone. Hare Krishna
5:45 am on Friday April 24, Festival of India rolled into the American University Campus in Washington D.C.
Bhaktin Allison, a Student at AU, and the President of the Bhakti-Yoga club on Campus that sponsors the Festival of India
Parts of the Illustrated Bhagavad-gita exhibit, as well as parts of the Vegetarianism & Reincarnation exhibits were also set up on the AU campus.
More than 875 students received plates of delicious Krishna Prasadam
On April 18 Festival of India set up at the ISKCON Temple for the first-ever Holi Festival @ ISKCON Orlando's campus. The Festival attracted more than 500 people, many of whom were university students.
The Orlando ISKCON center, right on Rouse Road, has thousands of cars driving by every day so the above sign was instrumental in bringing the students and other local residents to the festival.
The fun starts...
