Report from the ISKCON 50/50 Campaign Lauch Zurich
Dear Prabhus and Matajis,
Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada!
On the auspicious day of Advaita Acaryas Appearance we officially launched the ISKCON 50/50 Campaign in Zurich with the presence of H.G. Paramgati Maharaja.
To say it with just a few words – “It was a great success!”.
We made two announcements: One during the Tamil program and a second after the Sunday feast lecture. Devotees and guests understood the message and came after the lecture directly forward to pick up their books. We prepared stacks of 10 books, nicely packed in transparent wrapping paper for a price of CHF 108,-, and for those who were eager to go directly for the 50 books we had boxes for a generously reduced price available.
In this way around 300 books were given out and the mood in the temple was magnificent.
Coming out from the temple room one guest asked me “Is there something special today? The atmosphere is so different then usual.”. I replied “Yes, Prabhupada and Gaura-Nitai are very pleased today”.
To whole program is not just about giving out books, but to come closer as a community in doing something together and assisting each other in their service.
Thank you for your ongoing support and spreading the message about this wonderful campaign.
Your indebted servant,
