World Holy Name Week 2017
It’s a GBC initiative to annually celebrate Srila Prabhupada’s first landing in the West by Globally holding a week long festival called “World Holy Name Week”. The dates are 9th to 17th September. The idea is to fix these dates for future years also so that the Temples can put it in their diaries at the beginning of each year.
What can you do:
.seminars on the importance of chanting
.show early video footage of Srila Prabhupada in New York
.chant 16 rounds accompanied by Srila Prabhupada’s chanting track
.encourage children to start to chant
.send WhatsApp messages quoting Srila Prabhupada about the importance of chanting
Srila Prabhupada will be very pleased to see that Mahamantra is being sung globally, especially during the period when he landed in the West to start the Global Mission. Let us not forget Srila Prabhupada’s GIFT . to the World. We want this celebration to be big and we can do it with your help.
