An Urgent Appeal

by Shyam Krishna Das, on behalf of the ISKCON Legal Team

Posted February 11, 2007

Devotees from around the world are aware that a dispute between ISKCON, Vrindavan and the Goswamis of Radha Damodar Temple, in respect of Srila Prabhupada's rooms in Radha Damodar Temple, Vrindavan, is presently being heard in the Hon'ble High Court of Allahabad, India. The local court at Mathura has passed an interim order in favour of ISKCON, against which the Goswamis have preferred an appeal in the Hon'ble High Court. The final hearing on this appeal is going to be held on 12th February at Allahabad.

Our legal team is doing its best to produce all the legal evidences before the Hon'ble High Court. However, we would like to humbly beg and make an appeal to all the communities of devotees from around the world to offer your sincere and intense prayers to Their Lordships Sri Sri Krishna Balaram, Sri Sri Radha Shyamsundar, Sri Sri Gaur Nitai and Srila Prabhupada that They may inspire the Judicial board to pass an order granting justice to ISKCON, against the atrocities of the Goswamis.

Offering prayers is an important medium through which we can attract Lord's mercy upon us. At this crucial juncture, a sincere and intense prayer from each one of you will be of immense value for us. You may offer your prayers to The Presiding Lordships in your respective Temples.

We express our deepest heartfelt gratitude to all of you, in advance, for your sincere prayers.

On behalf of the Legal team fighting this battle,
Your Servant,
Shyam Krishna Das
