** Due To the Inclement Weather on December 7th, The Gita Jayanti Festival has been rescheduled for December 14th 2003 **

Dear Devotees and Friends,

On Sunday, December 14, 2003 New York ISKCON will be celebrating the day when the Bhagavad Gita was spoken by the Supreme Lord, Sri Krishna to his dearest friend Arjuna, on the Battlefield of Kuruksetra more than 5000 years ago. In the Bhagavad Gita, the sincere reader will be able to gain access to the Supreme Science of Krishna Consciousness. This knowledge was made available exactly as Lord Krishna sopke, to the Western World by His Dvine Grace A.C. Bhaktvedanta Swami Prabhupada, when he published the Bhagavad Gita As It Is.

At Sri Sri Radha Govinda Mandir, to commemorate this occasion, there will be a Gita Maha Yajna Fire Sacrifice, in which the devotees will be chanting some of the principle verses of the Bhagavad Gita, while the priests offer oblations to the Sacred Fire.

Furthermore, This Sunday will be the chance for all Devotees and Friends to purchase large quantities of Bhagavad Gita As It Is at wholesale prices for mass distribution. This book makes the perfect gift for the Holidays, as it will be able to enlighten and uplift the consciousness of anyone and everyone who reads the Bhagavad Gita As It Is. Also, you will be able to sponsor Bhagavad Gitas which will be distributed on your behalf to the person(s) whom you may designate.

Please join us, starting at 6:00pm, for this wonderful festival.

Your Servants,
