Last Chance to Register or Preregister for MIHE Courses Online

by Janmastami das

Posted January 28, 2004

Dear Devotees,

Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada.

As you know, we are expecting more devotees to attend this year's Gaura Purnima Festival than have attended any previous festival anywhere in ISKCON's history. In spite of the large turnout, you will be able to take shelter in peaceful MIHE classrooms where senior devotees will offer 27 well-prepared and systematically designed courses that will help you penetrate deeply into Srila Prabhupada's teachings, mercy, mood, and mission.

Because we are expecting a large enrollment, we would like to encourage you to go to our website at to register online, which will ensure your placement in the course or courses of your choice and allow you to avoid the queues in Mayapur at our registration tables. Registering online is important because teachers in many of our courses limit course enrollment in order to optimize learning, and, if you wait to register until arriving in Mayapur, a course you are hoping to attend may be filled. Additionally, by registering and paying online, you are entitled to a 10 % discount on service charges for the semester courses. Online semester registration ends January 21st.

You may also preregister until January 21st for semester courses online, which guarantees availability of course materials on the first day of classes for courses with no limits and wait-lists placement in courses that do have limits. If you preregister, you may remit your service charges upon arrival in Mayapur.

Directly after Gaura Purnima, the MIHE will offer ISKCON's first VTE Bhaktivaibhava Course. Due to the interactive nature of this course, we will limit enrollment to 35 students on a first-come first-serve basis. If you are inclined to participate in this ground breaking course, please take a few minutes now to register online to reserve your spot.

We are looking forward to your association in Sridhama Mayapur and to serving your learning, spiritual, and practical needs. Please let us know if we may be of any assistance as you plan your pilgrimage to Mayapur by writing to us at

Hope you are well.

Your servant,
Janmastami dasa
