Thanks! from New Panihati dham
Posted June 29, 2005
The 29th Rathayatra/Panihati Festival at ISKCON Atlanta was a great success. We had perfect weather, long kirtans (bhajans until 1am!), plenty or prasad, and lots of sweet devotee association. We at New Panihati dham want to thank everyone for coming and allowing us to serve you.
We give special thanks to the ISKCON Youth Tour for their "Extreme Makeover", His Holiness Jayapataka Swami for preparing the chip rice from 6am until 1:30pm (who says Swamis don't perform austerities), Festival of India for their timely and excellent festival site setup, Bhaktin Angela for preparing Sri Rath for the 20th time, and the countless number of servants who sacrificed laxmi and service for the sucess of the festival.
We pray that by the grace of Srila Prabhupada, Sri Sri Gaura Nita, and the Vaisnavas that we will be able to improve the festival for the 30 year celebration in 2006 (one of ISKCON's oldest festivals).
