Invitation to Nabadvip Parikrama 2007

Sri Krishna Chaitanya Sankirtan Yangan Samiti is planning a parikrama to all nine islands of Nabadvip during the four days just prior to the Gaur Purnima festival in 2007. Last year's parikrama saw over 2,000 people attending, and everyone is welcome to this event.

The parikrama walking tour begins February 27, 2007 and continues through March 2, culminating in the Gaura Purnima festival on March 3, 2007. Accommodations are in simple tents. We provide running water, twice-daily prasadam and lighting operated by generators, and have guards on duty at night. After the parikrama, we will bring back all the yatri attendees by bus. On the Gaura Purnima day we plan to distribute 50,000 plates of kitchri prasadam to the public.

We maintain a small ashram and temple in Godruma-dvip near the bhajana-kutir of His Divine Grace Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakur. The Sri Krishna Chaitanya Sankirtan Yangan Samiti is independent of ISKCON and the Gaudiya Matha (I am a disciple of Srila Bhakti Promod Puri Goswami), but all devotees are welcome.
