One of the biggest book distributors, Mataji ***** has LEFT ISKCON (she had her own team of mataji book distributors, the biggest in Russia). She has left iskcon after she got to know about the guru issue through our Prabhupadanuga group. [PADA NOTE: JAYA!]
PADA NOTE: Our affiliated PRABHUPADANUGA group of devotees were ALSO there at this fest. If you forget the number of devotee attended in all other departments, our men did much much better then the ISKCON folks. Our devotees distributed 5,000 books, other literatures, tapes of Srila Prabhupada, and so on. Our presence was so so much felt that the guru camp had to make announcement 50 times a day for 12 days to ask their devotees to stay away from our group, but many many were coming to our group anyway. Our devotee Alexandra prabhu was lecturing nonstop for 12 days more then 300 devotee attended his lectures daily. Daily harinama was also being done.
