Prabhupadanugas Vancouver, Washington

New Prabhupadanuaga Center in Vancouver, Canada
Regular Rittvik Program!

Dear Prabhus,

Dandavats. All glories to Srila Prabhupada.

I would like to thank Damaghosa Prabhu in encouraging me to hold regular rittvik program here in Vancouver. At first I was hesitant; and I was thinking can I do it? Then he said I know you can do it … that is why I am telling you to do it. I remember on two instances Damaghosa Prabhu asked me: “When are you going to do your own program?” He said if you will not do it, then who will do it? Finally by his encouragement and Prabhupada’s mercy we were able to hold two programs successively. Thank you Damaghosa Prabhu for pushing me in carry out this important mission. I know it is an ambitious task especially for a person like me who is working full time 8.5 hours a day ... but with your support, I think we can do it

We have submitted last week our application for registration of our society, and in a few days, we will get result from BC government. I would like to run this program legitimately so that ISKCON Vancouver cannot do anything to us. I know for sure they are already monitoring our activities. In fact, during our first program, they phoned us and we just said…. can you call later….we are about to begin our kirtan.

We are just waiting for the approval and then we will go out on Harinam to distribute original books only and inserted to it is our flyer. I have attached the draft copy of the flyer for your comments, critics, recommendations, addition or deletion. Please send me your feedback. I think we will be attracting new people to join us as soon as this flyer is out. To me, that is the preferred scenario as supposed to undoing the belief of some of our devotee friends.

Your lowly servant,

Navadvipa Dasa


Hare Krsna Navadveep Prabhu,
Please accept my humble obesiances with all glories to His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Srila Prabhupada, to His Dream, to His Mission

I would like to congratulate you and your entire family for this auspicious endeavor. I am quite confident that Srila Prabhupada is very happy with your effort.
Sometimes we would also make plans to join you in your Sankirtan.


The Hare Kṛṣṇa mahā-mantra also says, “My dear Lord Kṛṣṇa, my dear Lord Rāma, O energy of the Lord, Hare, kindly engage me in Your service.” Although one may be situated in a lowly position, he can execute devotional service under any circumstance, as stated,ahaituky apratihatā: “Devotional service cannot be checked by any material condition.” (Bhāg. 1.2.6) Lord Caitanya Mahāprabhu also recommended this process:

jñāne prayāsam udapāsya namanta eva
jīvanti san-mukharitāṁ bhavadīya-vārtām
sthāne sthitāḥ śruti-gatāṁ tanu-vāṅ-manobhir
ye prāyaśo ’jita jito ’py asi tais tri-lokyām (Bhāg. 10.14.3)

One may remain situated in his own place or his own occupational duty and still lend his ear to receive the message of the Lord from realized souls. The Kṛṣṇa conscious movement is based on this principle, and we are opening centers all over the world to give everyone a chance to hear the message of Lord Kṛṣṇa in order to go back home, back to Godhead.


Beautiful Beautiful Beautiful....

Jai Radhe
Your most fallen servant


Hare Krsna Navadvipa prabhu et all
My obeisances to you and all your good family members
All glories to Srila Prabhupada

Thanks for the letter prabhu and the results of your recent preaching attempts. Lord Krsna and Srila Prabhupada is guiding you, have no fears or doubts about it. Your former "friends" at iskcon cannot harm you at all if you stick to the principles Srila Prabhupada has given to us. They may bark some, but your transcendental caravan will sweetly and nicely pass on without them, leaving them back in the material world of kali yuga.

Nice flyer or is that a business card size?

You wont only get new people but some devotees will come out of iskcon there in Vancouver who are somewhat serious and have some brains left in their heads. Like I mentioned to you before, dont overly and publicly stress the whole ritvik thing at your meetings as this will most of the time end up in some kind of argument, mostly due to peoples lack of understanding siddhanta. Better to just do kirtan, class, let them hear and see Srila Prabhupada, give them nice prasadam and you will all be in bliss and feel very satisfied!!

If some of them have a brain for philosophy, and really want to understand guru tattva, give them our book Srila Prabhupada Siddhanta and that should convince them. It is easy to understand and follow.
Once the former blind followers of iskcon come regularly and associate with you all, they will become convinced that this is what they are really looking for-that higher taste which has eluded them for so long
in the halls and walls of iskcon.

keep it up---Hari bol

Dear Navadvipa Prabhu,

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

I would like to congratulate you for the preaching program you have started with your good family. No doubt Srila Prabhupada and Lord Krishna will guide you in your endeavor and send you all the assistance and devotees required to make your sincere efforts a success. Just do as Srila Prabhupada did and concentrate on preaching without necessarily having to harp on the Rittvik issue and those who participate will see the difference.

My dandavats to you and Mother Vrajabhumi. Hare Krishna.

ys, Krishna Prema Das

  1. do you realize that you are criticizing ISKCON which was founded by SRila Prabhupada? And how can you claim to be followers of SRila Prabhupada? SRila Prabhupada wanted unity among all his disciples and followers...but we are not...we are creating more differences among us!
