Vancouver Prabhupadanuga initiations

[PADA NOTE: Vancouver is where Rocana lives. He is apparently boycotting our Prabhupadanuga program there. Our program is having a great success, and we have already outgrown our home program house there, since too many people are coming. 

That means, we have the popular idea. Here in Sunnyvale we had maybe 3,000 people come to the temple for Janmashtami, it was so packed -- people had to see the deity and circle back out of the temple so that more people could come inside. Meanwhile the GBC's temples are empty and are struggling to get guests. We are winning. ys pd]   

Two brothers and a sister take Vaisnava initiation 

from Srila Prabhupada

Hare Krsna to all
All glories to Srila Prabhupada

Today Sept 1st in Vancouver BC Canada, at the ashram of Navadvipa das and his family, many devotees attended the fire sacrifice and initiation ceremony of his children Ram das, laxsman das and their sister Radrarani devi dasi. All were given first initiation by his Grace Yasoda Nandan Prabhu, on behalf of Srila Prabhupada. He is from LA Calif.

It was a total success. Why? Because this family follows the rules and regulations laid down by Srila Prabhupada, namely 4 reg's, chanting 16 rounds minimum daily and rising for mongol arotk and the entire morning program. Therefore there is spiritual potency present. And their devotional service does not end there. As many know, this family is musically inclined, well trained, and have been asked to lead kirtan at many a function. They began holding home/ashram programs some 8 months ago and now people are asking to be put on their temple list for Sunday feast donors at $100 each. And what a feast it was!! I was even told that one of the local "Iskcon leaders" came by, saw a blank spot on that list and asked if he could also donate for one Sunday !

So it is happening, here and all over the world for those who follow the instructions of His Divine Grace A C Bhaktivedanta Swami Srila Prabhupada. Srila Prabhupada had a dream once and he told us that Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu came to him in this dream and said He was withdrawing his mercy from the Gaudiya Matha and giving it to Iskcon. That was when Srila Prabhupada was physically present. Things have now changed. Now it can be truthfully said, that Mahaprabhu is withdrawing His mercy from Iskcon (because they also do not follow the spiritual progam any longer) and He Caitanya is now giving His mercy to devotees like this family and other like it worldwide.
