CENTER FOR VEDIC STUDIES
January 2015 Williston, Fl.
HARE KRISHNA - Welcome everyone once again as we begin another year at the Center for Vedic Studies in Williston. This year marks a very special 50th Anniversary of Srila Prabhupada's arrival, and the beginning of the Hare Krishna Movement in America and around the world. We will be having several programs throughout the year to honor this occasion, including an "All Devotee Reunion" in September. Vaisnavas from all groups are always welcome here. Please plan to visit our Sunday Service, starts at noon every Sunday, guest speakers are welcome. Bring a covered dish if you like.
To begin the year we just completed a "Special Tribute to Srila Prabhupada". The program was held at the Gainesville Public Library in December. Many thanks to everyone who participated in this event, we are planning another musical presentation in May, if you are interested in singing with us please let me know. Here is a link to the video. www.youtube.com/watch?v=hatZdE3CQp4
