All glories to Sri Guru and Sri Gauranga!
The weekend after next (May 10-12) will be our 2nd year at the Davis Whole Earth Mother’s Day Weekend Festival (on the Campus of UC Davis near Sacramento). We are very excited to be going again this year! By the grace and encouragement of our dear Divyashakti didi, who let us know about this event and encouraged us for so long, finally motivating us to make it up there last year for the first time, we give an appreciative shout out! Jaya Divyashakti didi!
Last year we were all so happily surprised and amazed at the nice location and the open-minded and friendly people at the event. The mood of the people in general was very sweet and friendly. The location is a nice park with trees all around and big grassy area in the middle. There are arts and crafts, music, educational areas, and all the food served there is vegetarian. We passed out lots of invitations and books, and spoke with so many who stopped at our book table to look, listen and ask questions.
This year our service has increased to include some time in the educational/presentation areas, and we will have spots on Saturday and Sunday. Srila B.P. Janardan Maharaj has enthusiastically agreed to speak and lead us in kirtan in the Sacred Space Dome on Saturday. The time is tentatively set for 4-6 pm. Please see if you can join us up there for at least one day, or longer! We need as many devotees to be around as possible to help with the arrangements with Maharaj, setting up (Friday afternoon) and taking down the booth (Sunday-late afternoon), passing out flyers and invites, kirtan, cooking for the devotees, being at the book table, and giving your good association!
The Festival starts Friday afternoon, goes late Friday and Saturday nights, and ends Sunday around 6 pm.
Looking forward to seeing you there! Any questions, please contact me or Bilvamangal Prabhu. If you need a ride, let us know and we can coordinate carpools. Mini-road trip, yay!
