On behalf of Srila Janardan Maharaj and Sripad Hasyapriya Prabhu, I’m inviting you to please join us in Santa Cruz on Sunday, September 20th at noon for Sri Lalita Saptami and Monday, September 21st for Sri Radhastami at 6:30 pm. Sripad Sarvabhavana Prabhu will lead the program as Srila Janardan Maharaj will be celebrating the festival in China. As always, the San Jose programs will start at 5:30 with arotik of Sri Sri Guru Gaurangasundar Jiu.
Sri Bhakti Lalita Devi Dasi will be in Santa Cruz on Sunday, September 20th to observe Sri Lalita Saptami during the usual Sunday Feast time. A schedule of the other times she will be speaking is posted below.
By the desire and mercy of Srila Govinda Maharaj we had the good fortune to acquire the property of the Soquel Seva Ashram on the most auspicious day of Sri Radhastami in 1993. Please come to celebrate our inconceivable good fortune of having come in connection with His Divine Grace Srila Govinda Maharaj and the treasure of Krishna Consciousness in this lifetime. We are so fortunate to have this beautiful community and Ashram at the lotus feet of Sri Sri Guru Gauranga Gandharvika Giridhari Jiu.
We are fortunate to have the opportunity to associate with Sri Vishakha Devi Dasi for just a couple more days. She will leave for China on the 18th for ten days, then return again to Santa Cruz.
Yours in the Lord’s service,
Sushila Devi Dasi
