29 Oct 2018, Posted by VANI Group in 7 Day Seminar

A 7 day Deity Worship course was conducted at ISKCON Punjabi Bagh under the guidance of HG Amrit Gaura Prabhu. 20 congregation devotees enthusiastically participated in the course. Seven major topics were covered over 6 days including Achamana procedure, bhoga offering, Arti Ceremony, Mantra recitation, snana procedure, jagrana seva, and lastly, syana seva.

After beautifully explaining the entire procedure over a span of 6 days, on the 7th day the devotees were asked to bring there own dieties and perform the entire ritual practically. The course was designed in a very systematic manner and it also enriched knowledge related to proper placement of dieties, worshipping different dieties, travelling with deities etc. Thus its an ideal course highly recommended for all the devotees who either have dieties or plan for installing in future.

ISKCON Punjabi Bagh conducted a 7 day Disciple course for all the inspiring devotees. The course was conducted in 2 batches with 80 devotees each and under the guidance of HG Naamprem Prabhu. The course covered many important topics like guru- shishya relationship, qualification and responsibilities of a shishya and guru, position of various gurus in ISKCON like Srila Prabhupada, Diksha-guru & shiksha guru etc.

The devotees very enthusiastically participated and it turned out to be an interactive session. The course was followed by a test, passing of which will make them eligible for future Initiation.

The course started on the 8-14th October & 15-21 October.

During this festive season more than 100 children of Hare Krishna Sunday school had a day out to enjoy the festivity at ISKCON Bahadurgarh. The picnic was conducted on the 14th of October, under the supervision of 25 teachers from Hare Krishna school.

Children took darshans of the dieties and danced ecstatically on beautiful kirtans. They also organised few activities like dumb charades on different lila’s of the Lordships, Rangoli making and diya decoration. The entire temple was decorated by these little devotees who ended there day enjoying tasty prashadam.

A yatra to the sacred dham of Vrindavan was organised as a gesture to thank all the donors for their enthusiastic participation in the Gita Marathon. This program was intended to facilitate them and also to motivate them to practice Krsna Consciousness. The main purpose of the yatra was to give them complete association of devotees, so that they can also join in the movement of Srila Prabhupada.

All of them attended mangla arti, stayed in dham, took darshans of the Lordships, went to goshala and served the cows and took only prashadam. Thus it was a very well thought and wonderful initiative by ISKCON Punjabi Bagh to preach new people or people who serve only through laxmi to get into practising Krsna Bhakti. This program was conducted on the 6th & 7th of October.
